Amazon Review: 

A beautiful children’s book full of love!

Love this children’s book because the story is about Alana’s & her great grandma, who is my mother.
I tells a story about my mother in the Dominican Republic and it so sweet! The fact that it bilingual is plus! The author is also my daughter! How proud am I! Hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do! Blessings🙏


Amazon Review:My kids loved your book! They asked me to read it over and over! My oldest daughter (6) enjoyed seeing the little girl go through time and learn great things about her family!! This is definitely a great read for the little ones!




Amazon Review: 
Good book for first time moms!
A very relatable story with some great advice for first time mommies. It was very helpful to read the post partum and breast feeding tips, I'm sure I will revisit this info after my little one is born!


Amazon Review:
The honest truth about pregnancy
Very informative and interesting. The truth about pregnancy and all the honestly about it. Love it!
