By Manbeena Anand on September 1, 2020
Fauja Singh Keeps Going is such a perfect book for children (and adults). It includes new and thoughtful ideas, the struggles that life brings, and the joy of overcoming those struggles. It reminds children that while life may be tough at times, there's nothing they can't overcome with belief in themselves, and with love from family and friends.
This is an inspiring and heart-warming read that helps children recognize the reality that life is hard, but that's why they must keep going. It quite literally shows how success isn't in the destination, but in the journey itself. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
