Have you ever had a children’s book speak to you deeply? One where the illustrations and message grab you and immediately you want to put that book into the hands of everyone you know?
That’s this book for us.
The first time I saw the cover I immediately knew it was that type of book and so when Compendium offered to send one I over I was thrilled.
“Your life is yours” it begins. If that was all of the message, mixed with the illustrations that would be enough for me to love it forever, but there was more.
“Wherever you go, take your hopes, pack your dreams and never forget – it is on journeys that discoveries are made”.
“Do everything with love. Follow your heart and see where it leads you.”
“Maybe you will speak up for those who can’t speak up for themselves.”
And of course because this book melds so seamlessly with the Montessori pedagogy it saves its most sage wisdom for last:
“You already have everything it takes to do big things.”
This book belongs in the hands of every child and most likely a great many adults.
This the perfect gift for new babies, children facing life changes and should be on every Montessori school’s bookshelf’s under the category of Peace Education.
