What the Road Said

We rated this book:


While a child heads toward home, following his usual path, he notices a road he’s never seen before; it’s as if it just appeared magically. He asks it where it leads. “Be a leader and find out,” it responds. When he inquires about what to do when he gets to his destination, it tells him to enjoy the moments in between, savoring each one. When he voices concern about choosing the wrong route along the way, the Road explains stumbling here and there is simply part of the journey. It teaches him, too, what it means to be brave, to show the world love, and to overcome life’s adversities.

What the Road Said is a heartfelt story about choices, challenges, survival, and perseverance. It’s a wonderful tribute to all who struggle with that inner voice that always asks, “why?” and is relentless in its pursuit for perfection. The Road encourages children to reach out, take risks, and simply get up when they fall. It urges them to trust their judgment, embrace change, and persist with determination, peace, love, and kindness even in the face of opposition. Those ages six to nine will find it a treasurable pick. They’ll admire the gorgeous, intricate illustrations throughout as well.
