Cordelia by Michelle Nelson-Schmidt was released by Usborne Books in the summer of 2016. It is a beautiful book that children and adults can relate to! I received a copy last fall when my upline sent it to me and I quickly fell in love with it! Like many others, it touches me personally. How many of us try to grow or “fly” in life and many aren’t so encouraging? Cordelia is a book with lovely illustrations, rhyming text that children love and a heartfelt story that can be so uplifting and empowering!
“Cordelia could fly along with the breeze. What seemed impossible, she did with ease.” She loved to fly, soar above the ocean, play games with the stars, make the moon smile… life was an endless delight until… others doubted she flew. At first, she tried to explain how it was possible that she could fly but everyone told her she was wrong. So… she stopped doing what she loved. No more making the moon grin, no more playing with the stars to see who would win. “She began to walk in an ordinary way. Like everybody else on an ordinary day”. But she was no longer happy. Then she started to think and became angry at herself for letting other people change her! “Who are they to say if she could or couldn’t fly? What was or wasn’t possible, if they didn’t even try?” So as she let the doubts of others fall away, she began to soar again! The vibrant colors of her dreams and world came back!
Per request, I’ve read Cordelia over and over again to my 2 yr old son! I now have it memorized and that’s a great thing! On those “gray” days, I quickly pull up the words to the book in my mind. It is simple enough to grab a child’s attention and encourage them… and you too! There’s also a Cordelia plush doll to go with the book that can be purchased for your little dreamers!
I thoroughly love sharing MY love for these books, having the opportunity to help improve literacy and making new connections!
