“The chorus of the book is, ‘When I leave for work, you may think I’m not around. But if you look closely, you’ll see I can be found,'” she said. “‘Traces of magic here and there show that we’re an inseparable pair. Always with you, always with me, mommy and child, together we’ll be.'”

“I just wanted to make Titan proud,” she shared. Rowland recalled how she noticed the kids catching on to the chorus as they went through the book.
“Oh my gosh, my heart was just bursting,” she said. “And then, the final day, they said it out loud, and I was like, ‘Thank y’all for having me!’ I was so happy.”
