The Glass Child
The Glass Child tells the story of a rainbow child, full of colour and excitement. She has worlds within her mind and spreads her joy with others through speaking these stories to life. When the rainbow child was born, her family was enamoured with her colour. But as she grew, her parents found her colour to be a distraction. They sought to reduce her brightness, and as a result, she learned to silence her voice. The more the child's voice was silenced, the more she disappeared, until one day, she had faded into glass.

The Glass Child is a book about the impact our words have on the people we love and those who love us in return.

About the Author

A neurodiverse educator, from Toronto, Ontario, The Glass Child is Fabel Smythe's debut publication. This book was born from a collection of experiences, including those of Fabel's own childhood and those of the interactions she has witnessed in her field of work. Fabel's goal behind writing The Glass Child was to recognize the unseen wounds that many invisible children suffer and to create a space in which neurodiverse children may feel seen and heard.

The Glass Child is the first in The Child series. To keep up with Fabel's latest publications, visit her website at www.fabelsmythe.com
