Book Summary: A Story About Family Equality

Moms, Dads, and Lily Pads is a rhyming tour of human and animal families. The story introduces over 10 different animals that have different kinds of families, similar to some seen in humans. This picture book for children shows that there is no normal type of family, that we can see this by looking at real animal families in the wild, and that all family types deserve our respect. Readers also get to learn about the species in the story in an educational glossary at the back of the book.

Client Experiences

I've worked with Sabine in both professional and personal settings and there are many reasons I come back to her time after time with commissions or ideas for new collaborative projects. She is an amazing artist who is able to adapt to any type of project, whether it's one where she must follow directions precisely, or one where her creativity is of utmost necessity for success of the project. She is always open to creative suggestions, but can also take the lead and create beautiful illustrations to go with her original ideas. She picks up new media extremely quickly, she is great at planning out projects and maintaining that needed professional side of a working relationship, and she is overall simply a pleasure to work with. I hope Sabine will keep working with me for years to come!
