Alani Indigo Santamarina Releases First Book, A PLACE WHERE WE ALL BELONG
Aspiring author Alani Indigo Santamarina has published her first book at the young age of 12 years old. Written when she was only eight, "A Place Where We All Belong" is a whimsical yet poignant first entry in to the writing world.
New authors are published every day, but rarely are they as young as Alani. Beginning this tale at merely eight years old, her style has matured over the years while her message remained strong. "A Place Where We All Belong" offers a rare glimpse into the workings of a child's idealistic mind.
"A Place Where We All Belong," and its delightful accompanying artwork, is an entertaining and engaging book for children. As they become young readers, kids will find this a story they can enjoy again and again. Parents can take comfort in the fact that the message of the book is both wholesome and contemporary without being preachy.
"When you melt down all the extraneous details, ultimately at the core of the story is the idea that learning from those who are different from you and accepting those people into society makes you a better person than before you met them. This ideal, I believe, is one of the most important concepts a child should grasp." Alani Indigo Santamarina
Encouragingly, Alani has touched on the areas of conservation of natural resources, fairness, the value of diversity of thought and ability through her fable. Lions, leopards, and other wild cats are used to illustrate the importance of friendship, recognizing injustice, and the need for unity when attempting to change the status quo. As the story progresses, a more subtle lesson emerges that shows that the differences separating you from your enemies are less significant than you may initially believe.
