As I am ordinarily an analytical writer not prone to creative writing, I knew to sit up and take notice at this little gift from God. I knew the words must become a children's book, although I had no idea how children's books are even produced and published. Being the Type A person that I am, I researched and read and contemplated the traditional publishing model (get agent, send to publisher, fingers crossed they'll take notice and you get published); however, I quickly set that aside in lieu of producing the book myself.
Over the next two years, I created my own publishing company, located and hired a fabulous and gifted illustrator - Sara Burrier - enlisted the help of my multi-talented brother to do the design work, located and hired a book printer... and now, drum roll please.....
Nursies When the Sun Shines - A Children's Book on Night Weaning - is now available for purchase. Woo hoo!!! It's a gorgeous book - it's a beautifully constructed hard cover with durable pages, and with illustrations that bring to mind the classic Good Night Moon. I think you'll like it.
It is my hope that it will be a great tool for my fellow nursing mamas to help them communicate to their toddlers that nursing is for daytime and sleep is for night. I've been in the trenches - with a toddler that woke every 2 hours at night for 2 years.. I wish I had this book then!
The book is available for purchase at www.nursiesbook.com and costs $9.99 plus shipping/tax. Autographed books (should you want one!) are $12.99. Should you be in the Los Angeles area, you can also pick one up at the Los Angeles office of Midwife Davi Khalsa or at the Green Diaper Store in West Hills.
If you order one, I'd love to hear your thoughts - perhaps even feature your comments on my website. So let me hear from you!!
