Praise For Child of Galaxies

“A poetic ode to the universe that exists inside each child […] The painterly illustrations shine as they toggle between fantastical images of kids floating among stars and planets and scenes of everyday life in the city and country, at the beach and art museum. Textured linework and warm colors create a playful world.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Looking at things on a cosmic scale teaches philosophical calm and poise, and this creation welcomes young voyagers as they attempt it.”
—Publishers Weekly

"It really offers a sweetly mindful view of life. The lovely whimsical naive-style illustrations celebrate nature and include people of many colors, abilities and creeds."
Youth Services Book Review 5-star review
