“The moment that you stop believing in yourself, you give up on yourself” (Eeha Bhatt)
Moby Plays the Flute is an amazing book with a powerful message, do NOT stop believing in yourself, and do NOT give up when life gets tough, you CAN do hard things! This book spoke to my heart today because it reminded me of my childhood and how far I have come in life. I struggled with school from elementary through high school, especially with learning how to read and anything to do with math. Without the help of amazing teachers and professors, I would have given up. I am so happy that I did not give up on reading, even though it was hard. It is now one of my favorite pastimes and ended up becoming part of my profession as a school librarian. As much as the message of this book spoke to me as an adult, I wish I could have read it as a child. This is such a beautifully encouraging children’s book.
Hi-lights that I love from Moby Plays the Flute:

– The messages within the book… There are SO many! Hard work pays off, persevere even if something is hard, believe in yourself, and put effort into everything you do. “Effort comes from strong determination, having a goal, and putting in hard work. All of this is ignited by believing in yourself” (Eeha Bhatt).
-The back matter of the book includes all of the messages found within the book and are great discussion points with children. There are a few fun facts and activities included in the back matter as well.
