Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Lisa Humphrey was inspired to write A Mother’s Promise when her dear friend wondered whether the world was too scary for a new child. Lisa’'s stirring message of hope was so powerful it could not be tucked away out of sight, and instead graces us with a celebration of our undying spirits.

A graduate of Northwestern University with a Master’s degree from Cal State University Northridge, Lisa is a literacy coach in Los Angeles. She is an advocate for peace and women’s rights with interests in yoga, Buddhism and philosophy. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, knitting, and piano as well as spending time with her partner, Matthew, and her dog, Sierra.

David Danioth dedicated his first book, The Tree, to "All mothers—the givers and unconditional nurturers of life." So presented with the opportunity to illustrate A Mother’s Promise, how could he refuse? The poetry of Lisa Humphrey’'s words touched David’s soul and flowed through his brush onto the pages of this remarkable book, evoking the sacred nature within us all.

The Art Institute of Seattle is proud to include David on their faculty where he guides emerging artists toward their goals. When he’s not at school or in his own studio, David can most likely be spotted on a soccer field or the seat of a bicycle on the road somewhere.

By Huntress Reviews on July 16, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This is a beautifully written and lovingly illustrated book about the nurturing bond that develops between a mother and child. It is also a book filled with feelings of adoration, which lend themselves to the mystery of that special spirit known as life.
When I first noticed that David Danioth had illustrated this book, I knew right away that it would be beautifully done. Mr. Danioth's talent knows no bounds. Then, as I read A Mother's Promise, my heart was filled with a tenderness that is hard to explain. This feeling of sensitivity and softness was enhanced by the stunning illustrations, which were so realistic that I wanted to reach my fingers out to caress the baby's tiny face.
While preparing to bring new life into the world, mothers everywhere whisper promises to their unborn child. They know that the world can be a perilous place, with unknown terrors, but promises that come directly from an adoring heart become inspiring and hopeful messages of love.
*****This awe-inspiring book is guaranteed to stir memories in the heart of every mother, and will become a treasure that can be handed down to every child.*****

Format: Hardcover
"When you are born...I promise to help you remember all you have forgotten. I promise the ocean...you will hear the beating of its heart against the shores." In this lyrical language, A Mother's Promise reminds us of our connection to the earth and of its diverse beauty as a mother makes a series of promises to her unborn child. It also reminds us of our responsibility to the earth...to nurture, love, and take great care of it so that we and future generations can enjoy it. David Danioth's illustrations are soft and gentle and full of warmth and beauty. The images of the mother holding her newborn infant are especially stunning.

Format: Hardcover
This is a sweet picture book all about the special bond between a mother and a child. It tells of all the hopes and dreams that a mother has when she brings a child into the world. The book features a mother promising lots of things to her newborn child. She promises to love the child and respect him or her as well.

The illustrations were breathtaking and the babies featured in the book looked so sweet!

I would recommend this book for mothers and young children to read. It has a very positive message.
