Magnificent Kids!

What the experts have to say...
Magnificent Kids! - it is more than just a book about 23 extraordinary kids who are leading by example. It is a book about continual empowerment, and how role models do positively impact future generations. While there are many books out there that are compilations of stories, what stood out for me in Magnificent Kids! was one key word – “passion”. 
So, if you are a parent, a teacher, a sports coach for kids, if you work with kids with disabilities, or are involved with kids in any other capacity, I strongly suggest that you share this book with kids. Enlighten them with the gems of wisdom contained in each chapter. Let them know that their passions are worth pursuing, and their goals can become a reality if they persist. 
This book should be available in every single school so that children can read or hear these inspiring stories, and say to the superheroes in this book, “If you can, I can”.
“The young people showcased in Magnificent Kids! are indeed the leaders of tomorrow. This book clearly shows how everybody has the capacity to make a difference in this world.”
“Magnificent Kids! shows us why self esteem is one of the key ingredients to success. These kids have found their passion and risen to great heights because they ‘like’ themselves and believe in their abilities. This book proves that anybody can do great things and that little steps build amazing outcomes.”
