"In every sadness, blessed is the comfort." This powerful sentence is one of many in this children's book. The author focuses on the positives in every situation we go through, like with this phrase. While sadness isn't fun, the comfort we receive during this moment is wonderful and heartfelt. It's like taking the good with the bad and everyone feels down at some point in their life.

This stunning picture book teaches children that for every bad event, there's a blessing waiting on the other end. Words cannot express how beautifully detailed and vibrant the pictures are. I enjoyed this book with my daughter and it opened the door for so many discussions.

Final Verdict: IN EVERY LIFE is a powerful thought-provoking children's novel with gorgeous illustrations to help get each message through. I would recommend this to children of all ages because it's a great message no matter the race, age, or gender. We all suffer at some point in life and the author teaches children to go into things with a positive outlook.
