I present motivational programs in the Detroit area schools. This book is excellent in showing that the positive actions displayed by Danny make him shine like a winner. Nothing wimpy about him! This book will become part of my CREATING CHAMPIONS program to have children see that really strong individuals don't need to use their fists to be in control of their lives! Bravo to all involved in the creation of this book. More books like this in schools could help curb some of the growing violence we're seeing.

I liked how the girl stood up to that bully... I could do that, say "Hey, why are you taking his lunch?!? Get your own lunch!" I liked the part about "friendship"... there was a lot in this book about "friendship". I loved it. It's my favorite book ever! - Rachel P, age 10

After reading Dan Millman's other work, I was excited to see there were children's books available. I have shared this book with my students, as well as teachers and it is a hit with everyone. It reinforced valuable lessons that teachers try to teach in the classroom. I have used this book with kids up to 8th grade.

This is a book that I have used over and over again to educate children in the way of peace. It was a book that I had gotten for my son when it first came out and have been sharing it ever since. It is such a connection with children and a way to deal with conflict and bullies.

I just read this book last night with my son (age 9)and wanted to send it as gift to his friends as gifts (for those big boys and their family)
My son picked this book (and another one by the same author / illustrator) "Quest for the crystal Castle")at a special store in Vermont (where I was trying orgnic cotton clothings). He seemed very engrossed for a long time, and I bought both recognizing the words"peaceful worrier" (had been mentioned a few times this summer).
Last month, I myself become a fan of Dan Millman's "Sacred JOurney of a peaceful worrior". It was definitely on my list of "books that changes life". So, I was glad to read these two children version of "peaceful worrior " book with my son last night. I found it a wonderfully written children book with insight and enlightment that my son really loved. He is an avid reader and has been reading lots of great novels, yet Dan's books still inspire him to a very deep level. We both appreciate the books greatly and start thinking about giving these books as gift to his playgroup friends since babyhood.

Dan Millman does a great job of translating the concepts at the root of his book "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior" for digestion by children. It should be in every family's collecton of influential reads for children.

I was not sure what to expect but hoped the young ones would enjoy this story as much as I enjoyed Way of the Peaceful Warrior (WPW). It is difficult to be compelling for a young one especially on a topic like this. This is good but I am not sure if it is only because I know the WPW. I tend to think many subtle aspects would be lost if the reader is not familiar with WPW.
It is worth getting, it is good, just not excellent as I had hoped it would be.

Dan has created a series of stories with so many lessons, his books can be used lifelong. I share this book with my young athletes to help them prepare their emotions, minds, spirits & bodies for competitive sports & life ahead in "the real world." I highly recommend it to anyone active in helping to shape young people.
