Sheldon is a little turtle that begins to ask big questions that all parents stumble to answer: “Where do babies come from?”. Although parents tend to struggle with finding the right words to explain the magic of it all, it can be even more challenging for those families who have followed a less conventional path to the creation of their family unit.
I love that it takes into consideration that not every family is created through the same process and yet every family is special in its very own way. The love of a parent is strong and the bond with their child unbreakable, regardless of the way they found each other. Families of all walks of life are sure to enjoy this story as Sheldon swims around the reef in “The Search for the Magical Egg”. Play it up as you read it and your kids will be captivated, leading to an inspiring discussion and further appreciation of all different family models.

Life is by far the most valuable of gifts. It doesn’t matter how life appears as much as the magic that comes when it does and in how it sparkles as it exists. This beautifully crafted tale explores just one of the many momentous journeys in the creation of life, with a heartfelt testament for how never-ending love can come to be. Lincoln, this is your story. It’s about the extraordinary gift and existence of you. In the words of Dr. Seuss, ‘Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.’ We’re so lucky you’re here existing in this world. Keep sparkling!”
