Now Playing: Kids' Book

Children's book: The 

Magic In You

A delicate little flower brings a powerful message of grace

 

Denver, CO, Feb 6, 2008 - The Magic in You tells the story of a flower that has taken root by a

roadway at the edge of a beautiful forest. She is small in comparison to the other flowers and is

teased for her insignificant stature. A Billy goat comes along and eats one of her pretty golden

petals. Then a car drives by and runs over one of her leaves, leaving the flower in quite a forlorn

state. She begins to cry, which gains the attention of a nearby woodland fairy.

 

"'Why are you crying little flower?'

'Well,' began the little flower, 'I just don't know why I am growing here, by the side of the road,

I mean. All the other flowers make fun of me. I wasn't feeling very pretty, and I wasn't feeling

very smart..'

'Maybe.' the little flower continued, 'you could wave your magic wand and make me beautiful.

Then I would surely be happy.'

'Oh, no,' replied the fairy as she gracefully poised herself to fly away. 'You do not need my

magic to become beautiful, or happy. You can become a happy, beautiful little flower any time

you want.'"

 

With these thoughtful words planted in the little flower, fortuitous events begin to unfold, and the

little flower quickly learns that though her circumstances may be less than ideal, she has the

power to affect the lives of other living creatures by what she can give-kindness, love, and most

of all, forgiveness.

 

The message of this poignantly illustrated story is timeless and transcends a reader's age. One

reason why the story touches on such a deep level is surely due to author Sally Taylor's own life

struggle for self-acceptance after years of spousal abuse.

 

"We all have a choice to remain the victim or find the courage to accept ourselves with all our

faults and all the wounds we have received from others," Taylor says. "It wasn't until I

understood how much my Creator loved me and accepted me, with all of my faults, that I was

able to find the same grace for myself and others. This children's story demonstrates the struggle

to live a victorious life."
