Here’s what I love about this book: 

  • Love the message of the power of kids’ thoughts & words.
  • Colorful whimsical artwork invites kids (and adults) to look at the details and explore imaginative possibilities.
  • The affirmations are short & kid-friendly.
  • The large text font is easy to read and consistently placed on the left side of each 2-page spread.
  • The text and illustrations are free from any religious connotations.
  • The final page of the book invites kids to look through the book again for particular details (a great touch for older kids).

  1. This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the 2 winning entries:

    Grand Prize Winner (book + 5 affirmation notecards): Amanda Gamble in Indiana: “As a school psychologist and yoga teacher, I love finding ways to help children. Sometimes all it takes to make a difference is a positive statement, kind words, or just being that someone who listens. This book would be a great way for me to share those positive affirmations with children and teach them ways to be positive about their own lives. With so many negative things in the world, children need to know how to look for the good in themselves and in others. With this book, I could help teach children to be their own cheerleader and share that with others!”

    2nd place winner: Patricia Fenton in Rhode Island: “I am an Elementary Teacher and Tutor with young children and your book would be such an inspiring resource for them! My specialty is reading/language arts and I have found the use of positive affirmations so important for encouraging children. They need to believe in themselves and to know that they are special and capable of wonderful things! Thank you so much for doing this and hopefully I will be chosen to win a copy of your inspiring book!

    Thanks to every one who participated! It was heart warming to read all 35 entries. Be watching for another review / giveaway on OMazing Kids soon 🙂
