Rainbow Children offers the gateway for the next generation to discover the magic of the Rainbow Bridge. It is a treasure chest of stories, information and ideas that we can use to help our children access deeper levels of understanding of themselves, others and the greater community. Using simple and accessible language, Linda guides the reader through a series of 'journeys', each one representing the major issues around each of the seven main chakras (utilizing seven characters that embody the qualities of the chakras). The illustrations are simple, drawn in a soft childlike way, and therefore quickly accessed and understood by children. The songs are beautifully sung, using real instruments; instantly catchy, they are unpretentious and positive in language and content. The little stick men drawings within the stories are a fun way to guide and encourage movement. Rainbow Children helps to teach our little ones to develop and own their own sense of belonging, of feeling, of personal power, of love, of voice, of intuition and of connection to source, and that the answers to our problems and questions often lie within our own ability to resolve. The message is clear that if we are inclusive in all aspects of ourselves and others, we can journey forward together towards a colorful and rewarding future. Adea Judith, Bestselling Author of Eastern Body, Western Mind This is a unique work, introducing qualities of acceptance and adaptability that can elude the best of us in challenging times. How wonderful to learn these strengths through activity, stories, and fun as a child. Linda's books are gems amongst the chaos, offering children the opportunity to recognise their own feelings and to see ways in which to deal with them towards the most positive outcome. Rich are the possibilities of a person whose awareness is awakened to these philosophies in childhood. Simple and obvious as they are in hindsight, so many of us are t able to navigate the complexities of our feelings with ease. These books could make that difference. Paula Mayura, Founder of the Mayura Yoga School Rainbow Children is an inspired and lovely project which, as an ex-teacher of Infants, I can sense will have a great interest for and influence on children in need of a spiritual input and support.
