Meru and the Magic Thread

Tale of Love, Innocence and Faith Meru and the Magic Thread. Trafford

Age Level: 8+

Reader Book Suggestion

Sarah says:  In our society we have taught our children to ignore the intuitive feelings they have by telling them not to worry or that what they are feeling isn't right. This book nurtures the intuitive level. This story is a beautifully written tale of Love, Innocence, and Faith. A young boy takes a journey and faces many challenges along the way. He uses only the purity of his nature to overcome the obstacles presented along the way. I thought this was a very impressive way to teach children to use their intuitions. I recommend every parent pick this up and read it with their child. It leaves room for discussion and has a reference dictionary for the larger words at the bottom of each page. This book is what the kids of our world need, it teaches love, faith, and gives the child a new way to deal with everyday trials. Great book!

  • I would suggest ages 8 and over.
  • Parents will even love this!
