I received this book the first afternoon I was home with my grandson, who was home from his 4th day of Kindergarten already declaring he did not like school and that he was not smart. I was thrilled to see the book arrive at the front door just in time for an afternoon snuggle and reading time. We opened the book and he immediately reminded me he had his own Hearty Kid that Lisa gave him when he was a baby. I began to read and he was instantly drawn into the story and the delightful and heart warming illustrations. By page 17-18, he informed me upon seeing the illustration of the Hearty Kid in the book, that his toy did not have a pocket, so where could he put his secret notes? His power words? His notes of LOVE? When we closed the book we headed off to find his Hearty Kid, which was on his book shelf in his bedroom. He was so excited to see it once again and wanted to get a pocket for it as soon as possible. No sooner did I mention this to my dear friend Lisa, than she had one in the mail to us. Upon receiving the pocket, which was now 2 weeks or so into kindergarten, he boldly declared that his power words right now were resilience, and helpfulness. WHAT??? What adult even declares working on resilience, let alone a 5 year old! Tristan is a very active kid who can resist being open, cooperative, respectful, and gentle in his heart. He also however, sees hearts wherever we go, and is quick to point them out to me, as I have done this with him, since he was born. This book is tying all of the threads together for him, and supporting this message of SELF BIG LOVE, to become more deeply integrated for him. He now brings his hearty kid out and about, now with a pocket to add new notes, and loves to share those with us. There is no message more important than the message of self love, acceptance, and growing your inner light, “LIKE” button! This book starts the conversation and supports both children and parents alike to be mindful and committed to managing our feelings in a way that cultivates compassion and acceptance for ourselves and others! This is a valuable tool to have in every family and on every classroom book shelf! Thank you Lisa for your commitment to children remembering their wholeness, magnificence, and contribution of magic and light in this world!! YOU ARE A GIFT!!
This beautiful little book introduces to children a way to combat their fears, anxieties and worries: by focusing their minds on love and affirmation of themselves! The beautiful illustrations and simple language convey a message that we all need to hear and understand (especially children!). Thinking patterns of worry and anxiety trap us and keep us from experiencing joy and when we can change those patterns we can break free. This book is a great companion gift with a HeartyKid for a child or grandchild. Anxiety in adults is at epidemic levels and we can turn things around for these growing minds one at a time! Now the author needs to release a Pocket Full of Love for boys!

Lisa Pepper-Satkin's book demonstrates two important actions that children can take when they are faced with paralyzing anxiety: they can change the stories they hear in their minds and they can be of service to others. This beautifully illustrated book will help children see that they can focus on positive thoughts, that their creativity is empowering and that they can endlessly self-sooth using generosity and love. As an educator who is deeply concerned about the challenges our children face today, I hope the story and the HeartyKids toys spread far and wide. They are very needed.
"I'm showing fear who is boss!" Imagine helping our children feel more confident, less fear and perhaps staving off low-level anxiety through teaching love, compassion and helping others! This beautiful book is a perfect gift for every young child. As a coach for women in mid-life, all too often I see the result of the LACK of these principles learned at young ages--lack of confidence, clarity and feeling on-purpose. I urge every parent, Auntie or Grandma to buy and give now! Perfect back-to-school gift for school-age children!
This darling book, which serves as a companion book to the myheartykid toy, invites children to begin seeing the love all around them rather than focusing on their fears. Bright and beautiful illustrations help tell the story of a child struggling with her anxious thoughts, and the way that she begins to help herself work through them. As Mr. Rogers said, "if it's mentionable, it's manageable," and this book will help open up conversations between kids and their caregivers about what's bothering them and holding them back from being their best expressive selves. We could ALL use such a book!

I LOVE this book! It is a very realistic version of some of the challenges kids go through, but are rarely talked about. It is told with care, understanding and support. And the best part is, there is a clear solution that any child could use that could literally change the way in which they experience life. Well done!

"Lean on love instead of worry or fear," This book is something I feel so passionate about. Never have I found a book that so eloquently describes anxiety and fear for little souls while also providing powerful tools to overcome the symptoms of that anxiety. I strongly suggest purchasing this book along with the HeartyKid toy, they are a gift of love and comfort that just keep on giving.

Pocket Full of Love is beautiful, simple and profound. It eases shame around fear and anxiety and provides language and a pathway to open communication, self confidence and self acceptance in children. Every reader can feel the healing benefits of the book and this is a special gift to families and their children. Thanks to authentic teachers like Lisa.
