Davis’ second children’s book, One Big Heart: A Celebration of Being More Alike Than Different, released in August, following up on the success of her award-winning picture book The World is Awake. Davis has appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America, The View, and other media outlets speaking out about the book and its inspirational message.
Set in a classroom, this book explores color, features, behavior, and varying abilities and personas of friends all around. “Children are sponges and they absorb so much more than we realize,” said Davis. “The earlier we help our children love themselves, and others, for who they are, the more they will see the similarities we all share.”
Inspired by her mother, Beverly Davis, who helped her develop a love of writing, Linsey worked on the book with her. “We all have traits that make us who we are,” Davis said. “I give my mother so much credit for helping me accept and appreciate uniqueness in others. Our hair, skin, eyes, and personalities are very different, but we have so much in common to celebrate. We’re curious, we love, we feel, we explore. These are what we should focus upon—what binds us together.”
