I found myself.
Finn is feeling upset, and his grandpa wants to help him. However, Finn is reluctant to talk to his grandpa, believing he won't understand his problems. To connect with Finn, his grandpa asks if they can walk together. Finn agrees hesitantly, wrapping himself in his blanket as they walk. During their walk, his grandpa doesn't push Finn to talk but tells him he will think about what's bothering him.
We picked this book based on a previous read. The book explores two crucial aspects to help us deal with our problems. First, taking a diversion, such as walking, can help us step away from our present issues and gain a more objective perspective. Second, having a trusted friend or family member who can support us during tough times is invaluable. They can empathize with our problems and even offer solutions. The illustrations in the book are also very appropriate for the storyline.
Cori Doerrfeld's Beneath tells the story of a walk in the woods that transforms into a journey of self-discovery. The protagonist's growth and exploration journey are inspiring and beautiful for the readers as the story progresses.
