There are delicate topics to discuss with children, but a good writer can explain them and even convey a message of hope and optimism to young readers. This is the case of Lucy Lemon and the Brave Bubbles by Veronica DeStefano. Lucy Lemon is a wonderful little girl, but unfortunately, she suffers from selective mutism, a type of anxiety that afflicts her in some situations. One day, however, it seems that the solution is at hand thanks to the magic of the brave bubbles, which help her to be courageous. Are you ready to be captivated by the delightful story of Lucy Lemon and discover how it will turn out?
Lucy Lemon and the Brave Bubbles is one of the most beautiful children's books I have read. Veronica DeStefano's story is entertaining, and the images are as charming as the text. I am sure this book will be a source of inspiration to all children who find themselves in a situation similar to that of Lucy Lemon. Whether they have selective mutism or another disorder, the determination of the young protagonist and the magic of the brave bubbles will be helpful for them. The example of Lucy Lemon is the right one to follow, and I hope young readers of Lucy Lemon and the Brave Bubbles can feel the same magic as the protagonist in their lives. They all deserve to shine, and if they need magic bubbles because they cannot do it on their own, this book tells them how to do it.
