Welcome to the World – A Child’s Blessing: Review
Welcome to the World!
by inspirational author Kanta Bosniak works as a baby blessing for the child and for the child in us all. Directly addressing the child, it serves as a kind of loving welcome as well as a kind of spiritual owner’s manual for exploring the adventure of life. The book gently anchors self-worth, confidence, kindness, and compassion. Parents can read it to the baby still in utero, to the newborn, as well as to the toddler.
Welcome to the World is a blessing for a new child written in prose. It’s all the things you would want to tell your child; how much you will care for them, how they can be anything they want. In a sense it reminds me of epic Vedic scripts. However, it is broken up with whimsical illustrations and inspiration quotes, making it both easy to read and a source of strength for the parent when they need it. It’s a lovely book and would make a great gift for any new or expectant parents.
Buy the book from….
Toddlers and young children can enjoy the complementary Welcome To The World! Coloring Book. And adult “children” of all ages may enjoy re-parenting themselves with both book and coloring book, which feature sweetly whimsical line drawings and affirmations typical of Bosniak’s books.
Whilst reading Welcome to the World, I found myself itching to colour in some of the illustrations. They are all in this colouring book, bigger and bolder than in the blessing book itself. They are the kind of illustrations you might find yourself colouring in an idle moment, but they have meaning too and go to the heart of the sacred nature of life and birth. All that being said, I know my daughter would enjoy colouring them too and it would give us a lovely base for discussions about being her true self.
