The Secret Treasure: A Wise Baby Book is an inspirational children's picture book written by Mark Schustrin and illustrated by Andrea Lucci. The story is about kids looking for a special treasure that they do not know is hidden in plain sight. They search high and low for it. They take a plane, fly over the hills, go into the deepest mine, and still do not find the treasure. Is the treasure gold or diamonds? No, because it is better than any precious metal. It is more valuable than all the money in the bank. You can collect jewels from crowns, but it still is more precious than all of them. What is this treasure and where can you find it?
The Secret Treasure is part of a series that aims to raise children's confidence and remind them that they are all special. Mark Schustrin uses fun rhyming words to deliver the story. The book does not contain many words, but it has beautiful images working in its favor. Children will love the bright colors and relatable pictures of kids searching for things in random places. Andrea Lucci has also hidden a lotus flower on every page, making it a search book, which is a fun activity you can enjoy with your kids while reading the story. I loved that the author used a lotus flower because it is a symbol of overcoming obstacles in life. Read this book today and bloom with confidence like a lotus.
