My Mommy is a Saint - A Children's Book For Kids Of All Ages

$6,118

48

This children's book was brought to life because of Chris's personal story of longing to express love. He lost his mom to cancer at the age of 15 and never told his mother how much he loved her because it wasn't the cool thing to do. When she passed, he made a declaration that he would never hold back love again. The goal of this book is to show children vulnerability in a fun and wonderful way and give them the language to express love to their mother. We hope this helps them grow up to live in a way without the same regret. 

We want to help you cultivate an environment of love and honor within your home by having the expression of these sentiments throughout this playfully rhyming book. Written from the perspective of a child, we aim to help give your children an unabashed sense of joyful gratitude for their mother. 

Because his mommy protects him, prays for him, and loves him so well, he must think of his own way to show his mommy how much he loves her!

We had the honor of working with the wonderful illustrator Elettra Codignotto. The pictures have two lovable characters, mom, and son, and you can see their close bond throughout this fun and imaginative book. 

Pledge your support to see this book funded and into the hands of families everywhere.
