“As an adopted child and a former foster and adoptive mother, Courtney’s beautiful book brought me to the most joyful tears! Little Spark of Life is an inspired reminder for children—and the child in each of us—that God created us for a distinct purpose, and that we are fearfully and wonderfully made.”

Diane Ferraro, CEO, Save the Storks

“Paraclete’s Little Spark of Life: A Celebration of Born and Pre-born Human Life by Courtney Siebring (out now) is a rhyming baby-on-the-way book promising ‘a biblical perspective and Christian worldview regarding when life begins,’ according to the publisher.”

Publishers Weekly

Little Spark of Life beautifully communicates the value of every life, no matter how small. This is a great resource for parents who want to help their children understand the valuable truth that every person is an image bearer of God and has dignity, value and worth.”

Lauren Green McAfee, Founder, Stand for Life & Author of Beyond Our Control

Little Spark of Life will help you explain the ongoing transformation of your baby in the womb. Kids will learn how every child bears the image of God from the moment of conception. They’ll see the growth milestones along the way – heartbeat, brain development, facial features and more. What a great resource to help siblings prepare for a new brother or sister!”

Jim Daly, President, Focus on the Family

“With endearing illustrations and lilting rhyme, Little Spark of Life by Courtney Siebring, is a beautiful introduction to the wonder and miracle of conception through birth through the lens of a mother conversing with her pre-school aged child as they expectantly await the birth of a new baby. It’s a lovely introduction and reminder of the sanctity of life.”

Laura Sassi, author of multiple books for young children including the My Tender Heart series, Goodnight Ark and more

“This book is a reminder to us all–young and old–that we are uniquely made in the image of God. Courtney has written a beautiful story that will inspire every little reader to know their identity in Christ and how much God loves them! Every child should have this book on their shelf!”

Amy Ford, President, Embrace Grace, and author of Help Her Be Brave

“What a joyful, kid-friendly introduction to how babies grow and develop before they’re born! Little Spark of Life gives lots for families to explore and celebrate—great for ‘sparking’ deeper conversations with curious kids.”

Valerie Ellis, children’s author and founder of Our Everyday Parables

Little Spark of Life has quickly become one of my children’s favorite books to pick up and read at bedtime. I personally love how it is a teaching tool but also shows them the value and dignity of God’s Creation in the womb.”

Abby Johnson, bestselling author of Unplanned; founder of And Then There Were None

“Ideal for the ‘bigs,’ the brothers and sisters who wait and wonder!”

National Catholic Register

“This book provides parents with a beautiful way of reminding their children that they are perfectly and divinely made and that their lives had purpose long before their first cry! May our children know that everyone’s life is a miracle from the very first spark!”

Kristan Hawkins, President, Students for Life

“With a perfect blend of science and heart, Little Sparks of Life is my go-to book to celebrate the uniqueness and distinctiveness of each child and every life. This book teaches children that their life is intentionally created with value, creativity and infinite worth. I want to buy this book for every expecting big brother and big sister I know.”

Esther Fleece, bestselling author of No More Faking Fine and Your New Name

Little Spark of Life is the delightful story of a mother telling her son about his unborn sister’s development. Colorful, imaginative illustrations bring the mother’s descriptions of growth in the womb to life. This charming book is a perfect way to introduce the pro-life message to a young child—I look forward to sharing it with my own children!”

Emily Yocum, Executive Direction, Orthodox Christians for Life

“A sweet rhyming read-aloud to help young children appreciate the hidden development of the child in the womb, emphasizing that it was all designed by God.”

Barb Szyszkiewicz, Editor, CatholicMom.com

“A wonderful little book full of beautiful illustrations which will go a long way to foster a culture of life among our children.”

Eilís Mulroy, Pro Life Campaign (Ireland)

“As the leaves take on bold colors before falling from the trees, we’re reminded of life’s passing beauty, but also await the hope of new life that each Spring brings. Little Spark of Life is a new pro-life children’s book that captures the wonder of that profound miracle. This heartwarming story provides vibrant illustrations of a father and mother walking their child through the pregnancy of their preborn sibling. Balancing whimsy with scientific facts, this book thoroughly details the many milestones achieved during the weeks of pregnancy–from cells dividing, to perceiving light and sound. This is a must-have-read for parents and children, whether welcoming a new sibling or just wanting to explore the beauty of life in the womb!”
