Author, film producer and singer/songwriter, Jill Bugbee, enjoys being creative! Together with her husband, Eric, they authored the story of Fiver Finds Home, originally written as a feature film treatment. Having partnered on many creative endeavors over the years, they are passionate to bring uplifting content to audiences through the craft of storytelling. With their two children, Collin and Kayla, the family reside in the Northeast of the United States, and their love for exploration has lead to many fun and memorable adventures.

Jill's colorful character, Fiver, was inspired by a dream where she met him as she stepped into a quaint café. She marveled at a blue-colored, purple-spotted, 7-foot tall giraffe gliding gracefully across the restaurant -- grabbing menus, plates and setting tables for customers with his long neck, smooth agility, and incredible balance. Instinctively, Jill somehow knew his name was Fiver. As this magnificent creature approached her, Jill immediately fell in love with his big, kind eyes. He asked her the question, "5:15?" which was probably her reservation time, or perhaps something else to be revealed and discovered in the future.

When Jill awoke, she excitedly shared the dream with her family. They strongly believed this was a divine appointment, as God often speaks through dreams. Through Fiver's story, Jill and Eric hope that children and adults around the world will also be inspired by heavenly dreams, signs, and wonders that will lead them to many meaningful adventures of their own.

My Thoughts...

This is a great learning tool for our kinds. Not everyone looks the same, not every one is the same but we all need love.
This would be such a treat to read to your kids and open up dialogue for having that talk to our little ones  letting them know its okay to be different.
This is a cute 4 star read.
