"A rock…hit makes a tender love note from parent to child."—Kirkus Reviews

She's got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories…
The first and only picture-book interpretation of Guns N' Roses "Sweet Child O' Mine" lyrics, inspired by the adventures of Maya and Natalia Rose, two young girls who have grown up touring with the band!

With evocative, sweeping paintings from artist Jennifer Zivoin, Sweet Child O' Mine celebrates love and music, and how they bring us together in the sweetest ways.

  • Praise for Sweet Child o' Mine:
  • "A rock band's 1988 hit makes a tender love note from parent to child."
  • "Zivion's painted illustrations are colorful and upbeat, showing three people who are affectionate with each other and clearly enjoy being together."
