The Spirit’s Message
A Story About Living Kindly
by Beth Levine
Illustrated by Revers Lab
In a small village in a far-off land lived a young girl named Sara and her younger brother Justin. Today was a celebration: Sara turned thirteen, and as was the tradition in her village, she would travel into the nearby Magical Forest to receive a message from the Spirit of the Earth.
The seeker usually braved the forest alone, but because Sara and Justin were so close, they convinced her parents and the village elders to let them go together. Join the siblings as they embark on a mission into the Magical Forest, where they meet many of the woodland inhabitants and learn that the world around them is not what it may seem at first glance.
The duo is honored with the Spirit of the Earth’s most crucial message—but will they take it to heart? The Spirit’s Message is a tale of courage, hope, and kindness, brought to you through a journey of two young souls; it is a wonderful and purpose-filled read for ages eight through adulthood.
