The Future Is Ours to Shape TodayJune 1, 2015The concept of this book feels a bit too much like a way to plug Disney-themed things, like the Tomorrowland ride at Disneyworld being a hidden passage to the alternate dimension that is the Tomorrowland of this story. Or how Walt was one of the geniuses involved with Tomorrowland…a genius on par with the likes of Einstein, Edison, and Tesla? Disney fans and kids alike will likely love these allusions. It’s just not something I particularly enjoy. What I liked about the book is the underlying message: We manifest our destiny. If we focus on doom, doom is what we shall have. All it takes is hope and putting that hope into action. This is a pretty heavy concept for a kid to process, so wrapping it in a sci-fi veneer helps the message take hold on a subconscious level.
