Luna Lavender was not excited when her teacher Mrs. Wintershine announced they would be working in groups. Luna was put along with Claire, Maddie, and Aliyah whom she thought were the most beautiful girls in the class. Aaliyah had beautiful hair, Maddie had a wonderful smile, and Claire had the cutest freckles but Luna never considered herself to be pretty. She was wondering why she could not be pretty like the rest of them when she heard the voice of a stuffed owl asking her what was wrong. Luna picked up the stuffed owl from the bookshelf and hugged it tightly. The owl reassured her that she was pretty and told her that everyone had their own insecurities and were not confident as Luna. What lessons did the owl teach her? Would Luna be confident enough now to sit happily with her group?

Luna And The Magic Owl: Body Positive by Esther Pia Cordova is an adorable story that stresses the importance of self-love and self-acceptance. Mariya Elizarova's illustrations breathe life into the characters and give clarity to the concept with lively and colorful imagery. The story is a good way to help children understand they are all unique and it is these unique differences and small imperfections that make them the persons they are. It teaches children to look at inner beauty and appreciate it and also to encourage others to feel good about themselves by focusing on helping them to overcome their insecurities. The message through the story is profound and uplifting. Luna And The Magic Owl: Body Positive by Esther Pia Cordova is a good storybook for parents and tutors to read out loud to children and help them realize it is important to be beautiful inside and not just have a pretty appearance.
