A Mother is a Story: A Celebration of Motherhood


Here’s a bit of a sneak peek at my upcoming book, A Mother is a Story and the journal Stories for my Child, with Abrams Books (coming out this April in time for Mother’s day!). I’m so excited to be able to share these galleys with you. I lettered quotes that are touching, poignant, funny and everything in between. There are too many emotions in motherhood to capture just one so this book has them all. I really hope the words and illustrations resonate with you.

The journal is full of really special prompts and goes from pregnancy through teen years so you can literally hand your child the story of their life. Anyway, eek! So excited to share. Its early days but if you would like to, you can be the first to pre-order them (links above)!

p.s I’m beyond thrilled with the way the gold foil looks. My dream came true!

    I hope you are doing well. I came across this book in a store in Brooklyn but could run through it. I was curious if “A Mother is a Story – A Celebration of Motherhood” is something that is appropriate as a mother’s day gift. When thinking about it, I wasn’t sure if it is a book was more aimed towards a mother gives to a new mother to help explain all the joys of motherhood, or if a son/daughter (no longer a child) could give this to their mother.

    I appreciate the help, since I am no longer in Brooklyn I haven’t been able to find it where I can read through it. I am considering ordering it online.

    Thank you for your time.

    All the best,

    Hi Devan,
    The book is perfect for mother’s day. It’s for mother’s of all ages so would be a great gift for your mom. You can order on Amazon, B&N and Indiebound.
    My Best!
