The Bible for Kids Podcast

This week Amy and Mike talk with author Talitha Shipman about her new book Finding Beauty.

You are beautiful from the top of your head to the tip of your toes--but beauty is far more than something you can have. It's also something you have to find. In other people. In nature. In acts of kindness. In math, and art, and music, and sports.

In this beautiful inspirational book for girls, author-illustrator Talitha Shipman turns the concept of beauty inside out, transforming girls into beauty-seeking adventurers charging out into the world with confidence and ambition to find beauty and make beauty wherever they go.

Talitha Shipman is a picture book author and illustrator born and raised in Indiana. Her favorite subjects to paint are wild kids and wild animals. Nature inspires Talitha's painting, and she hopes her work encourages curiosity and creativity in children of all ages.

Talitha has worked with publishers large and small. Her books include the Sidney Taylor Honor recipient, Everybody Says Shalom by Leslie Kimmelman (Random House Books for Young Readers, 2015), an American Farm Bureau Recommended Read, Applesauce Day by Lisa Amstutz, (Albert Whitman, 2017), and most recently, a 2019 IPPY Silver Medalist, First Snow by Nancy Viau (Albert Whitman, 2018).

Talitha lives in Fort Wayne, Indiana with her husband and their five-year-old wild child, Coral.
