What an incredible day Grace is about to have but is she really ready for it???

Grace finds out that she is relocating to a new school, which can be scary for any kid. She’s determined to find a way to never ever attend this new school! With a desk to lean on, staring out her bedroom window, she thinks and she thinks.

As the last incredible day of summer comes to an end and the first day at her new school approaches, Grace learns that perhaps there is more than just a desk to lean on.

David Valovcin’s inspiration and ideas came from watching his daughter, Grace, and how she goes about her day-to-day activities. She is truly the best gift David could ever wish for and absolutely loves being her Daddy.

David’s first book, A Desk to Lean On, took him on an exciting journey from the early phase of brainstorming through to final publication. It was definitely a wonderful feeling of accomplishment. Ever since that book was published, David is very excited to write more children’s books!


An adorable book with important message

An adorable book written obviously with much love. The words and illustrations convey the importance of reaching out and leaning on others as they have leaned on us in times of doubt and uncertainty.



Beautiful story of new horizons

A wonderful story of a young girl nervous to move on to a new experience and realizes that she is not alone and in fact has already helped others experiencing the same feelings. Share this with the young person in your life!
