The Little Soul and the Sun is a simple and powerful story that brings children a very profound truth: there is no absolute good or bad–that underneath all that happens in the world, all that we call “good” and all that we call “bad,” is love.
Your child will discover a God that she or he can love, because God is love, as are all the Little Souls who are a part of God. And perhaps parents, too, will rediscover who they really are.

The New Mood Therapy is a book written by David D. Burns, first published in 1980, that popularized cognitive behavioral therapy.
Theory and research over the last 50 years show that emotions or feelings are based not on the event or the world we perceive but rather on how we interpret events and the world. The good news is that anxiety, guilt, pessimism, procrastination, low self-esteem, and other “black holes” of depression can be cured without drugs.
This is the stress management, happiness, psychology and self-help book which shares the different methods to handle anxiety and guilt in our lives.
