A children's book titled "Belle and Chloe-Reflections in the Mirror", written by Isabela Sardas, Ph.D., addresses the topic of coming to terms with one's scars following a traumatic experience. The protagonists of this book are a pair of identical twins named Chloe and Belle. When you first read about them, they are just like any other young girls who enjoy pranking their teachers by switching identities and spending time with each other. One day Belle had an accident involving a boiling pot of soup, which resulted in her receiving third-degree burns. This book discusses the ways in which the family dealt with the situation while she was getting better and after she had recovered.
This story is about family, love, and a traumatic event that occurred in their lives that altered everything. This book presents both the positive and negative aspects of the scenario; however, the illustrations are age-appropriate for young readers, and the injuries are not depicted in a disturbing manner at any point. The writing is clear and concise, making it simple for the target audience to comprehend, and the illustrations are a great complement to the material presented.
I thought the message behind the story was wonderful, and I think this book will be of great assistance to many children who are going through something similar to what Belle did. I also believe that this book will help family members understand what their child may be going through and that it will help them deal with a family member who is going through a situation similar to the one described in this book.
This book gets 5 out of 5 stars from me because I couldn't find a single thing to criticise about it. The book was simple to comprehend, and the illustrations were enjoyable. The conclusion took me by surprise, and it even brought a tear to my eye. In addition, I was unable to locate any errors, leading me to believe that the book has been edited to perfection.
I highly recommend that children as well as the members of their family read this book because it assists children in comprehending the feelings that they are experiencing in the aftermath of a traumatic event, and it also assists family members in comprehending what their child or other member of the family may be going through and how to assist them in dealing with the situation.
