Ned: Who Am I Really? by Kristin Gattens and Nicole Regan is a children’s illustrated story about Ned, a boy who one day hears a voice in the wind. It comes seemingly from within and without, asking him a very important question: who is he? Is he just a body and a mind, or is there more to him? The thoughtful boy is perplexed and unsure, not fully understanding either the questions, or whether there is even an answer. He tries to figure out the answer for a while until he runs out of thoughts. But he has a plan to ask someone important to him: his friend, Nanny, who embraces the question with exuberance and excitement, not to mention support. She lovingly guides his thoughts to new discoveries—about his spirit and soul, helping him to realize that he is much more than what he can only see.

This is an amazing book, and I think it reaches out to older readers than are targeted by this book. All of us are on a journey in life to explore who we are, what our meaning is, and so forth. Some of us live a long time in this world and others do not. Everyone can benefit from the wisdom of this book, and more so those who struggle through each year they live here since it brings hope and focus. Ned: Who Am I Really? by Kristin Gattens and Nicole Regan is a colorful adventure for self-exploration and comes highly recommended. Outstanding work!
