Draw Me Close To You is an emotional and heartfelt story with lifelong lessons for parents and children.
This story is about a boy named Tunde who lived with his father after his mother’s demise . He loves to draw and paint but his father wanted to excel in math and science. His father wanted him to become a Doctor or engineer so one day he scolded him and threw away all his crayons and drawings and it made Tunde very upset. So what happens after that makes me very emotional. Illustrations are so amazing and wonderful which makes this book more beautiful.
We live in a world where parents are told to control and modify their children’s behavior.They are not our property. They belong to themselves, they are human beings like us and we can not control them to be someone that makes us happy and makes us feel better. We are supposed to be the one who helps our kids to be happy. We have to give freedom to our children to choose their career: If we force them to choose a career against their interest, they may never be able to excel in life .
This book is a lifelong lesson for us parents and I must recommend this book to every parent out there. You should read this book with your children and tell them that you are always there with them in any condition or they can talk to you freely because at last what’s most important : to be happy and loved.
