Meet Rose Sprinkle
Hi! I'm Rose Sprinkle and I'm the author and founder of The Little Virtues. Little did I know that when I wrote one book, The Little Virtues would grow into a company and life mission. I am passionate about storytelling, learning, and helping families and caregivers connect with children to help them become their best selves. I call the Pacific Northwest my home and have lived here for over 15 years.
For years I thought I would become an elementary school teacher, but instead pursued another love of graphic design. The Little Virtues is a marriage of these two passions, education and art. For years I've been fascinated by human relationships, development, and what makes people happy. Each Little Virtue was written at a time when I was struggling to learn that particular principle. It is my belief that true joy is found when we grow through struggles and come out better having gone through them. The Little Virtues books are written to encourage, inspire, and remind us what it means to be human. By practicing virtues, kids develop the resilience and emotional intelligence necessary to live a good life.
How The Little Virtues Began
Years ago in high school, I told my mom that one day I was going to write a children's book, so maybe I knew it was always meant to be. Little Love was the first Little Virtue to be picked up by my wonderful publisher and we've never looked back. Writing these books have continued to be a cathartic and healing experience for me as I constantly grow and fumble through this beautiful mess we call life. I am happy to be joined by a wonderful team of illustrators, educators, and fans who continue to support and extend The Little Virtue's mission to touch people's lives.
