Why Me, Mama? & OUCH! OOPS! OH NO!
A children's book about the disability experience and a set of three books that tackle bullying by teaching empathy, self advocacy, and perspective.
We created a book about differences, how disabilities are a normal part of life, and how everyone has something, sometimes you see it and sometimes you don't! My little one Rose was born in July of 2020 and after a heart wrenching three weeks not knowing what was wrong, Rose was diagnosed with Moebius Syndrome.
I looked for children's books to help her and her community understand - and didn't find ANY! So I created Why Me, Mama?
When Rose received her rare facial difference - my mind went straight to the classroom. Rose was a three week old newborn and my FEAR of how she would be treated by others because of her difference was all I could think about. So after Why Me, Mama? I decided to write OUCH! OOPS! & OH NO! A set of THREE books designed to teach the skills needed to stop bullying before it happens. Supporting Social Emotional Learning for pre-K through third graders" OUCH! OOPS! OH NO! will be released in August 2024.
