Author and illustrator, Connie Bowen, has just released a new hardcover children’s affirmation book entitled, “I Create My World: The Power of Thought to Shape Our Lives: A Book of Affirmations.” 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.” I was provided with a copy of the children’s book, I Create My World, in order to facilitate a review and giveaway.
Daily Affirmations For Children In Inspiring Book Format
I liked the idea of a book of affirmations for children because it is great to start filling their heads with 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 child is sure to enjoy each drawing all by itself as each is packed with many things to look at. The author has made it even more interactive by placing an item from each illustration above the affirmation so your child can have fun hunting for the the hidden objects.
Are you wondering what affirmations are and why they are important? Well as Louise Hay says, “Every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation. All of our self-talk, our internal dialogue, is a stream of affirmations. You’re using affirmations every moment whether you know it or not. You’re affirming and creating your life experiences with every word and thought.” So a book of positive affirmations for children helps them to think good thoughts. It trains their mind to empower themselves, to believe in themselves, and to select good habits.
I Create My World: The Power of Thought to Shape Our Lives
Even my eight year old, who is on the slightly older side for this book, loved it. She enjoyed hunting for the hidden pictures and pointing out interesting things about each painting. I enjoyed reading my six and eight year old the affirmations. We all enjoyed discussing with them what they though they meant and the affirmations pertained to them. They both enjoyed the ending page of the book that has added discussion points and hidden objects to find. My kids love to read and be read to and I love that I Create My World shares positive lessons and ideas with every reading.
The book of affirmations for children, I Create My World, is endorsed by Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Life Visioning, as follows:
“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.”
It is available in hardcover and kindle.
