Shortly after the book – the tale about a boy who got scared and didn’t feel brave on Halloween night – was published, local mum Georgia reached out to the author with a touching story about how her son Jovie often repeated the story’s catchphrase ‘I’m Brave like Billy’ to help him through his medication and tests.
Georgia said: “The story really helped distract him from what was going on. The book is still one of Jovie’s favourites and we read it regularly. It couldn’t have come at a better time for us as a family.”
Said Traci: “I wrote this story for my own son Billy over ten years ago and to hear that the story has helped anotheer child cope with such a worrying ordeal is amazing and truly heartwarming.”
Thank you Georgia and Jovie for sharing your story. I’m thrilled he’s feeling better and still loving the book.
