The Little Light Inside, Published 2016

The Little Light Inside, Written by Ignacio and illustrated by Alessandra is a guided meditation for children. This book teaches the Hawaiian words for body parts, and imparts guidance for ways to maintain a healthy body, heart and spirit.

Family camping trips are among my favorite childhood memories. As we sat around the fire in the cool of the evening, my grandfather told us the stories of our ancestors gathering around the fire… He spoke of the light in the fire we each hold within and how we, as human beings, are all connected through this light. For some, the light is bright and they know they carry it responsibly. For others the light is dim and they are trying to learn to make it brighter.

Book is for age ranges 3 and above. Click here to order this book.
