Description

A Bug's Brave Journey for a Meaningful Life

The greatest joy and fulfillment in life come from following our hearts and being who we were designed to be. Sometimes that means boldly stepping out of our comfort zone and finding reward in a purpose-driven existence. In today's world of materialism and technology-driven isolation, this book teaches young children to dare to dream big and embrace life with zest, compassion, and action. Go on an exciting, brave journey with Kaboojie Bean as he ventures out from his usual dark spaces into the amazing nature of New Zealand. As a stranger in a new land, he meets many challenges, makes new Kiwi friends, and discovers the true meaning of life. Courageous Bean follows his dream! A beautifully illustrated picture book with much New Zealand flora and fauna such as the long-tailed butterfly, the tuatara, kiwi birds, kakapo, weta, tui birds, grasses, ferns, and kauri trees. Landscapes of oceans, islands, beaches, forests, and hills of sheep fill the pages. A wondrous keepsake for families who've vacationed in New Zealand or just love Aotearoa!

Kaboojies are fun and inspirational! A deeply metaphoric story with a fun, yet inspirational message for young growing minds. Sometimes switching things up and trying new things in life can present many risks, but at the same time, a leap of faith can also bring great joy, growth and new perspective to our lives. Kaboojies and friends also embody the mindset of living our lives with kindness and an open mind to new friendships and opportunities in all aspects of life. A must read!!! Read more
