The Magic of Life


Must read 🏆

The Magic of Life is a beautifully written and illustrated story with important advice for children.

The Magic of Life is a beautifully written and illustrated story that teaches children many life lessons.

Aikyam was a wise owl that lived in a universe she called Home. She lived at Home alone and had invisible magic called Love. Aikyam was a voracious reader and learned about many things. She wanted to experience all that she read about and came up with a great idea – she decided to use her magic to split herself into many living beings. She created planets, stars, wind, fire, animals, people (her children) and many other things.

Every person she created was unique and would have different experiences. Aikyam compared the journey they would have to a game in which they would each be given a personal map, key points, and tasks. The children would each choose the path they wanted to take. She gave them advice to help them through their journey.

This story is deeply meaningful and provides children with lots of advice in a very sweet manner. They will learn it’s important to accept others, be one with all (teamwork), befriend nature, be kind and brave, and much more. The author provides examples to help explain the lessons.

Aikyam is like a mother and through the author’s writing, you can feel the motherly love.

The illustrations are cute, bright, and colorful. They add to the pleasant tone of the story and are very eye pleasing.

I believe this is a book an adult and child should read together. Some children may need guidance in understanding the meaning of the book.

Definitely a book worth checking out!
