"Don't settle for an average life when there's always a way into the sky if we keep our hearts open to it,
believe it's forever there and have the courage to go towards it."

All of my poetry and every cell in my being points to and embodies this theme. It’s my desire for humanity to experience this. I am here to help those who are ready to dig out of the heavy heartedness and pain of shame, etc. and into the light of their own “poetry" of joy, hope, peace and harmony with oneself and the world. Are you ready to remember the magic, wonder and joy in you? Your soul is patiently waiting to be uncovered, dusted off, and aired out so that it can dance and shine brightly once more. Shall we dance?

The Lonely Toadstool

The Lonely Toadstool Snail

Regardless of age, we all struggle at times with letting our real feelings and needs be heard. 


This is the message of The Lonely Toadstool, a story that empowers children to express themselves, knowing they are safe and will be surrounded with a caring community. When the lonely toadstool can no longer hold in his loneliness and despair, he “lets out a cry” and is surprised when the result is newfound friends and a welcome feeling of peace. Forest animals, a gnome, a fairy, insects and more, all creatures he thought were very different from him, hear his cry, and his anguish causes them to cease their activities and form a search party to help their neighbor in need.

As if holding their hand in friendship, this enchanting poetic story gently encourages the reader to see the importance of letting their own emotions and needs be known and to experience the unexpected human joy of exchanging loneliness for love and acceptance.

“I’ve tried to keep current with Kristin's posts.  She is a remarkable young woman, wise beyond her years!!!!  I ordered a number of the books she recommended. They have all arrived and are waiting for the grandchildren to arrive for a visit.  I love her book reviews and they are so accurate!

Kristin's booklists are SO much fun! Not only for kids, but for us adults, too. The nostalgia I receive from traveling through her well-thought-out picture book recommendations (many of which I remember from my childhood) is something I try to share with my nieces on our weekly babysitting nights. Thanks, Kristin!"


“Weave Sunshine Publishing's picture booklists are the reason my 7 year old daughter is finally more open-minded to reading! We will definitely be keeping up with the months ahead and can't wait to discover more favorites!"
