Kat Kronenberg, author of the award-winning and bestselling children's book Dream Big, recently released the highly anticipated second book in her trilogy, Love Big.
In her new book Love Big, readers get to follow the moody Baboon as he discovers a rather powerful secret. The once lush, thriving African savanna has become dry and desolate and now hungry, miserable animals seek only to satisfy their own interests. The moody Baboon watches on as the animals continue to be unkind to each other until one day he sees an act of kindness when Rhinoceros shares his snack-on-a-stick with Hare - and from that very moment, everything changes!
After witnessing Rhinoceros' act of kindness to Hare, Baboon comes to realize that there is a power between the animals when they share smiles and believe in not only themselves, but in each other. Now that Baboon has come to this enlightening discovery of positivity, can he and the other animals work together to embrace the "power of WE" and save their homeland?
In Love Big, author Kat Kronenberg shares a sweet mythological fable that entertains and offers an uplifting message for all ages.
"It's more crucial than ever for kids to witness people - or in this case animals! - who are creating community in a society that often seems combative and divided," author Kat Kronenberg explains, "No matter where you are from, we can all relate to and benefit from the power of a smile. It speaks every language, crosses every border, and can make even the toughest times better."
In addition to her books Dream Big and Love Big, Kronenberg launched the companion website www.KatKronenberg.com to further her mission of building fun-loving WE communities with her books themes of kindness, sharing, listening and care of self and others. Her website also provides community-building activities such as Common Core aligned discussion and project guides, videos, free downloadable activity sheets and more!
Also, to help celebrate the magic and marvel of WE, part of the proceeds from Love Big will go to support we.org, grameenamerica.org and teachers via donorschoose.org.
For our review, we were sent a preview copy of Love Big written by Kat Kronenberg.
