Why a book about Nature Schools?

The inspiration for I Love Nature School comes from Kyla's experience teaching at various nature preschools around the US.


When looking for books about the first day of nature preschool, there were none to read to her students. Every book focused on indoor preschools and didn’t show the magic of learning outdoors.


Kyla decided to create a colorful story to introduce little ones, their parents, and teachers to the wonders of nature school and learning outside of four walls.

About the Book

On Brighter Days focuses on only children and their feelings about wanting a sibling but ultimately realizing how lucky they are to be in a small loving family. It is pretty universal that children ask for things they want but that may not be possible (a puppy, a new toy, or a sibling).


This book focuses on the importance of appreciating all the wonderful things that children have in their families, no matter the size.


On Brighter Days hopes to highlight the love of families with only children and share their stories! For Ages 3+

Paperback copies available now for $15!

Hardcopy available through Barnes and Noble.

"Every family is different and On Brighter Days is a beautiful portrait of what it can look like with one very loved child-even if that wasn't the plan initially."
-Jess Myhre, creator of Only You Podcast

The Impact of On Brighter Days

This book will hopefully fill in the void of books representing only children and their families. There are many families that have only children for a variety of reasons, either by choice or circumstance, and they take many forms - two parent families, single parents, gay families, and families of all colors


On Brighter Days shows this diversity since representation matters! All kids and families should see themselves in high quality children's literature. 

Help me spread the word and grow this body of children's literature!
