Title: A Beginner’s Guide to Being Human

Author: Matt Forrest Esenwine

Illustrator: Andre Ceolin

Publisher: Beaming Books

Pages: 32

My GoodReads Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The book invites children to appreciate the human species, what it enjoys and what one must do to get the best out of the experience.

The illustrations by Andre Ceolin are cozy and charming and a perfect accompaniment to the text.

This could be a neat little gift for a child who has just begun to read. Or a grownup could read out the book to the child and explain some of the concepts such as compassion, empathy, family, friendship etc. Use the book as a springboard to explain to a little one how, despite our differences, we are all alike, and how we need one another’s support to navigate life’s tricky journey.

For that matter, these are refresher lessons that we grownups could also benefit from.

(I read this book on Edelweiss. Thank you to the author, the publisher and Edelweiss.)
