This rhythmically tale invites children to discover all the wonderful attributes that are inside them. Using principles of gratitude, law of attraction, affirmation and self reflection children will be able to unlock the goodness that lies within each of them. This book is a delightful way to help children ages 6-11 create peace within themselves and uplift their self esteem.

Gather round children, I'm so very glad you're here

To learn the secret of a life filled with laughter, joy, and cheer.

So listen very closely and you will learn the way

To be the very best you can when you work or play

Each day as you awaken and open your sweet eyes,

Go within your heart to find an amazing surprise.

For in your heart there sit great gifts to make a joyful day.

Gifts so huge they fill you up in the most delicious ways.

Now if youíre ready follow me to the place inside of you.

The perfect place where you will find all the good that you can do.

To find these gifts are easy, all you have to do,

Is take a deep breathe and think about what is special about you.

Are you kind to others, loving, really really smart?

Do you sing like a songbird or build things part to part?

Are you helpful to your parents, do you listen to your friends?

Can people trust and count on you to the very end?

Are you brave and courageous, can you make every moment fun?

Do you bring others joy when you paint, jump, dance or run?

Are you cooperative and thankful for the good things in your life?

Do you spend your day with a peaceful heart releasing any strife?

Arenít you amazing, did you know you were so great?

With all these gifts inside of you imagine what you will create!

Now that you have found your gifts the next part is really fun.

Just think about what you want to be, to be that special one.

See yourself in all the ways you truly want to be,

The highest wish you hold for you and the wish, you wish for me.

See yourself as happy, loving, kind and strong.

See yourself, your family, and your friends all getting along

See yourself and your light bringing others joy.

See yourself making peace with every girl and boy.

Know in your mind a vision of the greatness within you.

For then you will achieve great things and make this world anew.

All these things are possible if you just believe.

The clearer you can see yourself the more you can achieve.

Now that you see yourself in every loving way just celebrate who you are

by the simple words you say.

It really is quite easy twelve simple words thatís all

and when you say them you will know the greatest gift of all.

Now take a deep breath and say it out loud so

I am all that I can be because I believe in me!!!!
