"I Am Lilly" and "Penelope's Pearls" are a new dynamic duo of children's books, written by Annie Reiner.

Annie Reiner comes from a gold-medal show biz family. Her father, Carl Reiner, is a comedy legend.

She has the chops of a writer and artist, one who has chosen to devote her career to the care of her patients, as a psychoanalyst in private practice. A psychoanalyst whose focus is on early childhood.

Who better to write books for children?

It's a tragic fact that young children are often not loved in a deep way that stays with them forever.

Early childhood is a particularly vulnerable time when each child's view of her or himself is a tender seed, with the roots of a lifetime at stake.

What a wonderful advantage when a beautiful children's book appears to help the young child at these tender growing moments!

Both books, "I Am Lilly" and "Penelope's Pearls", are lean in length yet deep and resonant in their ability to communicate the often nonverbal longings of children.

What fun they are and how artfully presented.

Here we have an infusion of art and words woven with exquisite tenderness.

The voice of each book is the voice of an angel beckoning the child to come close enough to enter this most intimate conversation about having a true self.

Annie Reiner's visual art is as vivid and alive as her writing.

Shall I talk about the illustrations in her 2 new books for children? She could have an entire career as an illustrator.

No, I won't spoil that for you, the introduction to the twinkle dance of Annie's art.
