I Am Awesome!
What would happen if everyone lived in a special place called Goodland? No one ever was mean. Children are always good and they even get along. How fabulous is that! In Goodland everyone comes together to be good friends, good neighbors and good members of the community . The pictures help tell the story. The exciting part of this place is the person at the heart of Goodland is the Inventor. He created all the things that are in Goodland like the flowers, the tallest trees, and the incredible creatures, wonderful foods and the paints of the sunsets at bed time. Wouldn’t you like to live there?
The most exciting part of this book is meeting two of his most amazing followers: Grace and Zeal. They are best friends. Grace is a purple follower and is thoughtful and outgoing and Zeal is smaller but he shines like bright blue paint. They really get along and do everything together. But one day something happened to change it all.
Playing in the park another young girl approached them her name is Hope. Hope introduced herself to Grace and Zeal and wanted to play in the playground with them . But she said something about herself that they did not quite believe or understand. She said she lived in Goodland snd was good but she was also awesome! Awesome what does that mean! She did great things and even better than good but how could that be?
They had to verify and check with the Inventor. The Inventor was excited that Grace and Zeal wanted yo understand what Awesome means. How can anyone be more than Good living in Goodland? Think about all that he created them and their kindness, they’d abilities learn , understand and be creative and go above and beyond most children. Wouldn’t it be great if we could eliminate mean,rude and disrespectful and instill in all children what the Inventor instilled in them? Awesome!Everyone is awesome in some ways and Hope set the path for Grace and Zeal to use their mind’s and intelligence to see just how awesome they are since the Inventor created them in his Image and he is awesome too? Did they understand how awesome they are? What do you think makes you Awesome too ? The illustrations tell the story as the Inventor uses the illustrations to elaborate on the meaning of awesome and his creations? Who are they? Would you want to live in Goodland? Great lessons for children to understand how to get along with others,accept new friends and learn a special vocabulary word. I would love to see if the author will add more followers and add more positive words for Grace and Zeal to learn.
