Local Author Releasing New Children's Book
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Local author Dan Sadlowski will hold an official release celebration for his new children's book, "The Universe Is Rooting for You," from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Barnes & Noble at 555 Hubbard Ave.
In "The Universe Is Rooting for You," a little boy surprisingly discovers everything in the universe and in nature is truly rooting for him - the sun, moon, stars, leaves, trees, and more. This children's book aims to inspire readers everywhere to appreciate the natural world around them, connect with nature and give back.
Four local artists worked collaboratively to complete this children’s book. In addition to author and art director Sadlowski, from Pittsfield, the illustrations/watercolors were done by Allison Pierce from Brighton, Mass., the digital editing and mastering were done by Emily Gabriel of Pittsfield and the watercolor guest artist is Samantha Sadlowski of Pittsfield.
Sadlowski is the author of the beloved children's book "Finding Brooklyn - And The Next Great Superhero." "Finding Brooklyn" boasts the first original female superhero in a children's book. This resilient story encourages readers to feel empowered, be different and believe they have superpowers within.
"Nature is so awe-inspiring and loves us in so many ways," Sadlowski writes in an author's note in the book. "Encourage your children, students, family members, friends, and yourself to connect with nature. Explore it. Go on new adventures. Open your imagination, heart, and mind. Look around, who knows what you may find."
Each book comes with a custom packet of wildflower seeds. At the end of the story, readers will find a list of simple ways they can connect with nature and give back. These are simplified yet empowering ways to take care of nature, start a positive conversation on climate change, and list action-based natural climate solutions.
