Children often wonder where they came from, or if they existed before they were babies. The children’s book, The Day I Lost My Wings, written by Litzi Y. Umana, answers those questions in a most delightful way. Mochie was a beautiful angel with wings who lived among the stars. She spent her days playing and jumping among the clouds. The stars taught her about humans, and Mochie was given a powerful magnifying glass. She was able to see everything on earth including people, animals, forests, oceans and other wonderful scenes. A strong desire grew within her to live on earth and become part of a family. However, as long as she had wings she would be invisible to humans. She had to connect her heart to someone who had the same kind of love she did. The miracle finally happened one day and she became the newest member of a family.
This book presents a creative, magical way to describe life before earthly life. The beautiful illustrations of the heavens and the earth will further ignite a child’s imagination. The story flows smoothly as the angel transforms into a newborn baby. Mochie’s character depicts a determined, resilient little girl who never gives up on her dreams. There are many topics where parents can ask questions and begin discussions with a child. Author Litzi Y. Umana has written a captivating children’s book in The Day I Lost My Wings. This book will be read over and over again, as children continue to wonder about their earliest beginnings.
