When Clouds Embrace

April 24th, 2017 Posted by Tabula Rasa No Comment yet

Do your kids share their fears with you? Does your three-year-old know how to deal with a fear of loud thunder, the shadows in his bedroom, blue boggles, and spooky ghosts? Do you find yourself stuck for ideas and explanations? I did. So I made up a story. A year later I wrote it down. A dear friend, Antonia Catsambas, agreed to illustrate it. Today, the book is on my son’s bookshelf. The first time I read it to him, I was petrified, terrified that he, my target audience, wouldn’t like it. Not only did he ask me for it every night that week, but he shared a new fear each time. I’m still awful at easing them all, but I’m comforted by the fact that something I created has led him to communicate, to reach out, to never feel embarrassed about being scared of the huge pink alien under his bed.
