Journey from Skioria by Kandi J. Wyatt
I am always on the lookout for child appropriate reading, one that allows a child a simple adventure that will fuel their imaginations without fear or monsters and plants the seeds for a love of books that will last a lifetime. JOURNEY FROM SKIORIA by Kandi J. Wyatt is one of those reads that an adult can read with a younger child, a child can read on their own and a family can talk about afterwards. A child doesn’t need the minutest details, they need a story that talks to them at their level. As an adult, of course I want more to make me believe, I want answers to unasked questions, but Kandi J. Wyatt writes for children, she addresses their innocence with a make-believe, safe adventure while still deftly weaving pieces of real life into the mix!
Young Tania has washed ashore on a distant land after a boating accident with her family. Her adventure begins when she meets the many races of people in this magical land of forests, mountains and even people who can fly. In a world where she is alone, she is not friendless, and kindness abounds, as everyone comes together to help her embark on a journey that will take her back to the land of humans. Follow her journey, feel the bonds she has formed with her new friends and witness a heart-warming moment of discovery for a young boy who never quite fit in in his family!
A delightful read that is ideal for children in its sweet innocence, positive feelings, wonderful descriptions and lovable characters!
