You Were Smaller Than a Speck

     Lately I have been thinking a lot about books, and specifically children’s books. Where is the best place to buy them? What is the best way to find out about unique, cool, inspiring books? How do you create an inspiring library without breaking the bank? I am on the lookout for the greatest and best resources to share with you lovely readers. But until then, I wanted to share an amazing new book with you all called, You Were Smaller Than A Speck.

     You Were Smaller Than A Speck, was written by my darling, talented friend Tessa Marie Aranda. It is her fist book- and it is so beautiful -the illustrations are all hand painted by Tessa herself. The book sheds light on the questions all preschoolers inevitably ask, “Moma, where do baby’s come from?” It is a simple, and truthful explanation that gets right to the point. The illustrations are charming; the book is a perfect blend of serious facts with whimsical imagery. It is appropriate for all ages, and is perfect for growing families. I cannot wait to read through it with Hazel. 

     Tessa is taking pre-orders now for the book HERE. The book is $12 for an 8 by 8 inch soft cover book. 


  1. This looks LOVELY! I am absolutely going to check it out.

  2. Oh my gosh! Thank you so much for this write up! It's a soft cover book, though. And you will be getting one for Hazel this week!
