Where Do You Go? written by Laura Larson, and illustrated by Duli Sen, is a lovely children’s book about the need to escape it all, to go somewhere peaceful and feel better about oneself and the world. It is beautifully illustrated and the drawings perfectly complement the superb text. Eventually, both the author and the illustrator answer the question themselves, which is very moving. At the end of the book too, kids are given the opportunity to draw their own safe and quiet place(s).
Where Do You Go? by Laura Larson is one of my favorite children’s books (among all those I have read lately) as it is about what makes children’s lives hard; difficult times such as the COVID lockdown in the past, being ready for a test and being stressed out about it, being sick and worried, missing one’s loved ones. It offers a powerful way to feel better and to be independent. Indeed, this enchanting book allows young people (and older, for that matter) to dream in varied pretty places where they can relax. Imagining being in those places is a way of meditating and being closer to oneself while being more secure inside, calmer, and happier.
Our children, grandchildren, and students deserve to be more joyful in a world that is not always reassuring and mostly in crisis. Young minds have to face major actual and future threats, too often in addition to a feeling of helplessness, even despair. This adorable book is a means to tell them that one good way to cope is to find shelter within themselves, thanks to the unlimited power of imagination. This will contribute to raising the general level of good vibrations and hope. Keeping one's spirits high will help everybody in the long run!
