The Best Feeling In The World by Christopher R. Kaden, illustrated by Kalpart, is the short story of a young boy named Simon who feels like an outcast by some of his peers at school. His two best friends, Thomas and Carlos, do not see him as a spoiled rich child like the others do. Simon’s parents, his father a basketball player and his mother working at a TV station, shower him with gifts that he doesn’t really want. Deep in the young boy’s heart, he wishes his parents showered him with love rather than material things. Simon wants to spend time with his parents without their conversations becoming an argument. How can Simon make his parents see that he doesn’t need a big house, a limousine, a personal chef or any of the other things they have given him? How can Simon explain that all he needs is his parents to love him and spend time with him?
The Best Feeling In The World by Christopher R. Kaden is a wonderful children’s story that sends a positive message to children to encourage them to discuss how they feel. The illustrations by Kalpart are absolutely amazing and help to lead the reader through the story with the beautiful and bright images. I’m certain many young readers will understand and be able to easily relate to the characters as the author defines them in a very realistic and comprehensive manner. I recommend The Best Feeling In The World to anyone with children in their lives. Any child would love this encouraging story to read or have read to them. The illustrations created by Kalpart help build the story line and will definitely keep kids interested and entertained.
