Chantilly, VA (Vocus) February 28, 2010 –
Publisher, Xlibris invites readers to step into a magical world of friendship and self-discovery as it releases a new picture book, Finding Me. Written and illustrated by Melody A. Krafft, this book speaks to both children and adults.
This deceptively simple story expresses the universal struggle of finding who we really are. It begins with a young girl, Zoe, who feels sad and alone, and she doesn’t know why. In her quest to feel whole she decides one day to leave home and search for her answer. Along her journey she is befriended by two protective dogs, Chance and Gracie. After traveling the countryside they come upon a great willow tree and an unexpected surprise beneath it. This leads Zoe to a remarkable discovery that holds the possibility of finding her answer and the promise to find answers to all the questions she will ever want to know.
Lavishly illustrated in expressive, delicate strokes of watercolor, Finding Me opens a door of limitless possibilities, leading readers of all ages to discover a path of finding oneself.
