PHP 289 (Powerbooks)
Beautifully written by master storyteller Jerry Spinelli, Stargirl is a tale of courage, of hope, of belief. Set in the small town of Mica and told from the eyes of Leo Borlock , it shows us the reality of the much coveted "popularity" and what we really should aspire for in life. It's the kind of book that makes you stop for a moment and think of your priorities. It's also the kind of book that makes you believe in love again.
Hope for the Flowers by Trina Paulus
PHP 195 (NBS)
Who would have thought that this quirky yellow book is not an ordinary novel for children? Indeed, a prompt look at it may deceive a reader with its bright colored cover and illustrated pages, but there's more to this book than just colors and pictures. It tackles the struggles of two caterpillars, Stripe and Yellow, as they search for what really matters in their lives. Their story of hope can be an inspiration to all ages, as it reflects the reality of human life and the trials that a person has to go through as one reaches his goal. The main characters show us that it is inherent to commit mistakes, as long as one learns from his mistakes. Some other values you can get from their story are: patience, humility, and self-control. If you're looking for an inspirational book that you can read for just about 15-30 minutes, then Hope for the Flowers is a perfect find for you!
