There is something to appreciate about faith, peace and love, all traits of the author that you don't often see in people today. Her beliefs, her words, her story brings great hope to my heart and my world. There is so much negativity that leaves the world a dark and gloomy place, but Phyllis Reid encourages, sunshine and rainbows, a world I thought existed only in my head alone. A true hope for our future, a true hope for our children, a dream come true... the powerful message that is "One Diverse Universe".

About the One Diverse Universe:
Our children are like vaults in which we store the precious virtues of family, race, culture, country, and the hopes and dreams of humankind for our world tomorrow Children live what they learn from their worlds everywhere around them.
One Diverse Universe offers from the tapestry of life woven in the universe around them, concepts of peace, unity, harmony and diversity to give wings to their minds. These concepts are tools they will need to navigate and thrive in their world tomorrow. The mission is to stimulate their minds and empower them as they grow forward.
As parents, grand parents, relatives, teachers, mentors, nurturers and communities, it is incumbent upon us to pass on to children the knowledge and treasured goodness in people regardless of race, color, religion or nationality. Let us reshape and transform their minds to become what we deem missing in our world today. Let us teach them love instead of hate; trust instead of fear; unity, harmony and peace instead of separation, war and differences.
We owe them lifetimes of good. Let us give them One Diverse Universe with the hope of giving not just a book but a treasure trove of dreams of goodness, greatness, compassion, creativity and love to fill their lives and communities now and forever.

Opinion from Immutable Ramblings
One Diverse Universe, a book geared toward children provides a message that can be shared with children, teens, young adults and adults alike. A message that can and should spread like wildfire, a powerful and expressive view of positive children with enormously great morals and values, instilled by their parents and strengthened by their friendship, their unity, their commonality amongst their "brothers and sisters". I take away from this book a message instilled in my heart that speaks volumes what faith, unity, peace and love can achieve, how having positive surroundings can do nothing but improve the world around you.
One Diverse Universe is a story about a group of children who are enjoying a day together at the park, they encounter a negative event and attempt to intervene out of the goodness of their hearts. They explore what all the aspects of life and living things have in common, how one can't be without the other, how when there is one there is the other, like brothers and sisters, they all go hand in hand. The book has beautiful, bright, vivid colorful graphics that depict one world, animals, people from all nationalities all around the world, the differences that the world houses, diversity shall not divide, we shall accept the diversity and unite as one! I can't express it enough how powerful the message was, I envision this book helping so many people in crisis and in conflict, a softer message to reach children, teens and yes, even adults.
"Accept, respect, spread peace and love..." because "the answer is one, oneness; we are all one, one God, one universe, one world, one family of man." Thank you to Phyllis Reid (and Irene Watson) for sharing One Diverse Universe with me and allowing me to spread the message to my readers.
