The Little White Light by Judy Ann Lowe is an adorable storybook for children, with an uplifting concept that will enchant young readers. Penny discovers a white light that appears at the corner of the ceiling. She was still awake and wondered what it was. After a while, Penny started noticing the white light during the daytime too. Sometimes the light was small, sometimes it was big, sometimes the light was square, and sometimes it was rectangular. Penny slowly started talking to the white light and she found its energy comforting. She felt it was watching over her all the time and it would be with her forever.
A beautiful story, the mystery of the white light is magical and enchanting and makes readers aware of the existence of a higher power in our lives. The illustrations are as adorable and magical as the author's words, and give a good pace and movement to the story. It's a good bedtime storybook and can be read out to kids before bed. It's also perfect for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries, and the concept is comforting and peaceful to young readers.
Stories that are inspirational, motivational, and uplifting are good for children to help them understand the positive vibes around them and also accept the presence of a higher power, as in the case of Penny who is initially astounded by the presence of the white light and later finds it comforting.
