Mirror Face Book

Mirror Face is a first of its kind picture book which teaches children that the truth of who they are can only be seen when looking at the mirror in their hearts. The book is written for children entering the stage of life in which they begin to gain a sense of "me" and start to develop feelings of self-esteem and self-worth.

We are excited to be able to offer the e-book for FREE. Click on the link below and use code HAWKSATHOME at checkout!
