Setting goals, visualising success, and self-affirmation – all terms usually employed by adults on a self-improvement odyssey. Now a fun, beautifully illustrated and easy-to-digest book for kids, The Power That’s Ours, has been written to introduce children to these empowering concepts. The Power that’s Ours is a sequel to, The Magic that’s OursThe Power that’s Ours continues the tale of the adventurous siblings, Joel and Jina, with more exciting lessons from “Magic”, who guides them through both fun and testing times. Jina is helped by “Magic” as she nervously prepares for a show-jumping gymkhana. Joel in turn learns from his sister how to harness the power of positivity as he gears up for an important football match. The Power that’s Ours is illustrated by exceptional young Cape Town artist Carmen Ziervogel. Her evocative art adds enormous visual impact to the text, depicting in stunning clarity Joel and Jina’s learning quest with “Magic”. An interactive book with “Fun Time” activities at the end of each chapter, the book can simply be read as a story or used as a fun and easy introduction to goal-setting, visualisation, and affirmation.
