shannon dobbinMy six year old daughter loved this story and she loved Phoebe! As soon as we were done reading she grabbed our camera and ran outside to “chase the sun.” She said she wanted “to be just like Phoebe!” Shannon Dobbin


jen-hoffman-2“I am always on the lookout for books that encourage young artists. And this book does that beautifully. But it’s not just a story about a child creating. This story is also about the power we have to impact the world around us with our artistic expressions. Love love love it! We will be re-reading this book over and over.” Jen Hoffman

joanna wright“A one of a kind book! As a photographer, it’s rare to not only find a book to read to my own children about how children can fall in love with photography, but one that is written so incredibly well! My kids (age 8 and 5) LOVED this book, as did I! I can’t wait to read the next Phoebe the Photographer!” Joanna Wright
