The Food Doula Cookbook

PRAISE:

“The Food Doula Cookbook should be required reading (and cooking) for all mothers-to-be. It is, hands down, the best pre- and post-natal culinary nutrition-infused cookbook out there. The evidence-based insights, nutrition guidance, menu inspiration, and nutrient-dense, easy-to-make, delicious and beautiful recipes make it an incredible guide for optimal nourishment for expectant mothers. And I have no doubt the recipes will become family staples and favourites long after baby arrives. The Food Doula Cookbook is now my go-to recommendation for all expectant moms.”

CHILDREN'S BOOKS

Light in the Forest

By Holly Carr

The idea for Light in the Forest grew from author and artist Holly Carr’s wish to ease her then 5-year-old son’s anxieties.

The book was inspired by Carr’s own experiences as the parent of a child afraid of the dark. In Light in the Forest, Holly Carr uses her dramatic silk paintings to help children confront their fears and find a way through the dark into the light. Carr shows children that they can sometimes create their own fears and teaches them the mantra “Do not be afraid. I am not afraid.”

These events demonstrate Willa’s strong ties to family, friends, and students as well as the ways in which she makes a lasting impact on her community.
