"The Story of The Little Candle" is a book of real inspiration and guidance.
A book that helps us to take a journey within to discover the inner light and lead a life filled with it.
A story I felt that anyone at any age can use as a guide to learn how to discover, access and stay in the light. A motivational book that inspires one to find the courage to face the darkness and despear in the world we live in today.

A magical book.

A brilliant and enlightening little book, created for children, but with such subtle truth and depth that it speaks personally to both the listener and the reader, regardless of age.
The various news of fear and the conjuring (advertising) of deceptive, imaginary, “glittery” light are all too familiar in the world today. The impact on all, especially our young ones, is very apparent.
The dialogue created from reading and discussing the individual messages revealed were eye-opening, and at times co

The story of the little candle.
This book might be geared toward young readers but the message is for all children of any age. I myself found inspiration in its message that we can all be a little light, it has revived the idea of no matter what our age, our circumstances or anything that we may think can hold us back, the power we each posses within, can even spark another and the generous effect it could have. This book was well written for growing little minds with unlimited potential. Lets s

I highly recommend purchasing this inspirational and colorful children's book. This book provides an amazing foundation for children to develop their creative abilities and address challenges in their lives in a positive way. In these tumultuous times for children, given the bullying, peer pressure and social media negative impact, this book will truly empower kids to overcome their difficulties.

Absolutely a beautiful story that truly encapsulates the ideologies of

This book tells a captivating story which underscores the power of self-belief and the importance of taking ownership of one’s own happiness. Although targeted at children, the issues at the core of this book are faced at many different stages in life and as such, this book resonates with children and adult readers alike.
The simplicity of the prose style, clarity of the layout and cute but poignant illustrations render the Story of the Little Candle a refreshing and enjoyable read for a wide-ra

A beautiful story with a meaningful message. Showing children that if they put their minds to something they can achieve it. Also with this day and age, it's ok to be lit up in times of darkness. Show others that they can be more than they are. The story is illustrated gorgeously. I rated it 4/5 🌟's only due to the fact that some of the words used in the book were way above a 4-8 year old understanding. With that being said, if the parent is there and can explain the words it would make a lot mo ...more

The hostility among young kids are growing. Their role models are slowly disappearing. This book is a shining light and gave me hope of a brighter future by such authors who are so guided. I bought this book for the love of my life...Brendan, who is 9 years old. May this book be a beacon of hope for him and others like him. It certainly gave me hope.

The Story of The Little Candle is a Children's Book written by the author Inshan Meahjohn. The story is about a kingdom that was filled with darkness because all the candles there were unlit. The Dark King rules this kingdom. There were minions of fear that generated imaginary light to fool the unlit candles.

The story became interesting when one day an unlit candle went to wander in the forest. An unlit candle thought that h

Very inspirational book about overcoming. Sometimes, one light in the darkness can make all the difference. Kids will surely enjoy and most parents will be able to relate. The illustrations are clear and colorful. I love how the candles are so many different colors. There are a lot of big words in the book and some deep themes, so this would make for a great classroom book for a teacher. This should inspire much imagination from young ones.
