Boost Your Children’s Confidence with the Inner Rainbow Project ABC’s Book & Chakra Girls Cards

Sharing is caring!

Bring positivity into your homeschool with this ABC book of confidence by Sara Carly Mentlik, perfect for your morning basket!

With all the books and crafts we have been enjoying during this month of February, we have been focusing on love, kindness, and good thoughts.

As Valentine’s Day has come and gone, I was hoping to find a way to encourage these type of thoughts all year long.

Then I found the Inner Rainbow Project’s ABC: an alphabet book of confidence.

It’s great and more than a just ABC Book, it helps to uplift, empower and strengthen everyone who reads it.

Specially created for girls, by a loving mother, Carly wishes to create a world where every girl grows up confident and connected to her true self.

“Let your true self shine!”

By learning and reading these 130 positive and empowering words with your children on a daily basis, you are one step further to building that dream.

A perfect companion for your morning basket.

This book pairs perfectly with any alphabet curriculum, literature or children’s books you may be included in your morning basket right now! Your kids can feel empowered and enriched as they learn five positive words that start with each letter of the alphabet.

We are using them in many different ways!  

Some days we flip through and find a word we heard in a recent book, such as LOVE. Some days I will write out an affirmation that relates to the word on the list, like the one for LOVE: “I love and accept myself for who I am.” I find these affirmations in the Chakra Girls Cards, which I will talk about down below.

The Inner Rainbow Projects ABC book of confidence is on a whole new level of amazing.

Learn the letters of the alphabet as well as teach new positive vocabulary at the same time.

It has helpful teaching tips at the back of the book for each age group, the meanings of the words in the Confidence Dictionary, as well as activity ‘play ideas’ where the child is guided to pretend different things related to that letter, such as A is for Adventure! You are guided to play pretend with your child, in many different ways, and I appreciate how all of those little additions are included.

As you start the conversation with your children about what these words mean to them, ignites a more personal touch to vocabulary learning, in a confidence-building, all while learning the letters of the Alphabet. Amazing!

Start your homeschool day off on a positive foot!

Turning its pages, and reading the next set of words, helps me think of positive and strong things. I know that when my cup is full, and I am happy, our days go much more smoothly. This book is as much for them as it is for me.

Take the letter A, for instance.

I would typically say A is for Apple.

But here I am reminded that A is for Abundance.

This new word inspired me to talk about the ways we can look at how the Apple tree is abundant with apples, and how there is much abundance in our lives if we simply look.

Girls love them!

My 8-year-old daughter quickly gravitated to them and created her own GataLife illustrated story with all the Chakra Girl characters!

I could tell they are a huge inspiration for her already. She hopes they can make dolls to go with the cards!Inner Rainbow Project ABC's Book & Chakra Girls Cards
