Written by Margarita del Mazo, Illustrated by Silvia Álvarez
Lucy's Light is a vibrantly illustrated tale about finding your own light. Printed on stone paper, this magical experience reminds anyone trying something new to never compare their brightness to others, and to try again when things don't go the way you expected the first time. It's also a beautiful example of how we best support those we love by allowing them to grow at their own pace.
