“THE NEED GNOME” was born as a poem and remains so in this newly minted Book Eleven of Kelly Anne Manuel’s Essentials Series. In this story the Child is invited on a journey to meet a mythical creature named the Need Gnome. The Child will engage immediately with the narrator who introduces this unique and mysterious main character.
“THE NEED GNOME” offers a standing invitation to the Child. The Child will learn that this character represents a safe space where stating needs is not only accepted but encouraged. This is a story for all times of the day because its theme is a supportive one. There is a positive energy that the Child will feel as a result of the hopeful message that is delivered throughout the book.
The simple words take on new meaning as the illustrations pair perfectly with their presentation. The illustrations offer an imaginary setting with animals and gnomes personified. The story is illuminated by this fun and loving supporting cast of characters. There is discovery in the air as bunny rabbits, hedgehogs, and winged mythical friends grace the pages of the book.
“THE NEED GNOME” models the healthy expression of inner needs to a support system. The Child is invited to join the narrator at any time to visit this imaginary community. That positive communication is there for the Child to absorb throughout the story. Wonderful discussions and conversations will be started with this book as a topic.
It is in Early Childhood that futures are under major construction. “The Need Gnome” is a tool in a Caregiver’s toolbox to assist with that healthy formation. The idea that Children can openly express their needs in a way that is heard, received, and validated is embraced by the author. The Child who reads this book will be rewarded with a journey to an imaginary destination where the Need Gnome is always waiting and ready for a visit.
