About the Book
The Blue, Blue Sky is a collection of stories written for children, but also carefully crafted by author Diana Donald – a psychotherapist, devoted mother, and grandmother – to speak to the five-year-old within all readers, young or old. Here is Diana’s powerful and emotional description of the book:
The theme in these simple stories is pure love … the kind that gives meaning to our lives on the inside … on the inside where the center of our world resides.
These stories have a compelling need to let children know they are filled with their own innate wisdom, tucked deep inside. They touch that still small voice, that we hear so often to remind us we’re never alone. These stories also give us a glimpse into the depth of our imagination which takes us to wherever we want to be, Imagination sees needs being met so that no one or no place can ever be too far away. Imagination opens our hearts so that we can look with love.
Our still small voice … our angel within … comes in any form we’ll accept and speaks to us in many ways … colours, sounds and feelings. Any presence that gives us a feeling of love is our angel inside. It could be the wind rustling in the trees in the middle of the night, a bell pealing in the distance, the breeze through your hair or that flower that speaks only to you. If you look the right way you’ll see them everywhere, they don’t always have wings. They give you the confidence to be as important as you truly are.
These little stories are asking you to understand that the sense of belonging has nothing to do with other people. It’s all about how unique and singular we truly are and what we carry around within.
