Ava's Triumph
by Mary E. Miller and Linda Woo

Ava's Triumph is an engaging story of resilience and empathy. Ava's Triumph tell the story of a young artist overcoming an unfortunate mishap. Heartbroken, Ava pushes herself to overcome the setback with dignity and hard work. Ava's final painting is a triumph of her own, celebrated by the heart-warming support of her community. An exquisite and captivating artistic creation created by two Silicon Valley women as an iterative collaboration in material art, photography, technology, and story-telling to create a pro-social book for young children.  The intelligence, love, and thoughtfulness poured into this book radiates.
