My sister is a Hospice nurse. Several months ago, she gave her copy of The Secret Kingdom to one of her patients: a 90-year-old man who loves poetry.
She tells me that this gentleman reads The Secret Kingdom every night before he goes to bed, and often has her read the entire book aloud to him during her visits. He shares The Secret Kingdom with everyone he knows – from family members to the CNA who comes to help him bathe.
When my sister told me this, I was practically speechless…
When she showed me this picture, I was moved to tears.
Truly, art is for everyone, and The Secret Kingdom is a place that welcomes children of all ages.
