Life Lessons

life lessonsWhy do bad things happen to good people? This is what Max, a young boy who comes across a bully at school, ponders in this inspirational fable that holds meaningful life lessons and the power of forgiveness.

This is the premise of the animated film, The Little Soul and the Sun (Waking Up Media), based on the best-selling children’s book by Neale Donald Walsch. Available on DVD, the film brings to life the story of Max who envisions himself as a “Little Soul” who is armed with a loving heart and a mind full of curiosity. Max sets out to learn the true lessons of life and how to overcome difficult obstacles. The DVD features a brief introduction by Neale Donald Walsch, a half-hour animation movie for children, followed by a half hour of reflection by Walsch for parents to share with their children. It promotes dialogue and offers powerful lessons for the young and young at heart. or – Margaret Coventry
