I came across this moving, encouraging, and inspiring picture book “Zero” by Kathryn Otoshi by accident at my kid’s school event.
The story goes that Zero was feeling empty hole in the middle. And with much encouragment from other numbers, she found that she has value and ways to join counting with other numbers.
This story is so encouraging because it shows how to take a look at yourself in different perspective. It emphasizes that everyone has value and has something to add to the group.
Even if you feel like there is nothing worthy you can offer to the world or you feel like you don’t count, let’s take another look. You will find that that the exact thing you thought worthless can turn out to be the most valueable thing within you.
