"This series of short stories are both fun and transformational. Each story helps teach children the power they have in controlling and creating their thoughts and feelings. These subtle yet substantial stories can only bring enjoyment and awareness to younger children."- Adrianne Dartnall, Counsellor and Communication Skills Trainer.
The Captain Joe Series was designed as a tool for adults to teach children about constructive imagination. The four books are a fun and interactive way to introduce the concept of "Thoughts Turn into Things" (so choose the ones that make you happy) to young children, ages five to nine years. Joe and his thought-zapping superpower will invite children to use their imaginations to constructively choose thoughts that promote healthy self-esteem and self-awareness. Each picture story is designed to teach a key concept. Captain Joe's Gift is the third book in the series and teaches children about the importance of being authentic and believing in themselves. Children will discover what happens when Joe uses his 'thought zapping superpower' to reveal his special gift. Readers are encouraged to recognize and embrace their own unique traits. This story will leave children feeling confident and proud to share their own special gifts and abilities with the world. It's a great way to introduce discussions with children around anti-bullying and celebrating our differences.
