Kathryn Otoshi has written a wonderful book about loving who we are, as well as what we have to offer the world in her book Zero.
Zero only sees a hole, right in her center whenever she looks at herself. Everyday she watches the other numbers line up to be counted, she wants to be counted too. She tries as hard as she can to change, to be a 1 or an 8 but it just doesn't work, she is simply empty in the middle. With the help of 7 she is able to see herself in a new way and she gets the numbers to count like they have never counted before.
I really enjoyed this book. I think it would be a great story to read to a child everyday and talk about how we all have gifts that we can and should share with the world. We all count and we all can make the world a better place. We also must realize, just like number 7 did, that others also count in the world.
After reading this book write a letter to a friend and let them know how much you appreciate them.
Happy Daily Reading
