Books That Make You Understand the World Afresh, Perhaps Through Children’s Eyes

Author Kelly Anne Manuel has released four wonderful series for kids, all bearing a suite of positive messages. All in all, there are 31 books, one for every day of the month.

The Essentials Series—here, kids learn the importance of positive self-talk, with daily, positive affirmations that help children face their fears.

The Classics—timeless books where all generations can find meaning, and which help kids maneuver through challenging situations.

The Rainbow’s End Series—stories that aid in imaginary play. Each book begins with “The other day I went to visit a friend…”, and so whisks readers to a different place, where everything is possible.

My Name Is Series—with these, children can their internal and external nature, exploring self-esteem and clear communication. They offer the child the opportunity to say: “This is who I am.”

Kelly’s books meet children where they are. They help children see the world in an altogether inspiring—and entertaining—way, and to meet it with curiosity and confidence.
