Stan and the Four Fantastic Powers


Product Description
Product Details


This is the first children's book based on the power of Appreciative Inquiry (AI) as a worldview for helping each precious child see and grow into the best version of themselves. It's an irresistible story written and illustrated by a super creative intergenerational team: Marge Schiller, a grandmother, with her two great grandchildren, Max and Sarah Schiller; positive school psychologist Shira R. Levy; and illustrator Stefanie Rudolph. The way they work together not only models the message but makes each sentence come alive with authenticity. It's a story that reminds us that every life's destiny is a series of defining moments, often because of people that can see things in us-- inner beauty, signature strengths, potentials--that we cannot even see in ourselves. Thank goodness for those kinds of people.This is a story both about the gift of new eyes--what happens when people can see the true, the good, the better, and the possible in each other--but also the profound lesson that your strengths are your multiplier, they magnify you at your best, and they help you come alive and contribute to the flourishing of others. Without giving away the plot, there is one thing above all others that I value most about this book. It's what will come after its reading. This story will become your story. It will change the way you see your child and the way they will see themselves. It will change your relationship. Can one book enable a defining moment in someone's life? My answer is a resounding "yes"... and you are holding it right now in your own hands!David Cooperrider
