From the Author
This book was inspired by my family, clients, and training in The Nurtured Heart Approach®. Relationships and building attachments are the foundations of healthy social and emotional development. This is a book that needed to be written because it is so important for adults to have the tools to celebrate children's greatness, learn mindfulness and help children decrease their worries. In this cyber, high-tech world, we have lost connection, compassion, and kindness. I hope this book rekindles and ignites the love for you and your child (or students), and guides them toward a path of trust, resilience, and success. Casey's Greatness Wings is also helpful for children on the autism spectrum because they are sensory learners. Most children are sensory learners, so this story is a fun, engaging experience to help with self-regulation, safety, and connection. Children speak the language of play, so unplug, and take this time to soak in the many wonders of your child (or student) as they have so many gifts to be celebrated! The activities in the back of the book are great to do with just one child, the family or in a group/classroom. Be sure to read the Letter to Storytellers in the front of the book to learn more.
