It’s hard to think about my little girl growing up sometimes, and realizing that loving her so much also makes me want to protect her as much as possible. Now that she’s becoming more independent, I absolutely want her to know what to do if she ever finds herself separated from us. The new book launching today, When Lyla Got Lost (and Found) is a perfect way to introduce precautionary measure to a child without scaring them. The book is simple enough for a 3-year-old to understand, but the message is pertinent for older children as well. The watercolor illustrations are endearing and cute- and they certainly engaged my munchkin. Moms can all relate to that split second where something shiny or bouncy takes the attention of a little one, and suddenly they are out of sight! Lyla’s experience provides peace of mind for both parents and children, so a happy (and relieved) reunion can take place.
