New Children's Book Dedicated to Overcoming Obstacles and Restoring Hope
The Most Beautiful Thing in the World shows us the story of a boy who discovers what true beauty is.
Based loosely on real experiences, the story takes us around the world to some of this planet's most beautiful sites, while dealing with a devastating reality many children face, childhood blindness.
"I read an article recently titled The Apartheid of Children's Literature by Christopher Myers, and he stated 'too often today’s books remain blind to the everyday reality of thousands of children.' He was referring to children of color being outside the boundaries of imagination, and I wanted to be apart of the movement that brought them back in. Not just children of color, but children with disabilities as well," says writer Darnell Lamont.
The Most Beautiful Thing in the World is a book intended for Early-leveled readers, ages 5 - 8.
