“Moon Glow and Hyacinth” is a story about accepting who you are, inside and out. A caterpillar who wishes she could swim and a tadpole who wants wings so she can fly? How absurd! Moon Glow and Hyacinth try to achieve what they most admire in each other. But in the end, each must accept the harsh truth that sometimes you have to embrace your limitations. They learn that instead of wishing you are like someone else, discovering the magic that makes you unique and using your imagination can make your dreams come true.
Children often find fault with the way they speak or look, or with their abilities. Looking to others as “ideal” may lead to self doubt or low self esteem. Learning to appreciate others while accepting who we are inside and out is not always easy. But using our imaginations can suddenly open a world of new ideas that lead to self confidence.
Developing a strong vocabulary and engaging in the arts are wonderful ways to express ourselves.
