Alphabet Living emerged while I was pregnant with our son, Julien. While preparing for his arrival, we began looking for children's books that conveyed themes of decency, mindfulness, and strength. Finding no alphabet book that tapped into the concepts we wanted to actively champion as parents, we decided to take matters into our own hands—for as the saying goes, when you want something done, do it yourself. And with that, we began writing Alphabet Living.
Written and illustrated for people of all ages, Alphabet Living fosters meaningful reading experiences. It was created in such a way that parents and children will enjoy reading and learning from it.
Anyone can grow and evolve via the alphabet.
Each letter features the book's characters, Abby, Zeke, and their fearless companion Ay2zee, who is with them every step of the way! Abby, Zeke, and Ay2zee are sure to please, with engaging and thoughtful activities that capture the essence of each letter's respective word.
What started as a vision for one, has grown into something for many. May it help everyone to move through life with confident footsteps and as a force for good.
Alphabet Living is a playful and sincere inspirational book, guided by a seed-like intention: It is our hope that the more you read it and/or hear its poems, the more its concepts and ideas will take root. Yes, it is an alphabet book, but within its covers is a layout of verse and imagery that inspires art-poetry-song-thoughtful conversation, etc.
