And the fact that it comes from a 9-year old child allows my children to connect even more deeply with the message.”

Abigail’s book gives me hope that the younger generation is truly going to change the world.”

“From the perspective of an artist what I really love about Abigail’s work is that it is super creative, it’s super on point with the same psychology that I use as a grown-up moving through the world to empower myself and it’s absolutely adorable and enjoyable for a grown-up to read and it will probably be the best book that an adult could read to their child. I give this [book] 17 stars!”

-Brotha James, Pop Artist/Musician
