A cute book to help explain that each person in the world has been created to be awesome.
Goodland is a place where everybody is good. The inventor created Goodland and all the things in it. His favorite inventions are the followers and if you ever ask them how they are doing, they will always respond “Good”. Grace and Zeal are two of the followers that love to play together. One day that meet another follow named Hope. When they ask Hope how she is doing, she responds “I Am Awesome!” Grace and Zeal don’t understand how Hope can be awesome. After all, this is Goodland where everybody is good. In a quest for answers, they seek out the inventor to find out if someone really can be awesome.
This is a cute book that helps kids understand the purpose for which they were created. I read this book with my four-year-old and now it has become a nightly read for us. We have talked about how the Inventor represents God and the followers represent people throughout the Earth. Each person was specifically created to do awesome things. He understands what is being taught and likes to read about Grace and Zeal’s adventures. And maybe most importantly, he likes to say, “I Am Awesome!” at each point in the book.
I received a complimentary copy of this title from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
