Welcome to Simple Abundance Online

Our happy task as we read to our children
and grandchildren is to help them (as well as ourselves!)
recall a few moments which brought smiles
to their faces and made the day special.
—Sarah Ban Breathnach

Dearest Friends,

Some of life's sweetest pleasures are the unexpected surprises. When I began my journey into the world of children's books, I considered myself a seasoned writer. What I was to discover was a wonderful world of communication to the minds, hearts and imagination of children. I'm sure I had read just about every picture book available at the time to my daughter when she was little. From Tasha Tudor to Good Night Moon, we reveled in the magic that lived inside the pages. Our family's nightly ritual became our most important activity of the day. Reading at bedtime to a child of any age turns down the volume and mind-numbing distractions of modern life. It provides us all with a sense that life is a blessing and that if we take the time to notice, we will see the miracles all around us.

If you are a fan of Simple Abundance and the first principal of the Simple Abundance path, Gratitude, you know how important it is to write down five things each day for which you are grateful. When the focus of our life is on how much we have, our world expands. I believe that sentiment holds true with The Best Part of the Day as well. When I think of what the world would be like if children are taught to look for the best part of every day, I imagine a peaceful world, like the one created by our talented Illustrator, Wendy Edelson. It is with a very grateful heart that I share this life-affirming book, The Best Part of the Day (Regnery Kids) with you. I hope you will find as much comfort and joy on the pages of my first children's book as I have.
