5.0 out of 5 stars A book with beautiful beautiful wisdom about life
By Amazon Customer on September 17, 2020
I was recommended this book by my friend, and it blows my mind away with the beautiful messages. It shows how to positively reframe things in life that we often feel anxious about. The illustration style is fantastical and warm. I love that I can teach my daughter how to appreciate life for what it is, not what it should be. The book is equally inspiring and even therapeutic to adults. I could read this everyday and just feel calmer and more mindful. High recommend this book for little ones, and adults who want to re-embrace the beauty of living.
