The Story of a Fresh Start
Territory Rights — Worldwide excluding Canada.
After being sent to bed early the previous night, Melena wakes up to a new day with a song in her heart.
Forgive and be forgiven. It sounds so appealing—why doesn’t it happen every day? Finding herself forgiven on a rain-scrubbed morning after a difficult day, Melena seizes her fresh start and shares the song in her heart with her family and friends. It’s a day of new beginnings. It’s Melena’s jubilee. This story introduces children to the concept of jubilee, which stresses the important principles of debt relief, generosity and forgiveness. Aaron Boyd’s mixed-media illustrations are as bright and vivid as a sun-washed day.
