You know how in the new Cinderella movie, Ella always says “Have courage, Be kind” over and over, as a reminder from her mother? That’s exactly how Starlight & Sunny books are!
The book is actually the author’s voice as a mom, sharing the situations and events in her and her children's life. The characters are her beautiful girls. It’s a pretty cool way to immortalize your unconditional love for your children & the lessons you would want to teach them. All the while, sharing it with the world & unintentionally leaving a legacy.
It’s actually a brilliant idea and quite an admirable one. Not everyone has the guts to create her own book just to be able to leave something for her kids when she's gone. It’s very personal, relatable & real.
You might be wondering--who in the world is Starlight & Sunny? Well, Starlight & Sunny are two joyful & adventurous sisters, who go wherever their imagination takes them. During these adventures, they learn something that will stay with them forever.
There are a lot of children’s books out there, created to entertain children visually or verbally, but they don’t really touch base. The Adventures of Starlight & Sunny Series is not your average children’s book.
More than illustrations or stories, it’s a life hack meant to guide children (even adults!) on how to positively and consciously live. Through wonderful illustrations & poem style story-telling, it teaches the greatest values & skills every kid and person should know--- courage, kindness, compassion, patience, respect, empathy, independence, love. I could list all the positive adjectives this book promotes, but I might run out of time. That’s how awesome it is.
The first book in the series, The Princess Path, is generally about going on an adventure to finding happiness and doing good deeds along the way. It encourages kids to be big-hearted & not selfish, to help others and find inner beauty, because it will go a long way.
The words are simple, and easy to understand, but they speak to the adult or parent. These books provide the perfect platform for communication to start between the parent and the child. In many cases, the parent will compare the situation in the book to their life, and this is where the parent and child bond will strengthen. It definitely tickles the heart.
Such a fun way to mold the future generation and there is 5 more books in the series! Remember, this is more than just a book, it is a product, made of love, to spread more love! You should grab your copies while they last!
