"I have witnessed a transformation in school children as they experience the journey in "The Moon Balloon". This book is a powerful and healing tool for parents, teachers, and children." -- Annabelle Quigg-Wallace, LICSW School Wellness Consultant

"Joan Drescher's artfully imaginative 'Moon Balloon' is more than a wonderfully engaging story, it is a unique journey to the doorway where children can explore their feelings and fears, hopes, and dreams. "The Moon Balloon is a powerful interactive book for growth, strength, and transformation." -- Roxanne E. Daleo, Ph.D. Health Psychologist

"The Moon Balloon" is a gem of a book and will delight all who read it and experience the beautiful, empowering images. Imagery is a way for children to open to their healing potentials of mind, body, and spirit. This book can be used again and again to remind children of the power of their imagination in healing." -- Barbara Dossey, R.N., M.S., F.A.A.N.

Top Customer Reviews

By Lila Goldman on July 5, 1999
Format: Paperback
As I read this tapestry of words and life-affirming illustrations to a group of children who temporarily live with their moms in a shelter for battered women, all, including the boy who had been repeatedly slammed against the wall by his stepfather, responded to the validations and wisdom offered by the author with great respect for the human journey away from despair. The book immediately engaged them. As they listened, the children touched the pages again and again to connect to this source of light. It was a miracle to see the seeds of hope and healing planted almost effortlessly. I recommend this book without reservation for all ages, from childhood to the elderly. It is a tool and a treasure!
