Melissa with LifeLines book

Melissa Bernstein, co-founder and chief creative officer of Melissa & Doug, has just released “LifeLines,” a hardcover, coffee-table quality book about her personal journey to find meaning and self-acceptance. 

“Thankfully, creativity saved me,” Melissa says. “This book is my symphony — a compilation of all my prose and verses from my entire life woven together, along with images of nature that have brought me such a profound sense of joy.”

For more than 30 years, Melissa has been on a mission to share the power of open-ended play and to ignite imagination and wonder in children so they could discover their passions and purpose. This book reminds readers that grown-ups, too, can benefit enormously from tapping into their own creativity.

Along with the publication of the book, Melissa plans to connect with readers to create a community where she can offer tools to support them in their journey to self-awareness and enlightenment.
