Another in our Meet the Author series - Shanalee Sharboneau

Meet the Author Series at Paragraphs
Thursday, June 9th 2016       1-3 PM
My Mama Loves Me: I’m Her Little Girl
Discussion, Book signing and reception with author, Shanalee Sharboneau

My Mama Loves Me: I’m Her Little Girl has the same lullaby as text from Shananlee’s first book, My Mama Loves Me: I’m Her Little Boy but the gorgeous illustrations by Israel Dilean really makes the love between mother and daughter come alive with equal intensity as the first book.  Stop by Paragraphs to view these two books and fully appreciate the quality and detail of the artwork. 
Shanalee's son Braydon was born in 2010 with severe reflex. She and her husband, Perry, spent the first 6 months with their son on a 24/7 vigilant watch to make sure his condition did not bring him back to Heaven.

Shanalee spent countless days rocking her son humming nursery tunes to calm him. None of them worked, until she began to hum a melody which later formed words. These words turned into lyrics, lyrics turned verses, and the verses became the beautiful lullaby she sang to her newborn son entitled "My Mama Loves Me".
After Braydon’s reflux went away, Shanalee wrote down all the melodies to the lullaby so she would not forget the loving song she once sang to her infant son, over and over again, to calm him in his time of need. This became the book, My Mama Loves Me: I'm Her Little Boy, followed by My Mama Loves Me: I'm Her Little Girl, the second in her childrens series, My Family Loves Me.

Shanalee's books are sold at Paragraphs and online all over the world, including Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Austria, Africa, Russia, Germany, Japan, China, Mexico, Spain, Italy and France. She was featured on "Moving America Forward" hosted by William Shatner.

Her books have been recognized by Financial Guru, Dave Ramsey, The President of Ireland, Michael Higgins and Former First Lady, Laura Bush. 
This event is free and open to the public.
