Finding Diamonds (Paperback)
A young boy’s curious mind, nature and the power of loving relationships lead the way to his most important discovery. Helps children:
- Talk about feelings
- Build self-acceptance
- Connect to nature
If you find a giant diamond are you as valuable as a giant diamond? A young boy hopes so! He struggles to do his spelling and to remember his homework and to get someone to play with him. To make it worst, his sister does everything “great”. To make it even worst than that, his mother wants him to clean his room! While his family sleeps, he does what he loves most—rock hunting with hopes of finding a giant diamond. Maybe with a giant diamond he will be important and valuable.
Taking place in rural coastal Maine, the boy and his old dog, take a step out the door and the journey begins. He is both knowledgeable and curious about nature, finding all kinds of natural treasures. As he wanders, we hear about his hopes, his losses, struggles, and most of all his joy in the natural world.
This story illustrates the inner life of a young boy with hopes and struggles that even older children and adults may relate to. Don’t we all want to feel important and valued? His curious mind, nature, and the power of loving relationships lead the way to his most important discovery.
Parents, teachers, and therapists will find this book a gentle and beautiful way to engage children in conversations about their hopes and dreams, as well as their losses and struggles. Finding Diamonds also encourages a child’s natural curiosity and connection to nature.
