Hero of Hope Children’s Book Promotes Positive Self-Talk

Written by Melissa D’Accordo, Ph.D. after working on an action research project, this book shares all the tools needed for improving self-esteem in children with disabilities with its powerful message and encouragement. Hero of Hope is notably designed to teach children to improve their self-image by thinking and saying positive things about themselves in the mirror each morning so that they can see how precious, important, wonderful they are. “Uplifting affirmations give people the strength needed to face daily challenges,” D’Accordo said. “Once children see their positive attributes, great things will happen. They will be able to overcome any bumps in the road and persist through life no matter what!”
