I didn’t grow up doing outdoor activities and never read any books about winter. Since I have become a mom, I have been on an adventure every day with my daughter. I have learned to embrace every season. It was vital for me to change how I view things in life. I want to give my daughter life experiences and let her explore the outdoors without fear. But there is only one way to do that.. let her be around people doing extraordinary things, and she needs to read books that inspire her.
After witnessing Emily Ford make history in the winter of 2021, I wrote another children’s picture: I am Emily. It is based on a true story. I wanted to tell the story so my daughter could understand Emily’s accomplishment. I also wanted to inspire all children of color never to let anything hold them from exploring the outdoors.
Emily’s goal is to let everyone know that all are welcome outdoors.
I am Emily’s book for ages 3-8.
It is available in three formats: ebook, Paperback, and Hardcover. If you want your local bookstore or library to carry this title, please spread the word; you only need to give them the ISBN.
No one should ever feel that nature wasn’t meant for them – Emily Ford.
This book will make a wonderful gift this Christmas.
