PICTURE BOOK | The Emerald Green Forest
“Everything is possible, you can wish for anything you want. It doesn’t matter if your wishes are big or small, ordinary, or extraordinary. What matters is that they are sincere and truly yours.”
Petra Šuštar invites us to the green world to relax and calm our minds down with her mediation book for children. The setting of the first picture book of the trilogy, The Emerald Green Forest is a magical forest and with the help of animals living in, it helps children to cope with fear, sadness, and worry and brings a sense that everything in life is possible.
One day the author received a very special message from the mommy of a six-year-old girl with leukemia to thank her for The Emerald Green Forest by saying that it was very helpful and the book helps her daughter relaxed and calm down. Then Petra decided that The Emerald Green Forest needs to reach as many children as possible.
Her wish is these books become accessible for the children all over the world so they could embrace, heal, and comfort them, as well as sprinkle a pinch of magic dust on their way. The children deserve it.
