Amy Logan has created a terrific book, ostensibly directed toward young girls. However, once I read this wonderfully written and illustrated story, I realized it transcended all ages.
A Girl With A Cape resembles a fairy tale, but it’s so much more. It’s an instructional manual, if you will, telling us how, one by one, we can make a difference. In Amy’s words—“We can change the world.” How? By doing simple common sense things we should have been doing all along. Things like, telling your family you love them. Simple, right? But the person who hears the words, “I love you,” is impacted in a hugely positive manner for the rest of the day and beyond. The words become infectious, causing a chain reaction empowering others to be kind and gracious.
The cape, which is included with each book, is emblematic of a superhero. However, it’s an atypical hero, not one that can fly or see through walls. Rather, the superhero in Amy’s book is able to change the world merely by using kind words and gestures.
I’d recommend this book for the holidays, but the reality is the story is appropriate for every day of the year. Kind words and a loving heart send a powerful message to friends and foes alike, one that says—I care about you. Every one of us can all easily become superheroes and make our world a better place. Amy Logan’s work can make a difference in your life. Give it a chance.
