A Journey in the Moon Balloon When Images Speak Louder Than Words is a book that was created for kids with cancer and other illnesses to take them on a journey when they are sick in bed to help them forget about all that is going on around them.
When you get in the balloon, you drump out all your worries and stresses because the balloon can’t fly with those weighing you down. There are interactive parts throughout the book for kids to draw and wish. An Angry Balloon lets you get our your frustrations. A giggle balloon makes you laugh.
Art and creation beings you back to the soul. There are also some stories about cancer patient kids and how this book and crafting helped them feel better, even for just a little bit. This book has also been donated to the Sandy Hook community here in CT to help the children affected by the shooting help to heal.
The end of the book includes instructions for the projects that were mentioned in the book.
I received an e-copy of this book in exchange for this review.
