Jennie Reads Review

As a parent, you quickly realize that being open to a wide variety of resources is necessary when raising children. What works for one may not work for another. And from some resources, you may encounter a smidgen of what is specific for your child. That’s when books such as this one can become very useful. Showing you a child’s inner turmoil in a manner in which your child may understand what is happening is just a small part of its purpose.

Emotions can be a complex idea for any age. At times adults and children are quick to judge not just others but themselves as well. This book uses easy-to-understand concepts such as guards and guides; the author breaks down steps and on occasion, provides examples for the reader to relate to. The author allows for a child’s intelligence by not using a fictionalized account to get the message across. The use of illustrations in several forms helps children visualize the process.

I would be comfortable reading this book to children as young as 7 or 8 and could easily see those over 10 reading it to themselves. The discussions include things not just specific to internal thoughts but also interactions with others.

While this book is written with children in mind and helps them become the best person they can be, there is a lot here that adults could also learn from. As adults, we may have been taught or realized we need to rely on that voice inside that tells us what may be the best path for us to choose. However, a gentle reminder and examples of how to practice that in ourselves can be just what we need to help our children become more centered individuals.
