Crescendo The Blessing Ball



        "While reading The Blessing Ball for the first time, my over-riding sentiment was, "Where has this treasure been hidden and how fortunate for all of us that it has been found!"

        Angeleah and Ashley present the challenge to be actively grateful in a world that most often leaves us wanting. With spectacular illustrations that at once mesmerize and inspire, I feel privileged to have witnessed the presentation of this soon-to-be beloved addition to every child's bedside table. 


        Angeleah, you have created a masterpiece with the gifts you have been given, and now we all get a peek into the unseen lands, where thankfulness leads. 


        Thank you for not giving up on us!"

- Jennifer Tunney, mom of three

        "You want to cultivate more gratitude in your home … but, how to find the time? How to get the kids excited about gratitude? How to add one more thing into the day? 


        The Blessing Ball by Angeleah Donahue is the answer! In this beautiful book, children become excited to develop a gratitude practice that will serve them for years to come.


        Donahue weaves gratitude into an engaging bedtime story, centered around that fantastical world of Brightland. This world is beautifully illustrated and provides a depth to the story that one would expect to find in a movie, but rarely sees in a storybook. My own two children were enamored by Brightland and quickly began relating their own feelings of gratitude to those of the main character.  


        As a former Elementary School Teacher and a current Mindfulness and Positive Discipline Educator, it is refreshing to see a story that is not only engaging, but also promotes an essential life skill such as gratitude. Gratitude is scientifically proven to boost self-esteem, promote a better night’s sleep, enhance empathy, and improve psychological health. All children and adults will benefit from this book. A must read for every family!"

- Laura Knight, Parenting and Mindfulness Teacher

        "I am a third grade teacher and my students ask me every day to read them more of this wonderful story. The message it sends about gratitude and counting your blessings has helped us talk through the difficult time we are going through right now.


        After reading only a few pages, one of my students said “Changing the way we look at things makes us happier and feel better, and that helps make the people around us feel better’s like a chain reaction.”

        I am thankful for a story that acknowledges fear and anxiety, while encouraging mindfulness and reflection. The illustrations make this story come to life and are truly captivating. Every page gets studied before turned.


        In our classroom we have “rules to live by” and another student said we should add “count your blessings” to the list. We shall! Thank you to Angel and Ashley for giving me another book I will read year after year with students and my own children. Can’t wait for the next one!"

- Diana B, 3rd Grade Teacher
