Colourful story: Deb Lovestone reads her newly published book Rainbow Wakes Up

New author Deb Lovestone has created a colourful, imaginative book called Rainbow Wakes Up.

“Follow along as the rainbow colours come alive to reveal who they are and what their special purpose is on earth,” says Lovestone. “Each fun, vibrant, colourful character represents a colour of the rainbow that is related to a chakra in the human body.”

Lovestone says these energy centres are explained in a fun and informative way to introduce the meaning of love and generosity to young children.

Along with teaching colours, the book teaches about love, joy, happiness, being yourself, feelings, speaking your truth and knowing we have angels to guide us, she adds.

“Each character portrays a quality of each chakra,  so in that way, it teaches them how to empower themselves,” Lovestone says, pointing out the book is aimed at children from about ages three to seven or eight.

Lovestone says inspiration for the book came in 2007, but the timing wasn’t right.

The heart chakra was the first to emerge and  Lovestone drew her with a wild hairdo.

“Aleksina Teto, a local artist, took her and created something presentable,” laughs Lovestone, who says the names of the characters simply arrived the same way the idea for the book did.

“I got the idea of the characters and Aleksina was able to take my vision and put it into a colourful design.”

Lovestone says each of the characters could easily have a book of their own, something she intends to pursue.

“The reception I got from everybody I have contacted is amazing, and I’ve just begun,” she adds of her efforts to introduce the book to the community.

The book will be available at Bookingham Palace, The Book Nook, Hidden Gems and Spirit Quest.

Rainbow Wakes Up will also be available from Amazon Canada by mid-December.

Lovestone’s first book-signing will be at The Book Nook on Hudson Avenue from noon to 3 p.m., Friday, Dec. 11. Rainbow Wakes Up sells for $14.
