Lolli and the Talking Books: Meditation Adventures for Kids, Book 3 is a collection of guided meditations written by Elena Paige. Building on the previous two books in her series, Paige's inspirational guide, Lolli, takes children on three new adventures designed to help them explore their creativity, have more confidence in making decisions, and learn to deal with new experiences that might seem threatening or scary. In the first meditation, Lolli and the Talking Books, Lolli brings aboard a friend from book 1, Liquorice the toucan, and she presents magical flying shoes to her listeners. These shoes fit differently than your typical shoe -- they fit around each toe, and they also sprout wings. It takes a bit of getting used to having flying shoes, but once that's accomplished, Lolli and her friends are off to the Land of Talking Books. Lolli shares the secret of how books come to be born and how the pictures we see in our imaginations can be turned into stories.
Elena Paige's collection of guided meditations, Lolli and the Talking Books: Meditation Adventures for Kids, Book 3, contain marvelous tools for unlocking the creative potential that rests within each of us. Paige's Lolli helps listeners learn to tune out the discordant and competing voices of the unborn books and focus upon a single one. Then she shows how an idea which might not, at first, be seen as original, can be turned into something unique and special. Her giant art carousel, where cherubs create marvelous illustrations for those books which have learned to sing, is an extraordinarily powerful image that particularly resonated with me. I'm so impressed with the depth and scope of these guided meditations. They are truly adventures, which build from their predecessors rather than repeating the same themes. Paige shows how strength, resilience, and creativity can be channeled and grow through meditation, and she does so brilliantly. Lolli and the Talking Books: Meditation Adventures for Kids, Book 3 is most highly recommended.
