Children and YA Writers Talk Podcast

Wilhelmina’s Wish

About Wilhelmina’s Wish: Fly along with Wilhelmina, a fairy with a unique unibrow. She wants to change the way she looks, but it’s not that easy. In this meaningful poetic story, your child will learn that one of the most important things in life is to be grateful with what you’ve got.

In a conversation on Writers Talk with host Jerry Fabyanic, Lisa discusses the profound life lessons that can be learned by both children and adults about self-acceptance and self-image by reading Wilhelmina’s Wish . She talks about how the “hidden people” like fairies help children understand how to solve problems, what does Wilhelmina have to say about being grateful, and that we don’t see ourselves as others see us.

Lisa explains how it’s important for people, especially children, to be comfortable in their own skin, that other people’s opinions shouldn’t dictate how you perceive your own beauty. She says that is why Wilhelmina came to life: To help children identify with their own beauty both inside and out.
