"Everyone has a voice deep down inside them, a voice that says “shine”.
Some have loud voices, while some have quiet ones. Some people’s voice
is so quiet they never get to hear it, while those that do may choose not to
listen. Unfortunately, only a few decide to act on this voice, the stars
who influence others to listen themselves."Find your Little Voice
It is with great excitement and joy that we announce Little Voice as an approved resource/organization with the Ottawa Catholic School Board!
“As a graduate from Prince of Peace Elementary School and St. Patrick’s High School, I am overwhelmed with this opportunity to work with not only the schools I attended as a child/teen but now with my entire community! I am extremely grateful and cannot wait to share the message behind Little Voice, which I hope will inspire many more students!”
– Amanda Bernardo, Author
Little Voice will also be working this summer on a special project with the OCSB to continue to support schools and students in the upcoming school year! We can’t wait to share this project with all of you!
As an organization, Little Voice works rigorously within our communities to both inspire children and give back wherever possible. We are extremely proud of our Forget Me Not Project and the #30BooksFundraiser, both fundraising initiatives which have supported the Alzheimer Society of Canada and Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County, as well as having shared a love of reading with schools and local organizations.
We are more than just a book … we are a movement and now together with your help, we hope to grow to inspire many more hearts and support many more causes!
Today we celebrate the newest addition to the Little Voice family, our first ever Reading Companion!
Little Voice is very excited to announce our partnership with The Whimsical Tot, a small business run from home that is commited to bringing customers one of a kind quality handmade and custom cloth dolls!
Little Voice has certainly come a long way from its initial start as a poem on a mere scrap piece of paper. It was a story born out of the need to inspire and developed into an inspiration of its own.
As Little Voice has grown, so to has our journey. This all started as a project to publish a message but over the last few months, our message has transformed itself into a movement where acts of kindness, motivation and inspiration have touched not only our readers but both Samantha and I as well.
No words can express how it makes both Samantha and I feel to know that a child, teenager or adult were inspired or moved by what we have created. It is a reward like no other.
With your messages, you remind me personally of why I started Little Voice. I started writing this poem because I too, like many of you, needed to be inspired. I needed to start believing in myself and stop doubting my own dreams.
People always ask what age Little Voice is intended for, and most of the time I answer saying “between the ages of six and twelve”; but that, however, is in the context of our genre not necessarily our message.
Our message was born out of a time when I was 24 years old kicking myself to believe in my passion. It was born out of a need for inspiration that can touch any person, regardless of age. It will continue, I hope, with your support to find its way in the hearts and homes of all those who need reminding that they too can accomplish anything in life and that they too, regardless, should believe in themselves.
Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for your continued support. We would not be here today without you!

We also wanted to send a special thank you to Sylvie McEwen, a local French teacher, who has been passionately pushing for Little Voice’s translation since day one.

We are very excited for this next step in our journey and look forward to sharing with you ‘La Petite Voix’!
