Everybody Loves Hazel

Everybody Loves Hazel

New author Carla Komar is promoting positivity and friendship in her release of children’s book, “Everybody Loves Hazel”.

This New Jersey native encourages happiness and the joy of helping others to young children through a lovable chick named Hazel. She sat down and chatted with #HipNJ‘s Lisa Marie Latino about her book and unique home design.

Carla’s daughter Charlie, along with some of her friends, kicked off the segment with a very important question, “What does love mean to you?” Charlie gave the very special response of, “When my mom comes home from work, I give her a big hug!” Clearly positive vibes run in this family.

Carla’s cute chick Hazel believes in happiness, hope, peace, trust, friends, and love. The story focuses on Hazel’s trip into town to pick up her pink birthday cake, where she meets some friends along the way. As readers follow Hazel’s journey, they learn that helping others makes every day a brighter, happier one!

The character of Hazel stemmed from a children’s accessory line created by Carla. The six meanings of Hazel are represented by different fun, colorful bracelets. Not only are these bracelets cute and fashionable, they are a reminder that a little kindness goes a long way.

Carla’s home is just as colorful as her book and bracelets. Carla’s background in children’s apparel brought her all around the world, and she has brought a piece from each journey into her home. This eclectic home décor speaks to the creativity that blossoms in the Komar household!

Whether you’re an up-and-coming author or just need a little dose of positivity, this is a must-see segment!
