What a treasure! Not only is the illustration work breathtakingly beautiful- what the book has to say is equally gorgeous. My 10 year old and I both loved it... and the prompts/ questions in the book led us into a wonderful mother/ daughter conversation. Will be buying more for Christmas presents!
Love, love, love Gifts of Spirit! It has gorgeous artwork and is a wonderful tool to connect with your children!!! We received it today and my 9 year old was immediately engaged! She read the book aloud to me and I have enjoyed listening to her answers to the questions! Highly recommended!!
Incredible artistry, fun font and brilliant colors fill this engaging book! Awesome gift not only for children but for teachers, parents and therapists. I will cherish my copy forever!
This is a great "thinking" book with gorgeous illustrations. My 4 year old daughter fancies herself an artist and she immediately commented on the artwork in the book. The book, at least for a small child, takes time to work through. It is not a typical storybook that you read straight through from beginning to end. Each page gives information about an animal, then has provocative questions at the bottom of the page to prompt conversation between the parent and child, or at least self-awareness with a child old enough to read it alone. The conversations it prompts are well worth the extra time it takes to work slowly through the book. It is a rare and special book that helps reveal how amazing the inner workings of a child's mind are. This one nails it.
I love my book by Artist Kimberly Heil. The artwork is delightful, whimsical, and tickles a smile out of your mouth. The messages of gifts, of recognizing and appreciating uniqueness, are perfect gentle prods for youngsters at heart to learn to reflect on their own gifts. I recommend this lovely book at as gift for any child and everyone who loves beauty, fancy, and connection.
