About the Author

Josephine Wai Lin is a debut author who grew up from humble beginnings in Anaheim, California. The daughter of Filipino immigrants (dad in the Navy, mom a medical assistant), she never knew you could get paid to be creative. After graduating from the University of California, Los Angeles with degrees in English and Psychology, she's been doing just that--working as an advertising creative, entrepreneur, and mother of two. Sandy Lopez is an illustrator who was born and raised in Los Angeles. Like most college graduates, after graduating UCLA she didn't know what she wanted to do. After five years of teaching kiddos, plus a quarter life crisis, Sandy found her creative side and never let go. She is a self-taught designer and illustrator who has a passion for color and self-love.


"With effusively inclusive rhyming language, Wai Lin crafts a promise of unconditional love from guardian to child...this affectionate volume imbues a classic 'be yourself' narrative with gender-expansive affirmations, positioning guardians as partners in their children's journey to 'find what's authentic & true.' " --Publishers Weekly
"Bright colors and minimalist illustrations make this inclusive, rhyming book engaging and easy to follow as it assures children in no uncertain terms that they are worthy of and will be provided love, no matter who or what they become." --Foreword Reviews
"Don't let the simplicity of this book fool you - If every parent read their child books like these early on, raising inclusive, loving kids would be as easy as teaching them to say 'please' and 'thank you.'" --Sarah Lacy, Founder and CEO at ChairmanMe
