Desire is very real...and in this book, it's even a character. Children are pretty clear about what they like and what they don't like. Consider that not long after they learn to talk, they find their voice, and use it - forcefully and often relentlessly - to make their desires known. This really is a wonderful thing. It is the life force inside of them wanting to survive and thrive. Perhaps it's time to give Desire its rightful place on the list of things we want our children to value, to understand and to learn how to use.
With that in mind, Seven Circles of Light not only makes Desire one of its recurring themes, but also gives it an upgrade and makes the concept a character. What kind of character? Well, just like the concept, Sharp Desire the character, is persuasive It's constantly inspiring the other characters to expand their experience and to reach for more. Like the realities of Time and Change...Desire is not going away. It has to be acknowledged and understood for what it is, a very powerful force.
Big ideas for little kids. Seven Circles of Light is about the journey, and suggests that life is a spiritual one. Is that too much for children to ponder?

Taking its cue from their questions, Seven Circles of Light offers some playful perspectives on ideas like life, death and eternity, and takes a new look at feelings and emotions, friendships of the heart, connections of the soul, passionate desires, and the restorative power of nature. It suggests to children that their happiness is very important and pretty much up to them.
