There are ten stories within my book, 'The Naturals': The Story of Cloudy, Snowy, Windy, Moony, Hailstones, Sunny, Rainbow, Rainy, Starry and Earth. To be read to 4-10 year olds so that they may feel the connection with our Natural World. Once they can feel that our Natural World is alive and compassionate and looking after us all, they will want to look after it. Here is a snippet from 'The Story of Starry':
'Gracie was no longer angry with Glitter Starry for waking her up. She was much more interested in finding out who all the other Starries were, and what they got up to at night. She wondered if they were all as naughty and mischievous as Glitter Starry, or if he was the worst! As she looked closely at them, she could see that they all had individual smiley faces - and personalities to match. They were so friendly, and funnily enough they all knew her name, and giggled 'hello' as she flew by!...
...Before she could finish her sentence, Gracie had been whisked off with Glitter Starry on the most magical roller-coaster ride of her entire life! They were propelled away faster than the speed of light, shooting this way and that way, in and out of the Starries making up the galaxy that is the Milky Way, and round and round the planets! Up and down, and from side to side they went. The roller-coaster ride seemed never-ending. Indeed, Gracie felt she could have stayed on that magical ride forever ... without even getting dizzy!
They then slowed right down to about a thousand miles an hour. Gracie's breath caught in her throat at what she saw. There were flashes of colour so magnificent, it was as if she had walked into a paint shop, and all the paint was being thrown up into the air all at the same time! Flashes of colour surrounded her, far more beautiful than the most beautiful firework display she had ever seen! 'That's the making of Rainbow!' Glitter Starry giggled...'
The Naturals, with all ten stories inside, is in hardback with 170 pages and includes more than 50 beautiful illustrations. There are thought-provoking questions at the end of each story, so children get to think for themselves about the possibility of a good intention and purpose behind the actions of our Natural World. My book is available in the US from Amazon.com for $18-£20. Please feel free to check out my website at www.thenaturals.co.uk
With happy thoughts and universal strength for those of us who need it on our magical ride of life today, Sharon xx
