A beautifully conceived book by a lawyer who moonlights as a photographer and wants to capture precious dream like moments and provide dream like experiences for children with cancer Colin and I have enjoyed going back through and scanning the QR codes for photos and information In addition to the brief introduction of each child, the QR codes, and the gorgeous photographs, each child has a story written in their honor 3 My favorite stories are the silly and sweet A Fireman Always Helps in which a fireman finds himself rescuing a kite and lots of other progressively sillier things from a tree, Sophia s Wings for a little girl whose biggest wish is to read a lot, The Princess in the Mirror in which a young princess learns that her magic mirror is not a separate being, but really just reflecting the strength inside her, and Batkid This book is a compilation put together to raise money for an amazing charity and to tell the stories of some pretty spectacular kids who are True Heroes in real life as they battle cancer at a very young age.
The stories in the book are inspired by or made up for these kids If I had my official story critic hat on I d probably give most of them three stars But that s not what this book is about Like I said before, it s about these kids and their dreams, and I d give them five stars, a hundred stars, all the stars in the sky if I could So that s where the four star rating came from, in case you were wondering If you re considering buying this book, please do The photographs are beautiful, the kids are incredible, and the cause is truly worthy.
This book is heart warming and heart wrenching all at the same time I think the project behind this book is wonderful and inspiring most especially because the subject, these beautiful children, are wonderful and inspiring Many of the stories are fun and well written I love that each story is written with a specific child in mind, keeping in mind that child s dream and making him her the hero Each story could easily stand on its own and each would make fun little bedtime stories I also love the photos and QR codes for Lovely book.
Beautiful book, gorgeous pictures, inspiring children
I read this book with my younger two kids just a bit at a time before bed I liked how the stories of real children battling disease were included in along with fantasy stories about them as the main characters battling dragons or winning games or improving their skills elsewhere.
I also appreciated their stories and the opportunity it gave me to share them with my children to widen their horizons a little bit about others and their challenges.
