Zigglebee Book: Hours of Coloring Fun
Written by Lana Bailey, age 7, during COVID, this book allows your child to illustrate the stories and use their imagination. Lana’s twin sister, Laila, lives with a disability that makes communication hard between them. Lana discovered that she can communicate with her sister through stories and pictures, which is why she published Zigglebee. She added the words, so your child can illustrate the pages. The identities of the characters in each story are just as your child imagines them to be. Written by a child for a child, for hours of creative play.
