Sail is the perfect book for helping children embrace change in a positive way and see every situation, even the challenging ones, as an opportunity for growth.
Dorien Brouwers grew up in the Netherlands and is currently based in Suffolk, UK. She draws predominantly with watercolour, pen and ink developing a distinctive style rich in texture and detail. She started making picture books as a gift for her son.
Her new book Sail (Little, Brown Young Readers) is a metaphorical journey about having courage and taking risks, weathering the tides and storms of life’s challenges, and discovering new possibilities for one’s future. Out at sea anything can happen whether trials or triumphs, there are infinite possibilities to explore once we leave the shore. And what lies under the water’s surface, in the darkest depths, can often lead to the most beautiful discoveries.
With her gentle wisdom and dynamic art that will sweep you away, remarkable debut talent Dorien Brouwers beckons us to climb aboard and discover the courage, grit, and resilience that resides within us all. Ideal for all ages and filled with universal themes, the story also features a set of questions at the end that will invite parent-child conversations and encourage readers to explore their own life journeys.
