Children's books that change your child


Pronunciation: \ˌa-fər-ˈmā-shən\

Function: noun

1 a : the act of affirming b : something affirmed : a positive assertion


As adults we strongly believe in the power of affirmations. I wonder if we would need them so badly as adults if we would have heard them as young children... even little babes. When I was still pregnant I knew early on that I wanted to use every moment I could to positively affirm my son. Not because I thought he was ultra special (event tho I do) but because I believe in the power of positive words, packed full of strength and guidance.  I am currently using music and children's books to do this. Here are some of my favorites!

While I still enjoy reading to Parker ">Boom-Chicka-Boom-Boom and Where The Wild Things Are, the following books are truly amazing gifts to share with any child, young or old!

Marianne Richmond is an amazing author. One of her books that I love is Hooray for You- A Celebration of You-ness! Here is simply one line from the book. 'For quite a long time the world saved a place. Millions were born, yet non filled your space...' How about that being said to you every day!


Dr. Wayne Dyer also has some AMAZING books! Please someone rock me everyday and read them to me!!! Unstoppable Me- 10 Ways to Soar Through Life & Incredible You! 10 Ways To Let Your Greatness Shine Through.

Max Lucado's Wemmicks series has four books in it (also a DVD series) with my favorite one being, You Are Special.


The Twelve Gifts of Birth, by Charlene Costanzo. 'The third gift is Courage. May you speak and act with confidence and use courage to follow your own path."


I would love to hear what some of your favorite  children's books are!

My latest favorite of Sophie's is "If Jesus Lived Inside my Heart"...we let Hal borrow it, so I'm not sure who the author is, but her last name is Lord (oddly enough).
