Grown-Up Nonfiction 


Perfect for Father’s Day, graduation, and for readers of any age who appreciate heartfelt advice beautifully presented.


For her entire childhood, Joanna’s father, an artist by training, had a morning ritual: wake up early, walk the dog, and sit down at the kitchen table with two blank sheets of paper and plenty of colored markers. On those pages, every morning, he would craft a note to young Joanna and her brother Theo.


Over the years, these beautifully illustrated and heartwarming notes morphed from word games and puzzles for five-year-olds to thoughtful guidance, advice, and reflections for teens approaching adulthood. Each morning, without fail, her father would have a note waiting for his two children.

Now, with over 3,000 of her father’s colorful, vibrant, touching notes in hand, Joanna has chosen the most poignant and collected them into this beautiful book.


With the illustrated notes throughout, the book is organized by themes such as Saying You’re Sorry, Love, Friendship, Teamwork, and more; these notes are full of messages we all need to hear. Her father’s sentiments are heartfelt and full of possibility for the future; any reader will find them applicable to his or her life.
