A simple, universally appealing story told in rhyme, and whose language and pacing will grab a child’s imagination quickly, await readers of The Miracle of You.
The Miracle of You is a short lyrical and pictorial children’s book by Cleere Cherry Reaves, an author who delights in abetting high regard and esteem in young minds, through highly imaginative compositions and narratives. The storyline captures a parent’s unconditional love for their children, and the incomparable position children hold in their parent’s heart and mind. The author's message is straightforward, particularly when she offers a warm comparison between different creations such as the ocean's life forms and the stunning galaxy, to parental love.
The enchanting yarn aims to make young minds aware of the selfless nature of genuine parental love such as, it has no strings attached and isn’t based on what they are or what they do. Children are visual readers and this book will easily captivate their attention due to its colorful pictures and fine wording which offer an element of excitement that keeps one hooked from page to page, as well as adding layers of meaning to the story. Reaves's creative imagination does not just leave readers entertained but challenged, fascinated, and reflecting on their uniqueness and value. This makes this storybook go beyond an ordinary children's book to one that implores repeated reading with diligence and attention. Though Reaves's wonderful publication is dedicated to young children between the age of four to eight years, the book's gorgeous and unforgettable illustrations that have been masterfully drawn to aid understanding will have the book stand the test of time and still elicit a response from adults, for years to come.
Quill says: A good children’s book goes beyond an entertaining story and enters a realm of timelessness and treasure. The Miracle of You is an excellent all-time read that can be read repeatedly by virtue of its rhyming language, tone, and tempo which keep readers connected and engaged.
