About The Secret Fairy
The most treasured gift you can give your children is not an ivy league education or a loaded savings account: it’s the positive thinking, self confidence and sense of optimism that will enable them to overcome challenges in life as happy and thriving adults. Optimism is a cornerstone of resilience, and a necessary asset in achieving any kind of success. As most personal traits, it also roots back deep into childhood. A new children’s book, The Secret Fairy helps children grow up to be successful adults with a positive mindset. The Secret Fairy depicts an enchanting fairyland where the approach towards positive thinking, the development of self-confidence appear without being noticeable, within the frameworks of lots of fun and stories from everyday life. After its great success in its homeland among children and adults alike, the author has decided to make the stories of positive thinking available internationally. Parents, teachers in kindergartens and schools all use it and recommend the book to teach children how to handle life’s challenges successfully, and quite simply, to make everything a little bit easier.
The hero of the story is Toby, who experiences various adventures together with Lola, the Secret Fairy and his friends. In the course of these adventures he learns what to do in various life-like situations, for example if he’s made fun of, if he has no self-confidence, or has stage fright, if somebody insults him, if he’s disobedient, if he is jealous of his new-born little sister or if he needs to make friends. The Secret Fairy is the first book to teach children how to live life free from care while growing to a healthy and happy adult.
