A Little Space For Me | Book Review

A Little Space For Me will enlighten children and relatable to parents. Personal space is such an amazing place to find for ourselves and this story allows young minds to explore and learn of it’s importance. Perfection!” – Momma Braga


Sometimes, when it’s…too loud, too crowded, too messy, too smelly, or for no reason at all, you might just need a little bit of space to feel like yourself again.

With clever, inventive art and universally relatable themes, A Little Space For Me is about the importance of mindfulness, understanding, and finding a moment of peace within a big, busy world.


A Little Space For Me  is absolute perfection! As a mom of an almost six-year-old, personal space has been extinct for years. To have a creative and clever story to read to bring up the concept of space is exactly the story that I have been waiting for. It is beautifully illustrated and the narrative is brilliant.

By the end of the story, a lightbulb went off in my very social butterfly daughter. “OH! Mommy when you say you need space, it means you need time to just think and relax.” YES! Now we are just working on finding our own personal spaces where we can learn, focus and just be one. 😉

The best part of this story is that it is open to interpretation and allows the reader to make their own connection to the story.

“A little space is important but I still like sharing my space with you mom.” – Nikki, Age 5

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this book 10 stars out of 5! It truly exceeded our expectations and took us out of this world; space. 😉
