Praise for The Adventures of Lumi Nary Light, A Fairy Tale of a Teeny Tiny Angel ©
“The Adventures of Lumi Nary Light is a wonderful tale for young children, especially little girls, who will fall in love with Lumi instantly. This tiny angel is given a quest in order to win her wings. Her journey is full of loving energy and spiritual storytelling that will brighten any child’s day.
Lumi comes from Sunshinealot where she goes to Angel School and is asked to do the work of the Good Spirit. Lumi must give two special children a magical globe that gives them the gift of knowing what they are supposed to be when they grow up – something adults forget.
Lumi’s adventures take her to the evil dark woods where she must help the children, Betsy and Sammy, who have gotten lost. Meeting fantastic characters to help her like the Sun and Moon, Twink, the star, and the Water Sprites, Lumi is aided in helping the children return home.
This story is a great introduction to the concept of angels, meditation, and visualization. It is full of a love of nature and an inherent belief in goodness. There is something in this book for adults and children alike. It can be read aloud and shared or given as an early reader to children who are beginning their spiritual path.
It is not often that you read a book that is a pure joy – this is one of those special books.”
– New Consciousness Review, January 2012
“Lumi is a very small angel who needs to earn her wings. Her task is to help two runaway children find their way home safely. On the way through the dark woods, Lumi takes them to meet magical beings – even the sun and the moon. She teaches them how to meditate, and gets help from a star. But will she be able to get the children home by dawn? Will Lumi earn her wings, or will they be trapped in the dark woods forever?
This lovely fairy tale will be cherished by children and their parents. The story is full of love and magic, and will charm young and old alike. Children will embrace the lovely message of hope and love, and will take little Lumi into their hearts. This chapter book will be perfect for bedtime reading, and the charming drawings may encourage children to draw their own versions of Lumi and her magical friends. Parents will be able to use Lumi’s lessons to help their children learn to visualize and meditate, just like the children in the book. Recommended for ages 5 and up. Published by Peace of the Dreamer, this book is available at your local bookstore.
