Why I Started Writing Children’s Books About Nature

Intro to Magpie Children’s Books

Many of you already know that I’ve been working on and recently published my first children’s book.

I’ll introduce the book below, but first let me introduce you to my self-publishing label Magpie Children’s Books.

I created Magpie Children’s books to publish books about nature and our connection with the world around us. My intent is to provide books that both kids and parents will enjoy.

Nature is very important to me. Being in nature helps me feel connected to the world. It helps me feel refreshed and like myself. Spending time outside can help me feel grounded and reminds me what is most important.

This is an experience I want to share with others; especially kids who are growing up in an increasingly noisy and chaotic world.


“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” – John Muir

Our First Title (Available Now)

The very first Magpie Children’s Book title is called I Have My Baby, My Baby Has Me.

I Have My Baby, My Baby has Me was written to teach children about the beauty of the world and their connection with nature, as well as the special bond between parents and their children.

Children will love learning about the different types of environments in their world and the connections they can find within them. They will also feel the warmth of their parents’ love each time they read this book.

Parents will also love this book. The poetic rhythm is a joy to read and the artwork is beautiful.

The loving feelings the text invokes will warm the hearts of parents and their children.

  1. I love that it’s not just another “silly book” for kids. I love that it might make them feel something.
