Book 1: Dream Big –

#1 New Release & Amazon Best Seller, Mom’s Choice Gold Award Winner, Family Choice Award, Writers League of Texas Discovery Prize Winner for 2017

Have you ever wondered how that first Caterpillar achieved the impossible dream of soaring with wings through the sky? Or how that first Tadpole hopped up on the bank of a stream to sing?

DREAM BIG takes readers back to the wilds of East Africa, where life began. Inspired by Joseph Campbell’s book, A Hero With A Thousand Faces, the books shows how each animal goes on their own heroic quest to achieve their dream. Along the way, they meet a moody Baboon who doesn’t believe dreams can come true. But when Baboon sees Caterpillar turn into a winged Butterfly, Tadpole into dancing Frog, he figures out A Powerful Secret—SHHH—that exists between the stars and the animals once they truly believe in themselves and their dreams. You can enjoy The—SHHH—Secret too once you read the book!

Hint:  To figure out Their Secret as you read, watch for CATCH-M, the name they give their big SMILE that invites their wished- upon star to “WHOOSH” down from the heavens and “WHAM” light the gift of stars within their heart!

Book 2: Love Big –

#1 New Release & Amazon Best Seller, Mom’s Choice Gold Award Winner, & Family Choice Winner

In the wilds of East Africa, generations have passed since Butterfly achieved her dream. Life had gotten more complicated because there was not much food. The animals were hungry, mean, and no longer believe in themselves and their dreams. The first Secret—SHHH—their ancestors used only worked for a few. So when Baboon noticed Rhinoceros, Hare, and Lion help each other, he figured out another powerful Secret—SHHH—that exists between the animals and the stardust that surrounds them. As a result, Baboon and his new friends use this Secret to help an unlikely hero save the savannah.

Hint: To figure out The New—SHHH—Secret as you read, watch for CATCH-M again. This time in their big shared SMILES that invite the stardust that surrounds them to “WHOOSH” into their lives and “WHAM” light the gift of stars in their heart!
