At the end of last year, Lígia Carvalho released her second book: “Grandma is a Star”. According to the author, “with a very little theme explored by the children’s literary universe, the book addresses the loss of grandma in a light way, but tries to make the children do not forget the good memories created ”. On the other hand, the book aims to contribute to parents in addressing a subject that, perhaps, it had not yet been discussed with the children. Talk to a child about death can be challenging. Although its author leaves course it is not a scientific work, the book has the purpose of help parents in this difficult task. In the last pages, there is a space where the child can express his feelings.
At the moment, Lígia Carvalho is promoting the dissemination of her two books and participating in literary fairs in Canada and the United States. But he confesses that he already has several projects for the future. His books are available on Amazon, Barnes and Nobel.
