I just finished a really good book.
It engrossed me...however it has also left me a bit disturbed and shaken.
The book was largely centered on abuse, some of that towards children. As a new Mommy I now realize I just don't have the heart for that sort of story telling anymore. I feel raw and exposed.
I want to go hug my baby.
Fairly inconvenient since she is, you know, sleeping.
So here is where you come in. Recommend!
Something fluffy. Like Bison Frise fluffy.
Perhaps with a fairy tale ending? Where all the children are neatly tucked in their beds at night by their loving parents. They are told how special they are, how prized and how beautiful. All these lovely well adjusted youngsters grow as individuals while being nourished inside and out by their family, friends and communities.
They know they are safe. They know they are protected and valued.
Maybe there is a literary musical number?
Giving new meaning to a 'book' number...Ha!
Anyone know a book like that?
