Loved it! 😍

A good book with a valuable message for young readers.

Deanie Humphrys-Dunne is an award-winning children's author with seven books published. All of her books feature horses and farm animals. Deanie loves to inspire children to persevere, set goals, and help others. Her books have won several awards and recognition.

Deanie has also edited books for other authors and worked with a group of beta readers.

I enjoyed the book and felt that the message is an important one that would benefit young readers. Children will notice that Blossom saw herself differently than others do. Blossom's Mom reminded her about all the wonderful traits Blossom has. It's important for children to have a healthy self-image and realize that each of them is unique.

Raising a generation of emotionally intelligent rockstars!

What do you see in the tricky mirror?

Blossom has awaited her birthday celebration for months. Every detail has been planned with excitement to make the day absolutely perfect…yet something has gone terribly wrong. With so much fun to be had – why is Blossom slumped in the middle of her bedroom floor, sobbing into her pillow? In this heartwarming tale, Blossom is overcome with insecurity and self-doubt. Feeling unsure, Blossom begins thinking unkind self-thoughts, and worse, SHE BELIEVES THEM. On this day, Blossom will find out the power her thoughts have over her perception as her “tricky mirror” springs to life and takes the shape of her inner dialogue. Will Blossom triumph and learn self-compassion or will the “tricky mirror” win and ruin the joyous occasion? Blossom’s struggle with her “tricky mirror” will resonate with readers, young and old.
