A difficult way to view the world, through the eyes of two young children coping with dysfunctional families and wilderness.
on May 23, 2013
This review is for the Kindle edition ebook.
The world through the eyes of two six-year-olds, mostly.
This is the story of how two young children see the Alaska wilderness, while trying to cope with their parents.
The children in this story come from dysfunctional homes. Both are very young, and must learn to cope with parents not quite ready to handle raising children. While most of the story is as seen by young children, some of the words and descriptions seem way beyond their years.
The author is trying to help us view the world around us. For the most part, I think the characters in this story are too young for most adults to appreciate the beauty they see. Children view their world through rose colored glasses, and try to always see the good in everything and everyone. Most of the adults I know can not quite see that direction, and have difficulty when the children try to explain their views.
I really want to recommend this book to parents of young children, and grandparents of those young children. Take the time to see what the children see, and think about how they express themselves. This is not a simple book to read, as it seems at first.
