Knight with a Heart: Power of Tapping by Ognjen Livada is a good story for children that conveys an important message and concept; that of tapping away their problems with their fingers and heart. The Knight with the Sword goes to hunt down the Mighty Dragon who destroys the town. The Girl with a Pen starts to write down how to get rid of the problems calmly. She sees the furious knight, who is looking for his sword, and decides to calm him down. She asks him to repeat three times what she says, and by the time he finishes saying and tapping the points where she asks him to, he is more relaxed and finds his sword. Will he be able to confront the Mighty Dragon with this technique?

The story has some excellent messages to readers about the power of unconditional love and dealing with anger. The illustrations are adorable and convey the concept with clarity, and breathe life into the scenes and characters. The story also encourages readers to be patient and remain calm in all situations. It's a good storybook for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries, and parents and grandparents can read it out to their children and grandchildren at night. Books like this are good for children to help them understand and practice the message or the concept with ease when narrated with the help of a story and illustrations.
