New Children's Book Supports Those Dealing With Mental Health Issues And Chronic Illness Su

Created by Local Author and Illustrator, 'Moon Child Rising' is the Perfect Book for Lyme Disease Awareness Month and Mental Health Awareness Month
CHICAGO - May 4, 2023 - PRLog -- Inspirebytes Omni Media announces the recent release of the children's book Moon Child Rising. Written as a love letter from a mother to her child, the book explores the moon's effect on chronic illness, such as Lyme Disease. Chicago-based author Meredith Park worked with local illustrator Frances Vail, to create a book that takes the reader on a journey through the phases of the moon and how they can affect individuals with chronic illness or mental health issues. The recent release is timed to support Lyme Disease Awareness Month and Mental Health Awareness Month, both in May.

Based on Park's and her daughters' personal experience with chronic Lyme disease, the book invites us all to move through life with more self-care, compassion, and awareness. She shares, "I wrote Moon Child Rising after years of fighting for my daughter's health and wellbeing. I hope the words resonate with children and families who may need a reminder that things can and will get better." Moon Child Rising is a book anyone can enjoy and find supportive.

Beautifully illustrated in vibrant watercolor, Fran Vail has captured images from nature leaving the reader feeling inspired, curious, and engaged. "I love nature and the effect of light shining, reflecting, and penetrating objects," says Vail. "As a book illustrator, I love collaborating with an author. It's an incredible source of inspiration and gives me huge joy and satisfaction to see the final product and share it with our readers."

Moon Child Rising is recommended for children ages 6-10 and is available now for $14.95 on Amazon or by request anywhere books are sold.
