Book Reviews

I am ecstatic about the reactions of Galaxy’s Whale and I Love Pink! Keep the videos coming! Your feedback and love of the books has been the BEST!

Proof that nothing is too complex for children! Kids are loving Galaxy’s Whale and the emotional intelligence and empathy it teaches. Creating a new genre of children books to help children to “Always Speak Your Truth!”

My son, Neelan, adored reading Galaxy’s Whale and right after we finished reading it, I recorded what he thought of it 💖

“I enjoyed this book so much. It took me back to the days when I was reading stories to my kids. The pictures are wonderful and filled with colorful adventures. The message is so what we need to hear today. I hope everyone has a chance to enjoy this exciting journey. More books please. Your talent is what the world needs.”

“I love the unique take on the fairytale. The story is real and also imaginative and fantastic. It’s a compelling story with a nice message. I think what I like about it is how she transforms through the journey of self-discovery and comes to see her family in a different light. The messages are embedded in the story in a way that is digestible for kids/teens and doesn’t feel like a moral lesson handed down from adults.”

Here’s Galaxy’s Kid Raven! She’s had “Galaxy’s Whale” less than a week and she’s read all SEVEN chapters twice! I’m so glad you enjoy the book Raven!

It is quite realistic that the characters in Safiya’s real world are not particularly conscious of their internal conflicts – they are just acting them out. It is only Safiya’s courage to speak about her feelings that helps her family evolve as well. Their ‘happily ever after’ does not come about through an external force stepping in, nor a heroic battle with monsters, but rather through one young girl’s courage to face her fears and speak her truth.”
