"Reach for the stars, Dear Girl"
My new children's book is COMING SOON!
‘Reach for the stars, Dear Girl’ is a lovingly written and beautifully illustrated book, intended to encourage girls to get to know themselves, to recognise what makes them happy, to find their own voice and stand up for what they believe in, and ultimately to be true to themselves.
Written in rhyme, its words aim to inspire girls of all ages and backgrounds to not only love and accept themselves just as they are, but to rejoice in their uniqueness!
“Get to know who you are, get to know what you want, and stay true to yourself and your voice. Get to know what’s important to you Dear Girl and remember it’s your life, your choice! Of course you’ll be influenced, swayed and enticed, by family, teachers, and chums. Just keep focused on all that you want to achieve, and dance to the beat of YOUR drums! Your time it will come to shine brightly Dear Girl, you’ll do all that you want to achieve. Just have faith and stay focused, work hard and be patient, and most of all ALWAYS BELIEVE!”
I've shared with you here a few of the initial sketches from my wonderful illustrator Rebecca Sabene from Sebecca Design I'm thrilled to bits with them, and can't wait to see them in all their glorious colour when they're finished!
'Reach for the stars, Dear Girl' is due to be published in December 2019 - watch this space!
Love, Fran xxx
