Book DescriptionYou are strong. You are brave. You are so incredibly good. On an ordinary night in an ordinary house, a father's ordinary words do something extraordinary. Lulled to sleep by these whispered affirmations, his baby girl grows into a fun-loving child, a confident teen, and then a courageous young woman. As she ventures forth into the world on her own, her father's affectionate affirmations—now carried in memory—bolster her through life's challenges and, like whispers on the night wind, come full circle to strengthen her aging father and young son of her own. With breathtaking illustrations from Spanish artist Dani Torrent, Goodnight Whispers is a heartwarming story about a father's love and the power of affirmation.
