Raakhee Mirchandani (@Raakstar) joins the podcast to share SUPER SATYA SAVES THE DAY. When readers meet Satya, the story’s namesake, we have only to take Satya at her word that her beloved cape makes her super. Unfortunately, her cape is still at the dry cleaners and Satya will need to face a day of school without it. Lots of things go wrong for Satya, leading the reader to acknowledge alongside Satya that maybe this cape really does contain some super special powers. Or maybe what we all need is a chance to step back and reframe these circumstances with a fresh perspective. Raakhee has poured a whole lot of love and truth-seeing into her debut and it translates to a story that meets children where they are, makes space for them to feel and believe whatever they choose, and is there to celebrate the child’s affirmation of their inner strength and fortitude. In short, we need a whole lot more people like Raakhee in front of children. Lucky us, we have this beautiful book.
