GOODREADS Review (Julia Keizer)
I was contacted by the author to do this book review and was thrilled to do it.
The concept of anxiety and facing fears is excellently portrayed. Young Ronan has moved to a new place because his parents have to look after his grandmother. In this new and strange home is a fantastic garden waiting for a child to explore the area. His first fear he must overcome is facing the unknown in the overgrown garden. Once he becomes comfortable in his new play area, with a little help from his mom, a strange creature makes itself known to Ronan and many adventures await.
Through many different obstacles Ronan learns to defeat his fears. He learns that change is OK and is needed sometimes but if you remember the good times then the bad is much easier to overcome.
This book would be excellent for parents wanting to help a child overcome some anxieties at a young age. The author understand anxiety and that it isn't just something that you can say “Hey, I'm scared for a silly reason, and I just have to get over it” It takes time and patience and sometimes help from others around you.
It is based in Sri Lanka, and gives it a majestic feel. It would be good for any child going through anxiety and fears and would be something they would want to reread. Small children could relate easily and they would be able to understand the simple language used.
