Ayomide’s Train Ride to Graceland was inspired by the author’s personal experience with a miscarriage and then preterm infant loss before the birth of her two children. She wanted to write a story that would celebrate rainbow babies, while honoring the angel babies that came before them. The hope is that after reading Ayomide’s Train Ride to Graceland, families can use the book to start the conversation about pregnancy loss with their children. This beautifully illustrated book celebrates life while also honoring loved ones gone too soon.
Ayomide’s Train Ride to Graceland centers on Ayomide meeting his sister Grace for the first time during a trip to Graceland. They share a love of trains and he learns that she has been his guardian angel along.
Ideal for a bedtime story, as a gift for baby showers, new parents expecting a rainbow baby, or parents of young children.
