Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Everyone I've talked to about this book loved it as much as I did. While I was reading, the hairs on the back of my neck stood up, not from fright, but from the emotional charge. It makes sense that children are likely to remember past lives as their open minds allow them to experience a trance state that adults have to practice to achieve, and maybe more children relive their former lives than we think. Carol Bowman gives us a guide for recognizing and handling such episodes. She writes not just as a researcher, but as a mother who has seen her own children go through the experience. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

When her young son's hysterical fear of loud noises is cured by past life regressionist Norman Inge, and her daughter's fear of house fires is likewise laid to rest, Bowman, who had already been regressed by Inge, began to explore past-life regression techniques and theories, particularly as they relate to young children. Part memoir, part guidebook for parents, part summation of the works and philosophies of such respected authorities as Jungian therapist Roger Woolger, psychologist Helen Wambach and psychiatrist Ian Stephenson, among others, this book argues passionately for the existence of past lives and for the special abilities of young children to recall their pre-birth memories. Topics covered include death accounts by children, the way phobias may be connected with death in a past life, particularly a traumatic death, and the signs that indicate that a child is struggling with an unresolved past-life burden. Once remembered, a death may become a source of inspiration, according to Bowman. Clearly written, though at times not clear in its chronological layout, this study should appeal to a broad range of New Age readers.

Carol Bowman's Children's Past Lives, is possibly the best written work on children's reincarnation.

Carol Bowman begins by relating the experiences she had with her own young son, who was hysterically afraid of loud noises, to introduce the reader to typical experiences that can happen before children are born, but to which they are reacting in this life.
The primary focus of this book is on helping children to overcome their phobias, especially when traditional psychotherapy fails to uncover a cause or solution. The book is aimed both toward parents of children with phobias, and also just toward parents generally.
The only reason I am giving the book four stars, instead of five, is that I was already a believer in reincarnation and was looking for a book relating many, many cases of reincarnation.
While the book does present a reasonable number of cases, these are not the book�s primary focus. The primary focus is toward parents who may never before have considered the possiblility of reincarnation. The book spends a great deal of time discussing research by other eminent researchers (an EXCELLENT summary, by the way, for further reading), and giving guidelines toward how to tell the difference between which memories may be from past lives, vs. made-up fanatasies on the part of the child. If you are a parent, and your child has any unexplained exceptional talents, odd behaviors, or phobias, this book is for you. If, like me, you already believe in reincarnation, and you are looking for more actual cases to read about, I suggest you skip this book and go directly to Carol�s second book, �Return From Heaven,� which is even better than this excellent book (and also includes her experiences with her own children).
Carol is perhaps the world�s current leading expert on this subject.
Anyone looking for this book on the British Amazon site, and finding limited availability, will find the book READILY available from the American site.

Ms. Bowman has done us all a tremendous service in taking time to research and write this book. She suggests that she is not an author, yet her organization and writing skills are superb. The book is organized into two main sections. Each section is broken down into bite-size sub-sections of a few pages.
Section #I is biographical in nature. She tells how she became interested in this topic and how she researched the topic. She shares with the reader her trials, tribulations as well as her successes. After reading this section I felt that here is someone just like me going down the crooks, crevices and turns of the research just the way I probably would have done it.
Section #II is more of a do-it-yourself section for parents who are interested in using this technique for therapeutic purposes for their children.
As a scientist, with a Ph.D. in Chemistry and Physics, I am more interested in Section #1. I am interested in evidence of past lives. Carol Bowman has given me weighty evidence directly and pointed me in the right direction of more evidence. She has generous bibliography and reference sections.
Read this book and you will be as enthused as I am!
Why do I have this feeling that Carol was meant to write this book?

Truth or myth. My husband died recently and I have been reading alot about reincarnation. This book appealed to me because I have often wondered about family and friends coming back to live another life.

I have been a christian most of my life, I was saved at the age of 12. I never really wondered until after my children were born. Although most Christians make fun of reincarnation I have found that it has increased my faith in God and Jesus and helped me to better understand His word.

My Uncle had been like a father to me, he and my aunt were always there for me. My father never worked a day if he could help it. My mother was chronically depressed. We lived with this Aunt and Uncle most of my childhood.

In 1973 my uncle died at 53 of heart failure. I had 2 children by then and did not want any more. Surprisingly, even though I was on the pill, I got pregnant at the end of 1975. In April of 1976 I gave birth to a little girl.

This child has been there for me at every trouble I have had, esspecially the death of my husband. She has been my rock and my staunch ally throughout all of her life. If I have a need she is there. My other children are very like her, in that I only have to ask and they are there for me. All are very supportive. But she seems to find my needs before I do.

But when she was small, only 2 years old, she would cry every time I mentioned my Uncle's name, and when we went to the cemetary she became very upset. I wish I had read this book at that time. I would have asked her questions.

When I ask her now she remembers crying, she says she felt at that time that she knew him. Now she is 27 and says she doesn't feel like that now.

This book opens up alot of questions and I found it an amazing record that is very well written. If you are interested in this phenomona I highly recommend this book.

This book was the first book on past life regressions I had read. After completing this book I was compelled to read others on regression. Carol's book is so full and complete, and answered so many questions. Her coverage of the topic of children's past lives was comprehensive. She seemed able to anticipate questions of the reader and follow through with the answers. I found her book almost impossible to put down. The ideas of children being helped through past life regressions is inspiring and leaves me hopeful. I feel that this book has opened up a whole place of exploration in my life. I would like to thank Carol for writing this book and writing it so well. I would encourage others to read it and explore this new world too.
