More about the Message

Children are faced with daunting expectations and unrealistic standards in mainstream media. Princesses are beautiful; princes are strong; the heroine always wins. But what happens when we don’t win? When life is tough? As children follow Misho on her exciting adventure, they’ll cheer for her when she reaches for the stars, cry for her when obstacles seem insurmountable, and learn that she is wonderful just the way she is.   Read the full description.

We’re breaking children’s book tradition here by adding full color illustrations to almost every page of an Early Chapter book. We believe in the power of words and pictures to tell a story, each enriching the other.  And we know each child learns best in her or his own way.

I love the friendship between Misho and Tomo.

I look back at my life and wonder sometimes how I made it through some of the hard times.  I wish someone had just told me, “It’s going to be okay if you stay focused on what really matters.”  I can give that gift to my grandchildren with Misho.
