What to expect: Self-Esteem, Goals, Empowerment

Kathleen Boucher has created a book dedicated to empower all children to dream big, share kindness, spread love and be happy. Using a conversational style that will have readers believing this book is just for them, she teaches children that they have the power to choose their own thoughts and that each thought has the power to become something.

“Thoughts have power. They become things. What do you want to do? What do you want to have? What do you want to be? I want you to promise to dream BIG!”


Boucher also encourages children to realize that we are all unique and therefore all special:

“From the beginning of time until the end of time there will only be one of you on Earth. Only one! This means you are very special exactly as you are right now.”


The message is gigantic but completely attainable through Boucher’s simple yet extremely encouraging words. On each double page spread, you’ll find a short paragraph and a colorful illustration. The illustrations all have a warm glow to them, this glow adds a little extra shine and sparkle and subliminally reinforces positivity and warm-hearted kindness. Through their color of skin, the children illustrated on the pages deliver the message of diversity and acceptance, as does the front cover that displays children of many nations holding hands around the globe.

Caregivers that want to encourage the belief that positive thinking can bring on positive thoughts—the law of attraction—will really enjoy sharing this beautiful and powerful dedication to children. It’s the kind of book that benefits all ages.
