NEW BOOK IS AVAILABLE NOW!

A Great Bear Hug for Two  is about a mother’s dedication and support for her child. It’s a book about love ❤️ Through all life’s ups and downs, a child is supported by their parents. This support is shown in many ways, and one of the best ways is with a hug… a great bear hug for two! Written in rhyme, this book creates moments to be shared between a mother and child that can last a lifetime. My wish is for this book to become the catalyst for a new wave of Great Bear Hugs; each hug filled with love and meaning, remembered always. What a beautiful gift to share with each other and the world: love ❤️

 

 

 

CYNTHIA CARLA has a deep respect for all life, and the unified love we all share with each other. Cynthia wrote The Who That I Am when she took time to sit with her inner light and allow the uniqueness that is within her to shine through.
 
Cynthia hopes this book will shine love and comfort into each soul (child and adult) who reads it. With a universal meaning of loving ourselves and each other, this book also comes with some verses that may have additional meanings.
 
Cynthia’s wish is that these pages become a fun and educational tool where we can discuss with each other the meaning behind the words. For example, what does it mean to feel “round” or “flat”? What emotions do you relate with these words? When would one feel these emotions and how can we support each other? It’s not just for young children. Sometimes even adults can learn a lot from simple questions like these. What a wonderful world we can share when we live with love and communication.
 
Cynthia lives alongside the ocean and her wildlife friends with her fun and loving fur-babies and husband. She sends all her love to each and every one of you! Shine bright, shine through, with love.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

I’m so happy you are here! I discovered my love for writing while healing from a health challenge. I started to write for the purpose of releasing deep emotional feelings but what started to happen afterwards still, to this day, blows me away! 

I began with documenting my journey of healing. By writing what I was feeling and going through it eventually led me to start to connect inwards. This inward exploration brought through new ways to write that I never thought I could do. I started to have vivid dreams that I turned into screenplays. I wrote all sorts of stories, poems, and song lyrics. And then I started to have phrases and stanzas pop into my mind randomly, which eventually turned into rhyming books. 

My healing journey has led me to finding my purpose; spreading love to the world through my words. I’m so grateful for the journey, it was so hard but so worth it! 
I’m so happy you have found my books and this page. I hope they bring you peace and joy. I hope you embrace and feel the love I wish to share through them. And I hope you share that love with everyone in your world, too 🙂

Sometimes the biggest ideas are best expressed in the sweetest of stories. This lovely picture-book encapsulates what it's like to understand and accept all aspects of who we are. We are many things, and have many thoughts and emotions and dreams - sometimes at the same time. No matter who we are, we are loved and accepted, and we are not alone. A beautiful read for all the little ones in your life.

I loved this little book. The message I explained to my daughter was always love the who that you are. You are unique and don't have to change to please someone else's expectations.

I love this book that merges individuality and oneness. My daughter and I enjoyed the rhymes and illustrations. The young elephant is also a cute main character and a favorite of ours. The book describes the like/dislikes, emotions, thoughts, and actions that make up the elephant's personality. I enjoyed the subject matter that points out that even though we are all individuals, there is still a "oneness" that connects us all. Recommend this book to age groups 6-10 who are learning about themselves, including their differences and similarities with others.

Colorful, sweet and engaging illustrations complement and enhance this heartfelt message in a rhyming book that's perfect for young readers! Building kids up and making them feel good about who they are is such an important message and 'The Who That I Am' does just that! With gently rhyming text gorgeous illustrations in every page, the main character (the purple elephant) joins with the reader and celebrates the possibilities, diversity and future all within a positive and uplifting book. Perfect for a read aloud or read alone for preschool through lower elementary-aged children!

Great book for social and emotional learning. The bright colors and fun pictures keep the kids focused and engaged, while the story tells us, it's okay to have different feelings and emotions and that we are all unique and beautiful.
