Best Book Review Ever!!

Kobin’s parents sent this review of my children’s book, Buttons. It put a smile on my face! I just had to share it with you! 🙂

“Kobin has wanted to read it every night since your book arrived. We then spend the next several minutes looking for exactly eight examples of buttons in his bedroom before I am permitted to turn out the lights.” 🙂

The Illustrator Behind Buttons

Buttons picture book

Since I have ZERO artistic talent, I needed to find a talented illustrator for my children’s book, Buttons!  My sweet hubby, Mr. Wonderful, found an amazing illustrator, Sarah Gledhill, on She was incredibly patient as we clumsily navigated our way through my first self-published book. It took 5 months and over 200 emails to achieve the final product, but we did it! Thanks for bringing Buttons to life, Sarah! I couldn’t have done it without you, and I wouldn’t have wanted to try! 😉

The Inspiration Behind Buttons

Inquiring minds want to know, “Where did you get the idea for your picture book, Buttons??” It’s always fun to hear where inspiration strikes, so here is it-my daughter, Laura Pickrell Ambrosio’s, adorable About Me book from the mind of her 3rd grade self. Within the pages, was a clever and silly poem about buttons with tiny buttons glued all over the page. It was so cute, we just couldn’t keep it to ourselves. 🙂

Buttons is available on Amazon! Hope you love it as much as we do!

You never know…maybe lurking in all your child’s school papers is a beloved children’s picture book just waiting to be published.

I’d love to hear from you! Where do you find inspiration?
