“I AM a Lovable ME! is a personal empowerment series for children that provide building blocks in lifting their self esteem to soaring heights. The affirmation is delightfully light without being heavy handed, which is truly important for younger children. Having said that, even the ten 8-year-olds who read them loved the books…that says it all!”

“Wow, I am amazed with this affirmation book! It is perfect- and so useful for the children. The affirmations you included touch upon EVERYTHING and in such a real way for the kids- I laughed a lot of times too! You cover everything- from drinking fresh water to pretending, creativity to being balanced and loving- its impressive!
As I was reading, I could see my kids in yoga class chanting the affirmations out loud – all ages for sure! I can see the kids becoming inspired to draw their own affirmations. I see posters- (I want one for the studio!!) I think you really have a great product here-and you certainly have my support!
Thank you again for including me in the sneak preview to such an amazing literary tool. It’s tremendous, Sharon! I feel really good about this one!”

This one will become a favorite with the captivating bug that delivers catchy rhymes about the wonderful person they need to believe they are.

“After years of teaching and experimenting with many different “discipline programs,” I have come to the realization that the only discipline that truly works is self-discipline. In my 2nd grade classroom I have a “self-reflection” corner where my students are encouraged to excuse themselves at any time they feel they need to “take a Deep Breath.”
At the beginning of the year I introduce Ms. Penchina and Dr. Hoffman’s book of the same title and we have a lively discussion listing all the times when taking a deep breath would be helpful. By the middle of the year, my students will occasionally walk over to self-reflection, pick up “I Take A Deeep Breath,” reread it, practice their balloon belly breathing, and come back to the classroom calm and refocused.
We also use the CD throughout the year to reinvigorate what we already know! It is truly gratifying to see my students taking responsibility for their own feelings and reactions…and know that it will carry with them throughout their entire lives.”
