CTK READS!  News from the Library 
 

Two children’s books written by #1 New York Times  bestselling news journalist Ainsley Earhardt, Take Heart, My Child, A Mother’s Dream and Through Your Eyes, My Child’s Gift to Me have been donated to our CTK library. Ainsley’s first book, Take Heart, My Child, A Mother’s Dream, is a lyrical lullaby in which she shares her own hopes and dreams for her child. Whatever challenges life brings, she reminds the listener of the universal message “I will—or my love will—always be there for you.” It celebrates everyday wonders and miracles by sharing precious life lessons parents can pass onto their children. The stories are presented as a mother expressing her hopes for her daughter, advising her child to take risks and be independent. As the book moves from the sea to the forest and into the night sky, the captivating illustrations capture the text. Take Heart, My Child may inspire a new generation of children to follow their hopes, their passions, and realize that dreams can come true. Ainsley’s second book, Through Your Eyes, My Child’s Gift to Me, was written after the birth of her daughter and celebrates everyday wonders and miracles. She reflects on her experiences as a mother viewing wonders and surprises of the world through a child’s eyes. So often as we race through life, we need the wisdom and perspective of a child to remind us what is important and what should be celebrated and remembered…the everyday joys, miracles and simple pleasures of life. While children delight in the beautiful illustrations and enjoy the mini stories, we are reminded that children teach us, awaken our own inner child, help us to slow down, listen, watch and to treasure each precious moment. Both books are written for children 4-8 years of age but they remind all of us to enjoy every moment, don’t take life too seriously…it passes quickly, do the right thing always, never be afraid to change your course and love beyond measure. ~ Kay Marotz—Library Team
