April’s Magical World and Her Joy for Living Slow (Large Edition)
A celebration for slow-paced living, April’s Magical World introduces us to a joyful childhood filled with play in nature, a free and wild imagination, and interconnectedness to all living beings.
Featuring a handy set of ideas to play and have fun outdoors.
April’s Magical World is the first in a series of picture books to bring to life all the creativity that came during dinner table conversations with Abril, the 5-year-old girl who inspired these stories.
This book, and those which are to follow, speak about the blessings of a slow-paced childhood, where just BEING in the present moment is a lesson that children can teach their parents. Moments such as stopping on the way to school to pick up a stone that looks like a dinosaur egg, or feeling free and safe to play outside, exploring, discovering, learning at every step of the journey. Feeling loved and accepted when speaking about imaginary friends, making mistakes without feeling judged, making art or song, playing till the end of the day and appreciating nature. These are just some of the things that make a child’s heart sing with happiness.
