Little Voice was written and illustrated by both Ottawa natives Amanda Bernardo and Samantha Clusiau-Lawlor. It is a story that offers an inspiring and encouraging message that focuses on the reader’s inner voice. This inner voice teaches children to be confident, creative, ambitious and proud of who they are.
The characters struggle with their doubts and fears, feeling alone, discouraged, uncertain and scared, but in listening to their little voice they are reminded of their intelligence, creativity, drive and inner strength. More importantly, their little voice motivates them to believe in themselves and to fulfill their dreams. Though intended for children between the ages of six and twelve, Little Voice is a story where every reader, young or old, can feel inspired by its positive, inspiring and motivating message.
Ultimately, Little Voice is a reminder of the voice each of us has within us but that we often times forget.
