In a journey that carries the reader far beyond the printed page, a child discovers his common link with all of life. Inspired by Mr. Sun and Sister Star, he finds the light within his heart and then finds that same light everywhere. First published in 1989, All I See Is Part of Me received the 1995 BodyMindSprit Magazine Award of Excellence and was named to Positively Positive's Top 50 Inspiring Books for Children in 2012. Its enduring popularity led author Curtis and illustrator Aldrich to redesign and make this book available in paperback. Sister Star, how can it be That I am you and you are me? She glowed. You're larger than you kw, You are everyplace there is to go. You have a body - this is true - But look at what's inside of you!
