They will also be guided to enhance their self-belief after reading this book, which will give them comfort and peace throughout their lives, especially when they are going through hard times. The discovery by the little girl of 'My Spirit' - which resides inside everyone - takes readers on a journey where they understand more about their inner selves and build up their self confidence whenever they feel low.
The spiritual vibe resonates well with readers and the author's simple story and narration help them understand the concept of 'spirit' that is in everyone. The illustrations are bright and colorful and make the concept clear and the scenes more vivid. The question and answer format of writing makes it easy for readers to comprehend the concept of 'spirit' and color themselves with the color of the 'spirit.' The book is a good bedtime storybook and can also be used in classrooms and school libraries for read aloud sessions. This is a lovely journey for all readers who need guidance to embrace them and help them find themselves when they feel alone.
