The Light in Me Sees the Light in You, a newly released picture book, written and illustrated by Lori Nichols, has made its debut at the perfect time. Last year was, sadly, a year of loss for many children. (There has been much to grieve for all of us during this pandemic.) With its simple, sweet story of friendship and beautiful watercolor and colored pencil illustrations, this book is a gentle introduction to the subject of loss. I am honored to share it as a Storytime Saturdays book and hope that it helps children everywhere.
Permission for the reading of this book in its entirety was granted by the publisher, Nancy Paulsen Books.
