Definitely one of its kind. I have been looking for books to read to my nephew. He's 4 years old and I wanted him to cultivate the habit of reading rather than wasting away his time on ipads or television. I do know a bit about the mantra "OM". This book did shine light upon the mantra and was also easy for the child to understand. I'm glad to have read this book.
I thank NetGalley for providing me with this eARC in exchange for an honest review.
Finding Om by Rashmi S. Bismark is an exceptionally thoughtful book for children. The short book and the protagonist Anu are just too cute. Anu finds her grandfather chanting 'Om' one day and persisits on knowing what is its significance.
Slowly, we find how Anu finds peace, love and kindness in her heart throught two little syllables.
The book, its story and the illustrations are all up to the mark. Learning, compassion and meaning, all needs to be inculcated am9ng children young at age and reading them these kind of books will certainly lead to a better future.
Though the book may require a little bit of explaining for some children, I would surely recommend it for every child.
I totally love this picture book!
The illustration is so vivid and accurate.
The characters stand out and the writing is so simple, exact and appropriate for the targeted age group.
The book serves its purpose to educate kids about the importance of meditation through simple steps and tips to have an understanding of the word 'Om', the meaning behind it and it's objective.
Even adults will find this amazing book useful while reading it to the kids!
Thank you #NetGalley for the copy of #FindingOm
