What a great idea. Erica's illustrations and insights together are so wonderfully digestible, whimsical, and peace- and curiosity-inducing. From the first time I saw Erica's work I saw her precious mind in the turn of a pencil stroke, her patience and humor, and that voice is right there in this book. Each activity and illustration gifts me a totally stress-free task to engage me further as a person, as a mom, as someone who wants to do more and is sometimes so overwhelmed by the wait and rush of this ride. This book makes me feel younger. Get it for yourself. And everyone you like. And a special one for someone you loathe. It's a win-win.
