Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mikalatos exquisitely describes the powerful bond he shares with his three daughters in Sky Lantern. A lovely, beautiful book that reinforces the importance of exploring our own invisible thread connections, and how one simple act of kindness—one small gesture of caring—can change the lives of others forever.” Laura Schroff, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Sky Lantern reminds us that the smallest flame can brighten the deepest gloom. I loved it! It’s easy these days to feel disconnected from other people because we all have our problems. But when a sky lantern, in whatever form, appears to us with its message of need, this book tells us what to do: Reach out, give, love." Homer Hickam, #1 New York Times bestselling author
