All kids need friends. So, to have friends, kids need to learn to be a good friend. Parents, teachers, and family friends can teach “friendship skills” by helping the child become more compassionate and avoid the behaviors that deter “friend making.”

Happy To Be Me: A Kid's Book About Self-esteem
Helping children develop good self esteem means helping them to be themselves. It means letting them know how loved and cherished they are--just because of who they are.

The elfin friends in this book lead the young reader through a process of self-discovery: exploring uniqueness, building a healthy self-image, and preparing for challenging situations.

Every child in the world is special, gifted, and wonderful. And each one deserves to feel "happy to be me." This honest and upbeat Kids Book about Self-esteem brings real help and understanding.

Worry, Worry Go Away!

All kids experience worries. Helping children understand what worry is , where it comes from, and how to challenge it, is the first steop in overcoming anxiety. The little elves in this book help children to learn to STOP, to THINK TWICE, and see their worries for what they are.

This book presents new ways of evaluating and overcoming the psychological, spiritual, and physical dimensions of fear. It helps children find the confidence and courage to say, "Worry, Worry Go Away!"

Gratitude Therapy - One of my earliest Elf Help books. Look to see it back in print soon!

Gratitude is a way out of difficulty, pain and isolation. In the face of adversity and distress, gratitude requires us to turn our will over to God - or to give up our own ideas about what is happening to us. In His greater plan, there is something you may not be aware of yet. Gratitude deepens the colorful fabric of our lives by allowing us to see the larger picture. Remember everything that happens to us is a lesson that God would have us learn.
