This is a timely book for young readers that addresses the insecurities of many youngsters today, especially those with emotional or physical challenges, in an upbeat and positive way.
The main message is that every child, no matter how insignificant or misunderstood they may feel, has a special gift to give – both to themselves and to the world. With whimsical illustrations and uplifting prose, the book provides a guidebook to finding that spark inside that makes us special.
This is the first time I’ve picked up a children’s picture book for review, and what a good decision it has been!
Each page has beautiful illustrations showcasing a diverse group of children.
The accompanying text has a pleasing and legible font, and it does not overwhelm the page–just about 2-4 lines concisely describing one thought.
The book begins with a call to understand that everyone has a different gift and goes on to give actionable tips to the child to help him/her discover that gift. Once the “superpower” is discovered, the child is guided as to how he/she can work on developing it.
Respecting each other’s differences is given importance. I can imagine children poring over the pictures and thinking about the words.
A very happy, colorful, and inspiring picture book!
