I found no errors in the text.
The language flowed nicely with a gentle rhythm and a pleasing tone which lent an atmosphere of ancient legend. It had a suitable simplicity and directness with no unnecessary words. There was no over-use of modifiers and sentence structure was clean. The imagery made sense and the storyline worked.
I appreciated the use of the term "Great Spirit" It is a generic term to cover any religious affiliations without giving offence. It also beautifully evokes power, compassion, hope and divinity.
The illustrations may have seemed a little wooden at first, but the story is more important and if this is to be a kindle file they need to work well in greyscale and these seem to manage that quite well. They work fine in portrait orientation which is the default as far as I know. They are author generated which gives them good sympathy with the text. It is an important advantage that in this story, the text stands alone and does not depend on the illustrations. Therefore it would still work if the teacher were required to read it straight from his kindle to the class without the children seeing the illustrations at all.
I would definitely read this to my grandchildren. In fact I intend to, as soon as my little baby grand-daughter is old enough. I think it is suitable to read to children from as young as five, right through to almost teenagers who would still see the relevance of the message. This story is worded for the very young but it carries a mature message, which could be considered more deeply by older children too.
I've happily given it five stars.
This is a short story, not a novel, and is a story of where we came from, who we are, and where we might wish to go.
I wish Ms. Hallaj great success with her little story, and hope it becomes a hard copy book in time for the Winter Gift Giving Season.
