Hi! Birdy here. Well first of all, space is rad. Second of all, my husband has worked in the aerospace and space world for years. If you look closely, you'll see this rocket ship is flown by Captain Skeeter - Skeeter was my husband's childhood nickname from his Dad. When I first started my journey of writing this book, he told me that if this book only ended up in our son's hands, and he was my only customer, that would be enough. He is my biggest fan and I wanted to include a nod to him to let him know I feel the same.
Also, for me, the idea of space is just one more realm for our imagination to roam in. Anywhere that can help produce some amazing daydreams is good in my book. I love love love to daydream. Furthermore, encouraging exploration in general and supporting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) opportunities is important to my family. We've been including our children in building their toys and furniture since the moment they could even just help us turn a screwdriver.
A portion of proceeds from every sale of The Day of You and Me will be donated to the Smithsonian Science Education Center (SSEC) - 'the SSEC is working to break down barriers to science so that all students - regardless of gender, geography, race, native language, ability, or socio-economic status - are engaged and challenged in school and equipped to be scientifically literate global citizens who can innovate, compete, and thrive in a world of unprecedented scientific and technological change.'
Go exploring. Tinker. Take something apart. Daydream any chance you get.
The smallest seeming things in life are often the biggest, so live with your eyes and hearts wide open!
