Mia lives with her mom during the week and spends the weekends with her dad. Although she is used to this situation, sometimes doubts overpower reason and bring back hidden fears. The solution? Well, there is no easy solution. But Mia can confirm that a good night’s sleep is all you need... Just don’t forget your stuffed lion!
“Always Nearby” is a children’s book about a common situation for today’s children: living with divorced parents. Mia’s story is set in a magical and whimsical world, full of colorful birds and fluffy tigers. The friends she will make on her journey help her understand that sometimes the biggest problems can easily be solved when sharing them with someone. Be brave and ask for help, someone will surely be there to listen.
The illustrations for “Always Nearby” were created digitally with Adobe Fresco on the iPad.
