BOOK REVIEW: You Are a Gift to the World by Laura Duksta

The author of You Are a Gift to the World, Laura Duksta, lost all of her hair at the age of eleven. As a result of this, she has experienced bullying, teasing and depression! After learning to love and accept herself (at the age of 30!), she finally began to live her life and has began to spread the message that “we get back what we reflect to others”. She began to write books that teach people to express and accept love, something that many of us have difficult with!

I love this book, it’s unique twist is so wonderful because it is a flip over book that has 2 books in one! One side is called “You Are a Gift to the World” and reminds us the many different ways that life itself is continually unwrapping magical moments. The flip side is called “The World Is a Gift to You” and shows us how many of the biggest gifts are provided to us by the Earth.

The illustrations in this book are so lively and cheerful. They add to the uplifting message and feel of the book!

The hardcover version of this book became available as of April 19th, 2011.
