Elina Stamatatou (author)
A story about moments of serenity in life, when everybody’s hard work pays off and all wishes come true. ..”.As we all know, mothers are experts at yelling. The whole house get jumpy…That day though, everything was quiet…We put the cake in the oven and went outside to sit on the front steps to welcome the balmy evening that was just arriving. The dogs and cats ambled over lazily and lay down close by. We felt very happy, calm and full of love…” A magic recipe with beautiful illustrations, ‘The First Secret’, is whispered by little sisters Katerina and Ios, with the aid of a wise owl and an old tortoise.
This is a cute children’s book that focus’ on the joys of life. It is not worth focusing on the negative – no one can be happy focusing on the negative. But focus on joy and everything comes into place. There are plenty of animals and love all around. This is a cute story – quick story to share with children to remind them that happiness is as easy as being joyful.
