“Everyday Magic”
Coloring Book

Featuring the Project: Bright Lights
Nominees and magical words from their tributes

Bright Lights nominations were collected online through Monday, June 21, 2021. All nominees received a certificate and special thank you, and are featured in the first annual Bright Lights coloring book: “EVERYDAY MAGIC.”

When an adult makes a child feel safe and secure in different situations the result is magic!

Helping a child regulate their emotions, allowing a safe space for them to express feelings and an ability to model behavior is something that enables a child to thrive in the most challenging situations. Through the pages of this coloring book, we share ways every day bright lights create magic in the world of children and recognize the Project Bright Lights nominees from 2021.


The coloring book content was developed with the support of child development experts and is illustrated by artist Lisa Marie Lyckland, whose simple, yet genuine style has made her a popular commissioned artist for capturing everyday life. It was distributed to 1,000 young children in childcare centers, preschools, healthcare clinics, hospitals, and home visit settings in New York State.
