Book cover sneak-peek! (and Goodreads Giveaway)

Where was I? Oh right, so my next book, Motherhood, is set to launch on April 28th. JUST IN TIME FOR MOTHERS DAY.
"This is the universal story of motherhood, from the gentle moment of birth to the inevitable letting go. In the playful and poignant simplicity that is her signature style, JC Little has captured the tender bond between mother and child. A timeless and wordless picture-book for mothers, sons and daughters of all ages."

Some of you might remember the bare bones of the story as blogpost. I want to bring it to a wider audience, so I fleshed it out into a book with completely new drawings.
  1. This book is wordless. Pictures only. And if you get the Kindle version, the page flips animate. So it's like watching a little film. Feel free to hum a little soundtrack to yourself as you read.

  2. It's for all ages. It's the kind of book that might be given by anyone experiencing mother-appreciation sentiments. Sons and daughters can give it to their moms. Moms can give it to their sons and daughters to help foster an understanding of the experience of motherhood. I'd want to give it to a new or expectant mom, a teen or young adult leaving home for the first time...and children who like to make up the words to the story themselves. I loved doing that when I was small.

  3. NB: some teenagers react to this book by sobbing on the sofa and needing cuddles.

  4. Did I mention that this book will make a perfect Mothers Day present? It'll be available as a paperback. Think of it as a really, really special card. I even included a clear page at the beginning for you to write or draw a little note (I am nice).

  5. This is happening:

  1. JC - I so can't wait to 'read' this! (You do know that this is exactly the kind of reading I teach, don't you? Every September, I have a number of students whose reading vocabulary equals the number of words in your book...so we read the pictures (because all good readers start with meaning, after all...) ;)

  2. I have a few people I can't wait to give this to. :)

    1. Oh that makes me happy. I'll let you know when it goes live.

  3. Thrilled that you've drawn another book! And can't wait to get my hands on it!!!

  4. Congrats. I can't wait to read it.... wait, there are no words. Can you really "read" a book with no words? I can't wait to look at the amazing drawings and make up the words in my head! It'll be like one of those "caption this" photos but in book form.

    1. I loved doing that when I was small. My favourite book was called "A Boy, a Dog and a Frog". It had no words and I wrote right in the book.


Cuz You Rocketh.
