Always Mom, Forever Dad
Published May 15, 2014 from Tilbury House Publishers.
In today's world, more and more children have parents who live separately. As these children move between homes, they can't help but wonder: Will Mom still love me? Will dad? In this reassuring picture book, young readers see children who have two households whether because of divorce, separation, or other circumstances experiencing life's ups and downs with both parents secure in the knowledge that Mom will always be Mom, and Dad is forever Dad.
I wrote this book so children will never doubt they are loved.
I must say I adore Penny Weber's illustrations. She included 8 different families showing the beautiful diversity of the world we live in. I love that many children can see themselves in this book. :)

A"I'm scared I'll forget you…'
From the perspective of a young child, Joanna Rowland artfully describes what it is like to remember and grieve a loved one who has died. The child in the story creates a memory box to keep mementos and written memories of the loved one, to help in the grieving process. Heartfelt and comforting, The Memory Box will help children and adults talk about this very difficult topic together. The unique point of view allows the reader to imagine the loss of any they have loved - a friend, family member, or even a pet. A parent guide in the back includes expert information from a Christian perspective on helping children manage the complex and difficult emotions they feel when they lose someone they love, as well as suggestions on how to create their own memory box.
