THIS IS AN ADVANCE READER COPY
The World Small was born as a poem and remains so in this newly minted Book Two of Kelly Anne Manuel's Essentials Series.
In this story, the Child is invited to experience their sleep time ritual with the comfort of Nature nearby.
It is a remarkable combination of relaxation yet imagination igniting prose. The World Small offers a standing invitation to the Child. The Child will learn that no matter where they are on the planet, Nature has common elements.
She is always available for discovery and wonder. In the story Nature is personified as a unifying presence to our planet. The simple words take on new meaning as the illustrations pair perfectly with their presentation. The illustrations spark curiosity as they start with a map and end with the evening sky.
The story identifies common elements such as the sky, sun, clouds and rainbows, to create continuity for any number of environments. Children who begin their sleep time ritual with "The World Small" will benefit from the rhythm of the words and the message they send.
The message that how Children play and enjoy the world around them no matter their geographic location is designed to awaken curiosity and stimulate conversations on the topic. It is in Early Childhood that a Child's view of the world and their place in it is under major construction.
The World Small is a tool in a Caregiver's toolbox to assist with that healthy formation. The idea that we are united as a global community with elements of Nature and human nature is an important message that the author feels Children's literature must reflect.
The Child who reads this book will be rewarded with unlimited travels into imagination and how they would like to play once they arrive there.
