A gift for Sophie~ by Gilles Vigneault
A Gift For Sophie by from The Secret Mountain
Author: Gilles Vigneault
Is a wonderful storybook & music CD that tells the story of a little girl and her friend who adore her great-uncle. Unfortunately uncle Tom is very old and passes away, but leaves behind an important message that the children realize later on when a cherished gift goes missing. The little girl, saddened by the loss, calls on her uncles spirit to help her find it. After awakening the next morning, she remembers something her uncle had said about birds and shiny things, helping the kids to find the missing gift and bringing back another memory of something the uncle used to tell them: “Even in the most humble present, we must see all the treasures of the heart”! While looking for her “present” the little girl found the “treasure” (words from her uncle) in her heart 🙂
I love the concept behind this story, it not only allows children to understand death and see how other children deal with it as well as teaching them to look into their hearts for answers or right decisions and is most definitely a book I enjoy reading to our little guy and niece. They loved the music CD that came with it.
You can find it for $16.95 Hardcover book/CD)
