Now Available!


A grandfather shares stories of his life’s challenges with his grandson to teach him to have courage and confidence. At the end of each story, he tells his grandson, “El sol no se tapa con un dedo.”

This is the story of a young boy who deals with the harshness of criticism associated with a talent he knows he has through several stages of his life.

It is also a story of how those we love can influence our lives and how the strength they have provided can continue to live on from generation to generation.

Coffee and Cedar is a story that both adults and children can appreciate and enjoy over and over again.

About the Illustrator

Mike Woodcock is a full-time award-winning illustrator and graphic designer living in Orlando, Florida. A native of Georgia, he traveled south to Sarasota to earn his degree from the Ringling School of Art and Design and to work for the Mouse during his summers. He settled in Orlando, where he met his beautiful wife, and they now spend most of their time between chasing their first child everywhere her little legs will carry her and trying to draw and paint everything in between. He hopes his love for illustrations and exploring books through pictures and words will mean more to his daughter as she grows up (but not too fast).
