My name is Mrs. D. and I am an author of children's books. Currently, I’m juggling many projects including several new books. I love to write. I love this beautiful language. I write because I have something to share. I write because maybe someday, someone in this world may need my experience. I write for one simple reason. I love how it makes me feel: free.

Parents who want to make the most of storytelling activities with their children should focus on looking for books and stories that have meaning and valuable lessons. The Trees Have Hearts, a colorful, heartwarming book, will not only capture a child’s imagination but also teach the true meaning of friendship and acceptance.
The story revolves around a young girl who moves to America. Unable to speak a new language, she tries to make new friends. Rejected by other children, the little girl feels sad and lonely. She lives in an old house with a small garden, where three garden trees and the mysterious wind become her first imaginary friends. Through the story, the garden friends develop a wonderful friendship with the growing girl, while teaching her how to make real friends and appreciate the beauty of nature. They help her to overcome her fears and worries and open a beautiful imaginary world. Readers are invited to share in the young girl’s fears, tears, and joys as she copes with difficult moments while adapting to her new home.
Poignant and imaginative, The Trees Have Hearts is beautifully illustrated by Juli Hasegawa. This story will easily find a spot in the reader’s heart. The rich storytelling and unforgettable characters add flavor to an already delightful story line. This book will open a surprising imaginary world as seen through the eyes of a child…
Olga D’Agostino was born in West Ukraine, where she finished business college and worked in the food industry. She immigrated to the USA with her two small daughters and for years worked in her own business. A nature and animal lover, she loves discovering new things about the world. She speaks several languages fluently, but never attempted writing in English. With the help of her husband and daughters, she overcame her fears and started writing children’s stories in English. Carlo the Mouse on Vacation was her first published book. A full series of books on “Carlo The Mouse” will follow shortly. She has a wonderful bond with her unpredictable cat, Nyda, whose actions taught her many survival skills and inspired her to write more children’s books. All her stories are fun to read. They have valuable lessons about the importance of family, friendship, love, self-acceptance, and new discoveries. She plans to publish these stories in the near future.
