The Hand Hug

The Hand Hug is a sweet story about Baelor, a little girl who is experiencing worrisome thoughts and doesn't know how to transform them. She is starting a new school and feeling anxious about whether she will be liked and make new friends. Then she's introduced to The Hand Hug which changes her focus and transforms her day!

Inspired By

Baelor is the name of Niki's new granddaughter born on August 12, 2019. She is inspired to write a series of children's books in her name.  As a child, Niki struggled with negative thoughts and she wants to provide young children with strategies to support them in embracing a healthy mindset!  Niki believes that a positive life begins with a positive mind!
