I Create My World: A Book of Affirmations For Grandchildren
We receive lots of books to review here at GRAND Magazine. Most of them are pretty darned good, but once in a while, one comes along that is so special, we can’t wait to tell our grandparent readers all about it. One such book is I Create My World: The Power of Thought to Shape Our Lives by author and illustrator, Connie Bowen. This book was released on the heels of the success of her last children’s affirmation book I Believe In Me which was recently named by the Huffington Post as one of “50 Inspiring Children’s Books with a Positive Message.”
We all know that children are daily exposed to so much negative news and they’re helpless against this media barrage, so we really liked the idea of a book of affirmations for them. It’s never too early to start giving children empowering thoughts that will build their self-esteem. Connie Bowen has chosen great affirmations for children such as, “I am blessed with my own special talents and gifts,” and paired each affirmation with unique, colorful illustrations. Your grandchild is sure to enjoy each drawing all by itself as each is packed with many things to enjoy.
The author has made it even more interactive by placing an item from each illustration above the affirmation so your grandchild can have fun hunting for the hidden objects.
Here is what Michael Bernard Beckwith (see cover story of Michael in the issue of GRAND Magazine) had to say: “What Connie so inspiringly offers to children in this book honors and illuminates the core essence of every child’s inner greatness. If children were raised with such affirmation, what a healthy start they would have in life. I purchased this book for all my grandchildren. And parents, too will benefit from the wisdom on its pages.”
The book is available in hardcover and kindle. You can take a look at the cover and inside pages as well as order the book here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/0985692219
