    Rayne Shines was a pleasant surprise, telling a positive thinking moral of relaxing the urge to preemptively judge experiences and letting oneself have fun via a story about a cynical frog whose character development is actually reasonably organic and gradual, given how short the story is While I didn t enjoy the art style of the book, the story itself was rather cute and refreshing.My full review of Rayne Shines can be read here at Amara s Eden A copy of this book was provided free by the a Rayne Shines was a pleasant surprise, telling a positive thinking moral of relaxing the urge to preemptively judge experiences and letting oneself have fun via a story about a cynical frog whose character development is actually reasonably organic and gradual, given how short the story is While I didn t enjoy the art style of the book, the story itself was rather cute and refreshing.My full review of Rayne Shines can be read here at Amara s Eden A copy of this book was provided free by the author in exchange for an honest review

    Cute story with a deeper meaning I love the way the author shows her audience how much negative comments and negative thinking can affect us all She also reminds the reader that a little bit of positivity goes a long way The art is fun and colorful and should be pleasing to young children.

    The message is very delightful Negative thinking gives way to positive thinking How true It s not what you have that makes you happy, it s what you do with it that makes you happy Despite the irony of using negativity to rate a book about positivity, I do feel my further comments can be construed as a positive means to improve this book.The artwork is clearly important and takes up half of the book, as it should There is a reason we have children s artists out there they know how to make th The message is very delightful Negative thinking gives way to positive thinking How true It s not what you have that makes you happy, it s what you do with it that makes you happy Despite the irony of using negativity to rate a book about positivity, I do feel my further comments can be construed as a positive means to improve this book.The artwork is clearly important and takes up half of the book, as it should There is a reason we have children s artists out there they know how to make the beautiful prose come alive through pictures It is not only obvious artistic talent it is also COMMUNICATING the art For example, when an artist tries to show a frog touching each other, a talented artist will actually make the reader perceive that the frogs are very close at heart, and one is reassuring the other A less talented artist will not be as successful in showing this important subtle message Also, since it s a children book, the text could be much bigger, making it easy for the children to read The author has nailed the prose I loved her full length young adult novel, Desiccate She can write very well However, for a children s book aimed at very young children, the artwork is key, which is why so many children s books split the work between two creators the author and the artist
