I was sent this lovely Book (with a lovely personal message from the author Jaylen Grace; thank you very much and great pen) called Omzak the Space Cat Warrior RRP £10.99 for a hardback. I think it was for my children to read but unfortunately for them I got my hands on it first. I did originally intend to read it with/to my five year old. It did start that way but think it was a bit bigger than books he has been reading and found it a bit daunting. But by this point I had really got into it and so the poor children really didn’t get a look in.
I like how the Chapters were never too long – I think this is crucial to help encourage some children to read, as they feel they are getting somewhere, or can read in small doses.
As a parent I loved this book’s educational factor for children – such as introducing them to the story of David and Goliath – even I learnt that Fos is the Greek word for light! It reminded me of Sophie’s World but for a younger, less complicated, audience in that it dropped in snippets of knowledge through the use of story.
Jaylen Grace is a lifecoach and this is truly reflected in Omzak the Space Cat Warrior as she passes on some valuable lessons to children – without them even probably realising that she is doing so. In fact I think a few adults could also benefit from developing their own Mantra.
The self-development, the relationships, the life lessons – it’s all in there – through a simple story of a Space Cat Warrior sent down to Earth.
I certainly do recommend this book for a variety of ages – younger children may struggle with some of the vocabulary, but will still enjoy the story and the lessons. I’m an adult and I certainly enjoyed reading it.
This would make a lovely Christmas Present.
