This book is a fillable baby book created to capture emotion-based thoughts, feelings and observations of the first year with your little one. Instead of tracking physical development milestones (crawled on _____ day etc), the intent is to create a lasting beautiful document of what you really want your child to know about the experience of being with them.

Growing Gratitude: A fillable journal to inspire a gratitude practice for children.
This sweet little journal is dedicated to encouraging a mindful practice of gratitude for children and those who support them. Each page was designed with prompts for children to quickly identify if they want to choose a person, place or thing to be grateful for. Developed by the designer after working with children of all abilities for over 15 years. This particular structure was proven to be the most effective in engagement and comprehension. This book has a back and white interior, includes 44 spaces to document gratitude, tips, an activity idea, instructions and steps to practice ‘feeling’ grateful as much as talking about it. Created with love and intention to focus on the things we are grateful for. Also provides brilliant insight to children’s thoughts, feelings and connection to their world.
To purchase please visit amazon and search ‘Tamara Hackett’.

Rainbow of Love (Coming 2019 – ish)
Rainbow of love is a story based on a conversation between myself and my (then) six year old son.
I was sat on the edge of the bathtub waiting for my boy to finish brushing his teeth before putting him to bed. He stopped. Mouth full of toothpaste and asked “Do you know what I love most about you?”. Incredibly curious (and honestly) I said “No, I actually don’t know”. Usually I would ask him to finish brushing his teeth to speak but I really wanted to know. Building suspense without even knowing it he decided to finish brushing, spit and rinse before answering. He very thoughtfully said ‘I love your rainbow of love’. I couldn’t speak. It sounded so beautiful. Because of my silence, I think my boy found the need to explain so he continued. “It’s like…Your kindness is the red. Your peace is the yellow. Your fun is the purple…”. I loved the way he explained how he felt about my love for him more than I could say. It made perfect sense to me. Once I got him tucked into bed I asked if he thought maybe we should write a book together about what he told me. So other kids could see the rainbow of love that they have in their life too. He wholeheartedly agreed – therefore…this book will be coming soon.
