"How to Live" books

by Sandy Gingras

Sandy Gingras has a wonderful sensibility about living in harmony with our world — about happiness and what really matters — and this perspective is beautifully expressed in her illustrated books. Her work touches readers on many levels. With beaches and islands as metaphors, she offers a gentle message with wit, charm, and an almost fragile sensitivity.
