Nourishing Souls is offering our readers a giveaway of 3 copies of the children’s book I Love Me! and a pen, a value of $25.
I Love Me! is a children’s book of affirmations to strengthen, nourish, and build self confidence in children of all ages.
From our reviewer, Joella at Fine and Fair:
I Love Me! by Summer Joy of Nourishing Souls is a children’s book inspired by the author’s realization that the power of affirmations can be transformative for children. Summer Joy set out to create a book filled with simple but powerful phrases to help children build confidence in themselves. The author’s passion for holistic health and nutrition extend beyond her debut book; she also offers Health Coaching Services to help others achieve and maintain healthy lifestyle balance.
The first thing that struck me about I Love Me! is its simplicity. While brief in length, its 10 pages pack a lot of power! On each page, one short but meaningful phrase provides a positive affirmation and includes messages of love, safety, health, confidence, creativity, and peace. Rather than distracting illustrations that might detract from the focus on affirmations, each page is decorated with colorful handprints, painted by the author’s children, images that all children can relate to! The final page, with the affirmation “I Love Me!” leaves space for your child to draw or paint his or her own handprint, allowing them to personalize the book and truly make it their own.
As someone who uses positive affirmations both for my own personal wellbeing and with the clients I counsel, I love that this book provides an early introduction to the practice of positive affirmations. The short, simple phrases are easy for young children to repeat and memorize. On the first reading, my three year old enthusiastically repeated each phrase when I paused after reading it. When we finished the book, she sighed happily, turned to me and said “That’s a nice book, Mama!” She regularly pulls the book out and requests to read it, and I am starting to hear her say the affirmations to herself as she goes about her day. There’s nothing quite like hearing your preschooler state matter-of-factly “I am Healthy!” or “I am Strong!”
While the short length of the book makes it easy for young children to stay interested, my only complaint about this book is that is isn’t just a little bit longer. It’s a very quick read, and including just a few more simple affirmations would have been perfect. The book is of high quality and is professionally printed, making it an excellent value for the price. I plan to purchase a supply of copies to have on hand to give as gifts to all of the children in my life, from babies through school age!
