What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

You are strong. You are brave. You are so incredibly good. On an ordinary night in an ordinary house, a father’s ordinary words do something extraordinary. Lulled to sleep by these whispered affirmations, his baby girl grows into a fun-loving child, a confident teen, and then a courageous young woman. As she ventures forth into the world on her own, her father’s affectionate affirmations–now carried in memory–bolster her through life’s challenges and, like whispers on the night wind, come full circle to strengthen her aging father and young son of her own. With breathtaking illustrations from Spanish artist Dani Torrent, Goodnight Whispers is a heartwarming story about a father’s love and the power of affirmation.

Who Wrote Goodnight Whispers

Michael Leannah
Verified creative

I am a former elementary school teacher, a father and grandfather, and a writer. Goodnight Whispers is my second children’s book. My first, Most People, came out last year and won the Moonbeam Award for Peacemaking. Two more picture books are coming in 2019. I live in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, with my wife, Geralyn, and my dog, Tonto. I keep a guitar next to me at my desk. When I need to take a break from my writing, I play a song or two. Then it’s time to go back to work.
