Celebrate the joy of learning to love yourself with Luna and friends!

Meet Luna, a little girl who loves playing outside, helping her family, and learning new things. As Luna goes through her regular daily routine, she realizes how much love there is to appreciate around her and within herself too. She learns kindness, sharing, and even what to do when things don’t go her way. With simple prompts and activities scattered throughout the story, children will be able to explore the principles of self-love into their own lives. Kids will have a blast learning along with Luna as they discover the importance of loving each other and oneself!

Luna Finds Love Everywhere is a good choice to help your
child or grandchild find and show love not only to others but to
themselves too. Giving them tools to use when things don't go their
way and showing them how to use those tools to calm their nerves and
to find peace themselves.
It's also a great choice for kids because it covers racial diversity and
The illustrations are clever too pleasing both the adult and child's eye.
This would make a perfect gift and something you and your child could 
enjoy over and over!
