"There's just one Little Envy in all of the sea, and that makes you special. Just as loved and worthy."

"Great for both adults and kids"


The books are written for ages 3-12. They come both in hardcover and softcover versions.

The purpose of writing these books is to create universal stories that foster emotional growth and character despite personal differences and beliefs. The books do not contain any religious-affirming language and are considered agnostic, although some stories have spiritual undertones. Little Charity and Little Faith, for example, show prayer in illustrations to convey hope.

Yes! There are plans for many more Little Virtues. To keep up to date, sign up with your email below to be the first to hear about new releases.

Illustrating a children's book is no easy task and Illustrators can easily burn out! Because there are so many virtues to write to and create, we decided on a much more collaborative approach. Each book in the series was purposefully delegated to an illustrator. And although they're different, they all feel like part of the same family. I love the uniqueness of each book while still looking like part of the whole.

The Little Virtues Series is published by WIPF Stock and Publishers. If you're interested in ordering them wholesale for your store or shop, please check out the contact us page.

It's completely up to you! The compilation is one bound book with an affirmations page at the beginning to recite together. It's nice for kids who want to read from one book. But if you love having a collection, then the whole set as single hardcovers.

We love collaborations! You can check out our contact page to reach out.

    A Magical Dive Into Important Lessons

    My 3 year old daughter and I absolutely adored 'Little Envy,’ a heartwarming story that beautifully illustrates the importance of recognizing and celebrating one's unique traits. The vibrant illustrations captured my daughter’s imagination - when she first held the book, she started turning the pages and telling me the story based on the illustrations. I definitely recommend this book.

    Excellent Book

    This is a beautifully written book with great pics! I love how it encourages and inspires kiddos to appreciate who they are as individuals. We are all made with a special gift that is unlike the next person. I highly recommend.

    Imperfect perfection

    Just read this adorable story about a mermaid who's feeling down because she doesn't think she's as special as her friends. Honestly, it hit home. It's not just a story for kids, it really speaks to that little voice inside us all that sometimes whispers we're not enough. There's this part where she meets someone magical under the sea who helps her see how cool she really is, and it's such a sweet moment. The drawings in this are stunning. It's a lovely reminder to celebrate what makes us unique and to love ourselves.
