I believe that you cannot start early enough to teach the essential lessons of living a successful and peaceful life.
– Dr. Wayne Dyer in the introduction to his children’s book Incredible You
Well said, Dr. Dyer!
Admittedly, Dr. Dyer’s inspirational books for adults are not for everyone. After all, he did voluntarily rid himself of all possessions and live in silence for a year. We might admire his strength and courage, but not many of us can relate with such a deep commitment to learning the benefits of stillness. Some might even call it a bit “strange.”
When it comes to his children’s books, however, the spiritually squeamish have nothing to fear. His concepts are very much down to earth.
Both books featured here include 10 important life lessons. Unstoppable Me, for instance, reminds us that it doesn’t matter if people think we’re strange. (Phew!)
Note: Wayne Dyer clearly has the successful, peaceful life to prove it!
Written by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer with Kristina Tracy. Illustrated by Melanie Siegel.
Based on his earlier work, 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace.
Teaches children they have everything they need within themselves to create happy, successful lives. Includes lessons such as:
- the power of your thoughts,
- visualizing your dreams, and
- celebrating individuality.
Written by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer with Kristina Tracy. Illustrated by Stacy Heller Budnick.
Based on his earlier work, What Do You Really Want for Your Children.
Reinforces no-limit thinking with lessons such as:
- the value of taking risks,
- dealing with stress and anxiety, and
- learning to enjoy each moment.
What I love most about these books is that they include discussion questions about each of the 10 concepts. Not only do the questions help reinforce life lessons and encourage critical thinking, but parents have an opportunity to open up a dialogue in a fun, relaxed way. Who knows, your children might reveal something new about what’s happening in that lovely little noggin of theirs!
