Delanote teaches children to manage their behavior instead of having others manage it for them by giving them control over their feelings, what's happening, and where they want to be in life. Through visualization, children can access a place where they are happy, so they can feel good again in and after any difficult situation.

About Acorns to Great Oaks

"Acorns to Great Oaks: Meditations for Children" helps children to become and stay aware of the world around them, aware of their own fabulousness, aware of energy, aware of their thoughts and feelings influencing their lives and that of others, aware of their connection with this beautiful planet we live on, and aware of how they can change anything for the better, easily and quickly, in order to create trust, strength and happiness.

We are creatures of habit. If we can pick up 'bad' habits (stress, anger), we can also be taught good habits (relaxation, trust, conscious breathing, forgiveness, peace…). We need to teach children how to manage their own behavior instead of having others manage it for them. Meditation and being aware is coming to a place within your heart and mind where you feel happy and trusting so you can feel good again, in and after any situation, wherever you are and as quickly as possible. Visualizing specific pictures in the mind supports this. It teaches children power and control over how they feel, what's happening and where they want to be in life! Acorns to Great Oaks: Meditations for Children contains 22 short meditations to help children on their way, so they can then easily apply 'coping mechanisms' into real life. An Audio-CD with the meditations from this book is also available (978-1-84409-727-2).

"Delanote carefully designed this book to help parents talk with their children about emotions. From the basics of grounding themselves like a strong tree and choosing the emotion they want to start their day with, through learning to sprinkle gold fairy dust on pain, to emptying the backpack of worry, these 1 - 10 minute exercises will allow children to discern and talk about emotional states while they develop a set of skills for managing them. Jokanies' charming and diverse illustrations are filled with smiling, peaceful faces and lots of the little critters that children love to find in their picture books. While the book is simple enough for parents to use, it will also prove a valuable tool for clinicians." Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight
