Inspired by her new role as mommy, author and award-winning vocalist Jillian Aversa desired to do something special for her daughter that they could share for years to come.
After writing a beautiful lullaby for her daughter, Jillian decided to make her tribute even more interactive and turned her lyrics into a bedtime storybook. Adding lovely watercolor illustrations by Marina Lezcano, the title Your Light: A Muscial Storybook was born.
In Your Light: A Musical Storybook, you meet a baby bunny rabbit who dreams of a falling star and sets out on a journey to find it. When the bunny encounters a fork in the path ahead, the bunny must choose which way to go. The bunny finds courage by remembering its parents' support and love and in the end, bottles up the star and floats into the sky.
The story is framed in a dream that the baby bunny has while its being tucked into bed at night by its parent. After the baby bunny's dreamy journey is complete, the story leaves you with a sweet image of the parent bunny hugging the sleeping baby bunny and whispering the words, "I'll love you the same."
"My children's book has an accompanying lullaby that I wrote and performed, intended to be played along while reading. The lyrics of the song are the actual text in the book, which is written in rhyming verse," says Aversa, "Parents can learn to sing the song themselves if they want to make the reading experience even more special."
In exchange for our review, we were given a copy of Jillian Aversa's book Your Light: A Musical Storybook. Scroll down to read what we loved about this book and where you can purchase a copy!
