Child of Mine, Know This reviewed in Light of Consciousness magazine, Winter 2006
"A spiritual message from parent to child graces the pages of this tender yet powerful book: You are a brilliant light that has been shining since the beginning of time . . . We are both the light of God . . . We are here, together, to walk through this illusion in search of a grander reality . . . The text touches on who we really are, our possible past lives together, the present purpose of our lives and the inherent promises that parents and children make to each other on a soul level. This might seem lofty fare for a children's book, but the writing is heartfelt and simple and each page is lovingly illustrated with full color photographs that beautifully convey the text's feeling and meaning. The illustrations are standard size so that parents can cover them with photographs of their own children to personalize the book if they wish. A hallmark book in an age of emerging global consciousness."

Rebecca Whitecotton has created a whole new concept in children's books with an inspirational message that a parent can deliver in a uniquely personalized way with pictures of their own child and family. The inspirational message is stunningly illustrated with exquisite photographs that can stand alone or be easily replaced with your own photographs. The esteem-building power of this concept is immense when a child recognizes his or her own face in a book filled with love and blessings.
