Magic Monday - The healing power of love and nature

Tashi and the Tibetan Flower Cure – a heartwarming, inspiring and touching story that shows how love and friendship can be found no matter where you are if you just look and the magical powers they possess in helping you feel better.
Tashi is a little girl who loves her grandfather and spends a lot of time with him until one day he falls sick. She does not like seeing him so weak and when she recalls what he told her about the traditional Tibetan flower cure, she sets out in search of something similar in America. What starts out as her effort to help her grandfather ends up involving the whole community.
Wonderful illustrations by the author accompany the flowing text and the rich colors portray the beauty of nature very well. This is a great book to learn about other cultures and about the healing power of love and nature. The love Tashi has for her grandfather and how it is depicted here touched my heart. The back of the book provides a short glimpse into Tibet and the words/aspects of culture mentioned in the book.

This is a great book to add your reading list.
