Mumbai: Positive thinking can have a huge impact on the little one’s well-being and self-esteem. Inspired by her one-year-old son, Amrita Aswani, a long-term practitioner of positive affirmations & Founder of Summer Stories released her first book called ‘A to Z Affirmation & Wellness book for kids’.
The affirmation book, which is a hardback of 28 pages, features positive words with all the 26 alphabets A-Z, their meanings and an engaging activity for children, where they get to put in their own affirmations down as per their understanding of these words. All the 26 words, along with a simplified child friendly definition for each word, an example to go with it and relevant pictorial illustration makes the book an engaging and an easy learning tool.
Amrita collaborated with child psychologist Shrradha Sidhwani. to work on the A-to-Z affirmation words along with their meanings. With the help of her affirmations book, this mom and businesswoman is laying the foundation for self-love, self-confidence and self- esteem amongst the kids. The book is targeted at children aged 5-12 but slightly younger children can also use it.
Talking about the book, Amrita said, “I have published a book that helps children to understand the power of words, positive words and affirmation. It helps children to unlock that power within them and be inspired by the most powerful voice in the world – their own! What I want through the book is for every kid to believe in themselves, their abilities and their talent without fears like – I am not good enough, ‘What if I fail? How a child’s mind is fed is what he or she shapes up to be. I feel if a person is trained to think positively, using affirmations early on in life, it will genuinely take them a long way”.
“Some of the words in the book are Focused, Grateful, Confident, Mindful, Brave, Honest, Joyful & Kind. These words are everything you want your child to be. The book acts as a great conversation starter with your child. Each page has a small box posing different questions like – When do you feel brave? When do you feel joyful? What’s your X- factor? You can make them aware of their own abilities through this book. The child can share their multiple experiences with their parents where they felt brave and write down one or two instances. The Affirmation and Wellness book is coupled with affirmation coloring bookmarks which is a fun element added to make the experience more joyful,’’ she added.
A to Z Affirmation & Wellness book for kids is now available through Summer Stories website – www.summerstories.com and will also be available on Amazon, Firstcry, Nestery, My Baby Babbles.
