♥ Princess Marisol & The Moon Thieves is no ordinary children’s book. It is a multimedia children’s adventure. In this powerful, yet fun-loving tale about a little princess who is trying to recover the stolen moon from a couple of mischievous musicians, we are taken on a journey filled with adventure, beauty and ultimately self-discovery.
In its creation, there has been a collaboration of artistry from the fields of music, fine art and literature and the result is a proverbial story of working together and learning respect for each other and for nature. To reinforce those lessons the book contains a curriculum component that can be used by educators, parents and guardians alike.
An additional theme of the work places a focus on multiculturalism. As the world around us grows, our interaction with people from other cultures becomes more common. Learning about and from these cultures is both vital and beautiful. –
