About the Book
“With her humble crayons, Silvia creates an illustrated storybook that follows a child’s wondering about his changing world in times of the COVID-19 pandemic. What makes this story different, and enduring is that as the child explores the big city where he lives through his window; he discovers that his dad, an immigrant supermarket delivery man, is a superhero of the pandemic but his dad has a different idea about who the real superhero of these times is!”
About the Author
“Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Silvia’s work as an educator, child parent psychotherapist, and clinical social worker has been centered on a deep love and respect for the internal world of the child. In 2010, Silvia discovered, through the deeply transformative experience at the Infant Parent Mental Health Fellowship at the University of Massachusetts, led by Dr. Ed Tronick that creating cuentos, or short illustrated stories for children, could give a powerful voice to the Latino-American immigrant mothers with whom she has worked for the last twenty-five years.
She published her first cuento, “”Mommy, tell me, how you got here?” (bilingual edition) in 2013. This book creates a dialogue that helps these mothers remember, share and embrace their untold stories with their children. Silvia expanded this story in her second cuento, “Mommy, tell me, why did you come here?” (bilingual edition). Silvia’s books have been well received internationally, most recently at the 2018 Guadalajara International Book Fair, where she was guest speaker, the 2018 Frankfurter Buchmesse, and the 2019 International Academic Migration Conference in Bari, Italy.
Silvia has written and illustrated many “cuentos,” inspired by the courage, love and hope of the immigrant families she works with. Some of them will be published; some of them will be used only in the intimacy of her psychotherapeutic work and some of them will remain in her heart. Every time Silvia creates a “cuento,” she hopes to honor her Abuelo “Bigotes,” the magical storyteller of her childhood.
Silvia was the Connecticut Infant Mental Health Association 2014 Jane C. Bourns Award recipient for Excellence and Exemplary Service to Young Children and their Families in the Field of Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health.”$2.99–$12.99

About the author:
My name is Chantal Louis and I am the author of Old Rusty Daniel. Old Rusty Daniel is a testimony of my life. I faced many obstacles because I was a sick child. I was called “retarded”, “flat face”.
My family would joke about who would take me in because I was too slow to learn. My parents believed in me especially my mother. My mother would pray over me declaring greatness over my life. I loved when she prayed for me but when I got to school, kids would attempt to hurt me. They pulled my hair and laughed at my clothes. I remember coming home taking all my mom’s pills, I wanted to die. One thing I learned from suicide, if God don’t approve it, it cannot and will not come to pass.
I had a calling over my life. I began to worship and worshiped. I was leading service at church concerns. I was the first one to buy a house in my mother’s kids. The Lord blessed me. I love to write, imaging and worship. One day, I will be a speaker. Nothing is impossible with God strength in me. I live today to give children hope. I am a proud mother of five.
I wrote this book to empower everyone specially children all over the world. Believe in God for everything. No matter what is looks like, He is there.
Do not allow no one to tear you down. Your life has a purpose. The devil wants to see you fall but in the name of Jesus, we service him an eviction letter out of our territory and mind. Remember to pray and have faith for everything. Do not give up. The battle is not yours, it is for the Lord. God bless you.$12.00

The reason why Melody just laughed it off about the items she bought being magic. She thought Mr. Lee was just making small talk. She finds out later that her pockets really are magic. Mr. Lee could have told her that the pockets were magic. But they’re only magical if the owner’s heart is good and because Melody is good …the pockets are magical. The same way if the owner’s heart has bad intention to do wrong. Then their pockets will have no reaction. They would just be regular old pockets with no meaning. So make your pockets shine and filled them up with good things. Even if you just put a pen in your pocket. You will never know when someone needs something to write with. They may not need one today. But, you are doing good because you are putting good and useful things in your pockets for others. That’s a great way to start$10.95
