Gather for Story Time: Mommy Loves My Little Toes by Dr. Sakesha Yolonda Caston

Dr. Caston showcasing her book at a mall event

Sakesha Yolonda Caston, OD, knew she wanted to be an optometrist and help people see as early as in the seventh grade. Dr. Caston works with the National Board of Examiners in Optometry in examination development and administration. She also practices in various locations in South Carolina and is an optometrist for National Vision.

While her career is important, Dr. Caston says that her role as a mom always comes first. She became a mom to son Jesiah in 2006. He is in the inspiration behind her children’s book, Mommy Loves My Little Toes, which was published in 2020. Dr. Caston says that she is thankful to her own mother who helped her navigate those early days of learning to be a new mother. It was her advice at one of Jesiah’s first bath times—”Make sure you wash in between his toes”—that led to the title of this special book.
