The Truest Heart Keepsake is a support tool for all caring adults who want to guide children in developing self esteem, confidence and self-worth. Parents, grandparents and teachers are important to children as they develop their ideas about resilience and friendship.
If we help children identify a time–even the tiniest instance–of when they demonstrated a quality, then we can use that to build their strengths. This book provides an opportunity to have conversations to help children access growth mindset qualities such as courage, effort and creativity.
It provides opportunities for children to write and draw, visualizing themselves with strengths. It includes tools to help them understand how to improve friendships and a planning tool for them to learn to stand up to bullying behavior. Inspirational quotes are provided for conversation and coloring.
We encourage parents and grandparents to write and talk about their own stories, times when they themselves demonstrated the qualities they wish for children. This book is a way to share these stories, a keepsake of family resilience.
