New author Deb Lovestone, of Salmon Arm, has created the book Rainbow Wakes Up.

“Follow along as the rainbow colours come alive to reveal who they are and what their special purpose is on earth,” said 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.

She will be in Vernon Saturday, signing copies of her book at Vernon Teach and Learn, on 30th Avenue, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

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 added.

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

Lovestone said inspiration for the book came in 2007, but the timing to write it wasn’t right then.

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,” said 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 said 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 in Vernon at Vernon Teach and Learn and Expressions of Time.

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