Share Article

Author Karen Mack’s new lesson-filled picture storybook on nature, life, death, and more

Written to inspire and pique children’s interest, these stories share the wonderful magic of sunlight and its effects on people’s spirits and daily lives. The author, Karen Mack, wrote these episodes of The Magical Adventures of Sun Beams back in 1990 – and these are given life through the vibrant characters and vividly colored illustrations of Russel Wayne. Although the author passed away in 2005, she has definitely left a beautiful legacy behind for her nephew and four nieces, parents, educators, and concerned citizens of the world.

The glowing and stunning colors of Sun Beams bring smiles to children’s face as they follow them in their adventures. The family of light beams – Father Beam, Mother Beam, Sky Blue, and Bubblegum Pink – will take everyone traveling, learning, and discovering from their planet, Mirros, to the far away planet, Earth. These radiant characters have captivated the magic, the mystery, the whimsical fun, and the resounding love for the Sun. Life would have been so dull without the colors painted in the sky and the Sun Beams will prove it once again through these brilliantly woven chapters. Featuring amazing illustrations and colorful images, The Magical Adventures of Sun Beams will revive one’s interest in loving, respecting, and preserving planet Earth.

Children can follow the Sun Beams as they show where they come from, where they live, how they emit colors, how they travel through light, how they value the Sun, how they plan to help Earth, and more. Evenhumans have their own colors – light bodies – and it’s time everyone takes care of it and this planet. The Sun Beams impart valuable lessons on life, the environment, death, people, and more. Bright light beams surround children whatever season or time of day when they immerse themselves in The Magical Adventures of Sun Beams.

This book will be featured at this year’s California Library Book Exhibit in Pasadena, CA on November 11 to 14, 2011.
