Bob Rich reviews Lucky G and the Melancholy Quokka

I have reviewed several other therapeutic children’s books published by Loving Healing Press, so my expectations were high. I was not disappointed by Lucky G and the Melancholy Quokka

Aimed at 5-8 year old children with diagnosable depression, this little book has two components: first the illustrated story with rhyming couplets simple enough for a Grade 3 child to read, and for all to enjoy when read by an adult; then a section for parents that is scientifically accurate, in plain language. This part addresses several myths without lecturing, and lists relevant resources within the USA.

The illustrations are delightful, and will be enjoyed by any kid. The characters are a wise raven (with a Ph.D. no less), and several Australian native animals who interact in a very human way that should a raise laugh by both parents and children.

Lucky G and the Melancholy Quokka is not actually a therapeutic book. Rather, in both the story and the parents’ component, it educates about depression, destigmatizes mental illness, and encourages people to seek professional help. It informs the reader about the symptoms, and motivates parents to act.

I can thoroughly recommend this fun little book.

Getting Inside the Mind of Nature: Discover the simple but powerful mathematics of the underlying geometric figures that shape our world

Can geometry be exciting?

It can for those who can appreciate the beauty of numbers and their relationships.

This book contains a meticulous geometric investigation of the 5 Platonic Solids and 5 other important polyhedra, as well as reference charts for each solid.

Poly (many) hedron (face) means “many faces.” Polyhedra are 3 dimensional figures with 4 or more faces, or sides. These polyhedra are reflections of Nature herself, and a study of them provides insight into the way the world is structured. Nature is not only beautiful, but highly intelligent. As you explore the polyhedra in this book, this will become apparent over and over again.

The book contains a geometric explanation of the Phi Ratio and Fibonacci series, and a detailed analysis of the pentagon, which forms the basis for many of these solids. The pentagon is composed entirely of Phi relationships, and is integral to a proper understanding of sacred geometry.

With over 140 full-color illustrations, this book is perfect for teachers and students of geometry alike. It is a must for those who are serious about sacred geometry.

This book is dedicated to those who can appreciate the logic of numbers and the beauty of nature, for they are both aspects of the same unifying principle.

Prerequisites: knowledge of simple algebra and elementary trigonometry. No brainiac math skills required! Only the ability to appreciate nature's own logic.
