The Only Sun


Written and Narrated by Vera Jones


Sometimes life can feel sad and lonely. This can happen when we think of ourselves as being “different.” We all want to fit in somehow. In those lonely moments, it helps to have a voice, like a little bird, to remind us that we are special, beautiful and important. This book is that voice! It is a fun, poetic story starring the bright sun, a wise bird, and the trees, to help you feel good about being unique. Given as a gift, it is the perfect voice of encouragement for that special someone who may have lost his or her shine!

Vera Jones has written her first children’s book with a message of significance and purpose designed to last! May you always remember, “It’s alright to be bright!”
