Luna Finds Love Everywhere



In Luna Finds Love Everywhere, little Luna takes the reader through her typical day, from breakfast to a family trip to the park to playing with friends to an unexpected rainstorm.  A disappointment with her friends caused her to recall the bubble breathing technique her mom had taught her to help get over upset feelings.  Luna was disappointed the rainstorm ruined her playtime at the park.  Her mother encouraged Luna to look for the love around her.  As she noticed the many ways her family members showed love, Luna became happy again.  She even recognized her favorite way to show love—giving big hugs to the people she loved.    


Dr. Shainna Ali is the author of this story that was just released this month.  She is a mental health clinician, educator, and advocate, who is dedicated to highlighting the role of mental health in promoting happiness, fulfillment, and overall wellness. She has a counseling and consulting practice in Florida, where she lives with her son and her partner.


Illustrator Catarina Oliveira is from Portugal and is based in Toronto, Canada.  She is a freelance graphic designer who specializes in children’s books.


Teachers and counselors will find this story good to use with kindergarten through second grade children.  I like how the author has tucked questions throughout the story to help the reader or listeners to think about or relate to what Luna was feeling.

  1. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of theliver already present. I started on antiviral medications whichreduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virusbecame resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment fromULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Theirtreatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test afterthe 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazingtreatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
