Suzie Snowflake - a bookwrap

What a perfect day to be reviewing this book for you.  As I look out my window snowflakes are falling and they may accumulate up to 15 cm.  It is astounding to think that each and every snowflake is unique with its own beautiful and delicate design.  The exquisiteness they behold is that of a precious diamond if you take time to study them up close. Unwrapping today's book for you to enjoy...

Suzie Snowflake

Authored by Crystaline Rose and illustrated by Maksym Stasiuk

A self-esteem story

Unwrapping the incredible illustrations...

The illustrations are an explosion of happy colours and the colour pallet is very vibrant and bold.  They are hazy and dreamy like you have entered into a supernatural, surreal world. 

Unwrapping Suzie Snowflake...

Praise for "Suzie Snowflake" and the wonderful message it imparts to kids.  No one is perfect but every one of us has value and worth so let us celebrate who we are and the diversity and uniqueness of the others around us. 

Written in rhyme, we discover that Suzie lives high in the sky which enables her to envy all the beautiful snowflakes she sees drifting down passed her.  She glitters, twinkles and is bright white, full of light.  But Suzie feels bad about herself. She knows she is not perfect because she has a flaw ...

"One speck of dark
just right in her middle"

She tries to rub and wish it away, but no way... it stays!

Upset and downhearted she seeks out her parents for comfort and advice.  They surround her with love and encouragement and  positive words that fill up her heart. They convince her she is truly beautiful inside and out.  She is a treasure to behold and they both love every inch of her and she should love herself the same too.  She is one-of-akind, she is THE Suzie Snowflake. 

Kids will be inspired and take heart as they too realize their potential and specialness when the book is read and discussed.  It emphasizes the power of a strong, engaged family unit and the incredible power of words that can build up and honour who we are created to be.  To love others wholly you must first accept and love yourself.
