''A long-time spiritual teacher known worldwide, Jacobson labored for three years (for some very good reasons) to create this simple yet ''cut-to-the-core'' masterpiece - and, in the process, mastered the literary art of appealing to both adults and children. Fantastically illustrated by Fiammetta Dogi, the big, bright paintings nearly jump out and draw the reader into a world within a world. The deeper beauty, though, is how the message is lyrically worded, and how the artwork helps to further enliven the flowing language, virtually embuing the sentences with the very emotions Jacobson probably felt while writing them.'' --Jim Calabrese, Creations Magazine
''As an adult and a professional who works with children with special needs, I thought In Search of the Light by Leonard Jacobson was a remarkably creative and powerful story with a profound message about life told in a way that preschoolers could understand and that could lift the spirits of many little soul. The images that Jacobson uses to tell his story by illustrator Fiammetta Dogi are unbelievably creative and, at times, whimsical! It is truly is a beautiful story to help children learn about the peace within each of us.'' --Renee Lajiness-O'Neil, Ph.D., Clinical Neuropsychologist, Associate Professor of Psychology, Michigan
''The writing is engaging and manages to convey a complex idea in simple terms. Dogi's illustrations are lively and engaging; each page is filled with the little things children love to discover in the pages of their favorite books. There is even a superhero - Frederick Firefly. At the end of the story, you just want to give someone a hug.'' --Anna Jedrziewski, New Age Retailer, New York
