Little Luna

I am very excited to announce that I will be self-publishing my children’s book, ‘Little Luna and The Universe’ at the end of the month.

I wrote and illustrated Little Luna and The Universe five years ago, so it feels really good to finally be putting it out there.

The inspiration for the book came to me when I was baby-sitting for a little girl named Sophie. She was three-years-old at the time. She asked me, “Why does the moon follow the sun?”

At that moment I knew I wanted to write a children’s book to teach children about the Universe.

When I started writing the book, I thought it was only going to be serving to teach children about the Universe from a scientific point-of-view. As I continued writing and re-writing, a story and a character named Little Luna had developed.

Once I finished, I realized that this book was not only a way for children to learn about the bigger picture of the Universe on a scientific level, but it was also a way to expose children to the spiritual themes of love and oneness that are so often associated with the Universe.

On the night we meet Little Luna, she dreams herself to a distant place in the Universe. She must learn about the Universe before she can go back home and return to wake up in her bed.

She learns about galaxies, the solar system, and the names of all the planets. She also learns about the moon, and that the Universe and everything in it, is one. She understands that she is part of that oneness. After she returns home that night, Little Luna realizes that her perception of the night sky has been forever changed. She is grateful for what she has learned on her journey that night and now recognizes the importance of her dreams.
