The Silver family is wealthy, but their money can’t fix the dysfunction that tears at eleven-year-old Rebecca, who endures her parents’ emotional battles and the physical and verbal abuse of her older sister. In response, Rebecca hunches over, tightening and over-contracting the muscles on the right side of her body. Over time, this has caused her spine to curve in unhealthy directions, creating pressure on her nervous system and wreaking havoc on her immune system. She also turns to the comfort of food. Rebecca’s life changes dramatically when she encounters the nature spirits of the sky, who help humans find peace and health. With their help, Rebecca learns how to heal herself from verbal, food, and techno abuse. She empowers her mind, body, spirit, and nervous system with healthy foods, thoughts, breaths, and postures, and she becomes healthier and happier-allowing her to take on her mission: saving the children and the planet. Wind Kissed is an entertaining and educational fantasy novel that will empower young readers to look up at life, look up from technology, and make healthy, peaceful choices.
Wind Kissed by Dr. Lynn Ann Migdal, isn’t the kind of book that I would pick up, but since I had the opportunity to receive a free copy of it and review it, I decided to give it a shot. I was actually quite surprised by how much I liked it. Wind Kissed is juvenile fiction, that is trying to spread the message of a healthier and happier life. Now, I do personally believe that Migdal tried to push some of her messages a little bit too much onto the children who read Wind Kissed. I personally feel that she shouldn’t be pushing the ideas of children changing their diets, and if she wanted to get that message across, she should be writing for the parents. Honestly, I think that was my biggest issue with the book.
Overall, Migdal did a great job with spreading the message of a healthier and happier life. I feel that children who read Wind Kissed will definitely take something from the story, whether it is to remember to stay positive, improve their posture, or trying their best to make other people feel better about themselves. I could see Elementary School teachers having a copy of this book in their classrooms and reading it to their classes, and the students enjoying it.
MIgdal did a great job with taking the realistic aspects of everyday life, and mixing it with this magical world up in the sky that she had created. By using both of these aspects in Wind Kissed she is able to grab the attention of the readers, and keep it for the whole story. Kids, will love it, but as someone who is 23 years old I at times did find it a bit silly as it seemed a bit over the top.
I am giving Wind Kissed by Dr. Lynn Migdal 3/5 stars.
About the Author:
Hi, this is Dr. Lynn Ann Migdal writing these words and hoping that when you are reading these words that your neck is in a neutral posture (chin off of your throat), your shoulders are back, down and relaxed and your computer and or phone is at eye level. When you are choosing these healthy postures, you are increasing your ability to fully inflate your lungs, increasing oxygen levels and your brain’s ability to communicate with your organs and cells.
I have been a Doctor of Chiropractic for over 34 years now and the reason I wrote “Wind Kissed” was to help shift the consciousness of our world back to a place of health and peace. I got tired of watching toddlers and children compressing their neck and brainstems while using their mother’s cellphones or tablets and knew I had to do something to help our children and future generations to express higher levels of “Holistic Fitness”.
Chemical, Emotional and Physical Fitness are all important to health yet our society seems to be forgetting how important our Spine, Breath, and Nervous Systems are. Wind Kissed is a juvenile fantasy that can help all ages to Look Up at Life, Look Up from Technology and to Dance the Breath of Health, Peace and Love back into the winds of our world!
