Appreciate art, become brave, and choose compassion. Pairing big ideas like generosity, respect, and joy with the letters of the alphabet, this beautiful book encourages children to make the most of each day and leave their mark on the world.

LETTERS TO LIVE BY is the little alphabet book of my heart. I wrote it way back in 2015 as a note-to-self. I love the alphabet and the structure it provides for story, emotion, thoughts, and lists! Each letter is an alliterative pairing of action items meant to gently coax young readers (and old readers) toward the best versions of themselves. The illustrations by Asa Gilland are delightful. I’ll keep you posted on the cover reveal. You’re going to love all the sweet details!
