This book contains snippets of universal age-old wisdom that we need to be reminded of from time to time. Designed for children of all ages to browse through when in need of inspiration and encouragement. Open at random and read a page or two.
I was inspired to produce this book after reading the positive works of Richard Bach, Jack Canfield, Dr Wayne Dyer and Louise Hay. I remember thinking it would be good if these principles were illustrated and targeted to children at a crucial stage of their development. Why wait until middle-age to get motivated?
The aim of my work is to inspire children to understand that more than anything else, their attitudes establish who and what they may become and how happily they can live their lives. It’s not what happens to us, it’s how we allow it to affect us.
