About The Book

A story about a mother and child presented in both English and Spanish that affirms how radiant and wonderful we all are.



In Say It With Me (Dilo conmigo), a heartwarming dual-language picture book for children ages 4-8, a child repeats their mama’s inspiring messages and makes her words their own.

Following words written by Ecuadorian-American elementary school educator and meditation guide Nancy S. Torres and set to gorgeous illustrations by Zoey Black, young readers will learn the power of speaking kindly about themselves and how good it feels to share a love for yourself with others.

The Perfect Gift for Grownups, New Parents, and Little Ones Alike

From their smile, to their skin, to their beautiful brains, Say It With Me (Dilo conmigo) teaches young readers and their grownups how to recognize what makes them remarkable — and the significance of being the person who helps them see.

Gift this book to a loved one (or yourself) and start a brand new and loving ritual that will be passed down for generations.
