A book about life. Not only for children, aged 9+, but for the whole family. A book that can help children increase their self-awareness, self-esteem and confidence, as well as maintain their mental health. The book shows them how perfect and powerful they really are and how they can shape their lives to become joyful and peaceful no matter what.
Although the book is about a holiday, it talks about things like self-compassion, emotions, death and the power of the mind, heart and ‘now’. However, it’s easy to read and understand, thanks to the simple language, realistic situations and detailed explanations.
In addition to individual and family reading, the book can also be used in school wellbeing sessions.
You are perfect and wonderful just the way you are! And the key to your life is in your hands. Don’t know what that means? You can live a joyful and full life. You can calm your emotional storms and the thoughts swirling in your head. You can find deep peace even when you are hurt or grieving. Don’t know how? Let the story of Emma and Bob guide you.
Thanks to their curiosity, Emma and Bob’s ordinary holiday becomes extraordinary. In addition to enjoying time at the beach, in the forest and at home, Gran explains to them ‘the endless cycle of life’ and the importance of ‘self-kindness’, ‘positive thinking’, ‘listening to your heart’ and ‘being present’. You can learn these too, just open your mind and heart.
You’ll find that even simple things like breathing, a sandcastle, half a glass of lemonade or a little flower can teach you things about yourself and life that you may have never heard before.
Ágnes Horváth followed her heart when she wrote her first book, ‘Emma and Bob’. After many years of helping mostly adults as a nurse, care assistant and currently a nursing associate, she became passionate about helping children as well, in a very different way. Over the last decade, she discovered our true essence beyond thoughts and personality, why we perceive the world and our experiences the way we do, and how we can influence our lives. She learns through her own experiences, from well-known spiritual teachers and scientists (E. Tolle, Mooji, L.L. Hay, Dr J. Dispenza, Dr B. Lipton, G. Braden…) and from an excellent psychotherapist. She enjoys spending time in nature.
