book reviews + kind words

Dear Jessie,
Your book is absolutely wonderful. I love the beautiful story, the spectacular layout, the amazing illustrations, and precious photos.  You did a great great job, and I wish you the very best with it.  I loved it, and "my" Sarah is the perfect age (and size!) for it.  She's the littlest one of her age of all her friends and in her ballet and gymnastics class!  I was thrilled to give it to her, and will gift the others I bought to friends.

Hello Jessie,
Something very special happened today and it involves your book. I thought I would share it with you. My very dear sister friend lost her baby girl at 38 weeks and 4 days gestation on May 15, 2015. This angel girl, Harper Grace, was to be a little sister to her big brother and the apple of her parents' eye. My friend and I gathered this summer in celebration of Harper's short life. While we were together, I presented my friend with a gift that included the story of the hummingbird from Papyrus. I also told her that shortly after Harper's passing, my husband found a baby hummingbird that had fallen from the nest – almost dead on our patio. We saved that little baby hummingbird. My friend shared with me that on the day of Harper's funeral, upon her return home…a baby bird from the nest near their front door flew – for the first time – into their house. We both felt that Harper was paying us a special visit. My friend and I text each other daily. This morning, I received a text from her that said "Yup, its true. There is a children's book called Little Harper Grace and the Hummingbird" - we were both floored. Just wanted to reach out and share this joy with you. You are part of a sign from an angel…helping a grieving mother rise and live today.

- Thank you for showing up on the planet. A new fan

I wanted to leave a comment commending you on writing such an outstanding book. I am an elementary teacher and mother of a premature baby. I plan on trying to incorporate your book into our school wide fundraising efforts for the March of Dimes this year.

- Thank you. Ms. Spencer
