Welcome to the second book in the series. Haven’t read the first book yet? I must encourage you to redirect your gaze to the start of the series so you can fully appreciate the work of art you are about to embark upon.
This is a story about Kai. Kai worries, and his big imagination sure doesn’t help! Part of the “Money Monsters” series, “The Missing Money” teaches children about how an ATM can accept money and keep it safe in a bank account. Children will love to engage the book as it fuels their superhero fantasies and the villains that imaginations love to provide.
This book is about healing and health in a holistic pursuit: treating both body and mind. The book is broken into three main categories with a two-part conclusion and aims to inspire readers via a reflective journal approach from the author’s perspective of their own life. Each short reflection and small anecdote connect to the larger tapestry of what Valeria coins “the healing power of being you.” It’s an impressive work for the author given her traumatic past and is a testament to the power of what her book possesses.
There’s more that meets the cover with this book. First off, when individuals purchase the book, the proceeds go toward activism efforts such as the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, the Jane Goodall Institute, and the Global Wildlife Conservation, all with the aim of helping save endangered animals. It’s an appropriate action, too, given that this book is aimed to help turn readers toward advocacy.
