When children connect positively with the natural world and use it as a guide in their life, wonderful transformation occurs within and, and as a result, a more caring adult is created. Encouraging youngsters to regard Mother Earth with wonder and respect makes up a core element of ‘The Nature of Me’ – a collection of inspiring verse for youngsters. As part of a progressive genre of children’s books, poet Jaany’s soul-nourishing poems speak to the heart and mind of every child, providing nurturing messages of self-worth and purpose that are an essential tool, building a healthy sense of self-esteem.
In our busy, modern world where so many young souls can feel disconnected from nature, Jaany’s uplifting and affirming words provide support, gently guiding each child’s imagination through a spirit-enriching journey as they visit an Ancient Tree, acknowledge My Heart Is a Flower, see that The Earth Is My Friend, gaze up with wonder at Moon Smile and are led to a place of calm; In My Garden, where they feel secure, relaxed and ready to drift off into a good night’s sleep. ‘The Nature of Me’ is rightly regarded as a vital element to healthy mind, body, soul development for young children, everywhere.
