Folotjing! Folotjing! What are you?
Where do you live, and what do you do?
“I’m an itty bitty Dwendi, and I live in a tree.
“I’m as small as a hamster with a little round belly.
“I’m as plump as a cherry and soft as a marshmallow.
“I’m fragrant like a mango, and I’m sharp as an arrow.
“Nature is my mother; I’m the best at what I do.
“My heart is in my garden; I love rainy days too.”
Folotjing the Brave and Kindhearted
( A Children's Picture Book filled with Adventures and Morals )
A hero is not always someone big and powerful. Regardless of how small you are, you can make a massive difference in the world. All that matters is the size of your heart.
Folotjing is a tiny elfin creature of the forest who lives inside an ancient magical tree. This is the story of his adventure in the deep, dark woods when he encounters terrifying beasts that want to eat him. But through his wisdom and the kindness of his heart, he makes them realize the error of their ways and eventually earn their friendship. It shows that compassion is its own reward and that kindness begets a chain of itself.
Folotjing is a true hero despite his size, someone who is brave, kindhearted, and chooses to do the right thing, especially in the face of great difficulty and danger.
How do I pronounce Folotjing?
fall-law-t-jing with the (t) or fall-law-jing without the (t), either way, is correct.
Note to Parents:
For children under the age of seven years old, I kindly suggest that parents assist their child in reading the book. This book contains big words that might be beyond their comprehension, such as magnificent, humility, mending, bullying, and terrorizing, to name a few.
Reading this book to a child opens up a conversation between parents/guardians and children. It presents a valuable opportunity to encourage children to ask meaningful questions and instill a sense of empathy for others going through difficult times. You may also take this chance to explore other subjects that may branch out due to the dialogue.
The story of Folotjing is mainly about compassion and forgiveness and all other virtues that intertwine with love. Folotjing shows that courage fueled by kindness is a potent formula to change the world around us. He demonstrates that no matter how small we are, it's the size of our hearts that matters.
The trap and the fish bone are symbols, demonstrating that danger can come from the least expected places and things. But help is always near those who possess the humility to ask for it and accept it graciously when received.
Folotjing teaches us to be compassionate to the needs of others, that when faced with a fork in the road, we choose the path to kindness.
