The Joy in You

We rated this book:


A mommy koala holds her little one close and shares words of comforting inspiration. She says, “In this wonderful world, you can do anything!” You can sing with all your might and dance to your own unique rhythm. You can paint with a perspective no one else possesses and wonder about miracles waiting to unfold. You can wander to places unknown and fly high into the mysterious skies. It’s only when you try that you unleash your full potential, and by discovering what you love, you will find joy, she says. She’ll be there with open arms when the tides flow in, threatening to cause destruction. She’ll never stop believing “in the wonder that is you.”

This is an adorable, sweet, and inspirational text that sends a vital message to young children: be your true self and search for happiness until you find it. Know that someone out there–whether it’s a parent, a friend, a teacher, or someone else of influence–loves and believes in you and will catch you if you fall. This is a perfect story to share with youth across the globe in classrooms and homes alike. They’ll cherish the precious watercolor illustrations of koalas sweeping across the pages with subtle vibrancy. Those who read at a second grade level will be able to read The Joy in You independently. The younger ones will be able to treasure the tale as a read-aloud.
