Branch, NJ, October 28, 2014] Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein,
internationally known Positive Psychologist and author of 'The Truth,
Diary Of A Gutsy Tween' is offering no charge copies of her latest work
to educators who want to help 5th and 6th grade students build self
Holstein commented: "I wrote 'The Truth, Diary of a Gutsy Tween', so
that any elementary school teacher could open up to just about any
page, read it aloud to her class, and start a great discussion about
the issue or issues brought up by the girl on that page.
Everything is discussed in her diary: a first crush, her emotions and
longings, growing up, parents fighting, school anxieties, problems with
best friends, bullying, fear of moving to a new town, sibling rivalry,
anxiety about illness, how to navigate growing up, etc. As a
positive psychologist I see such a need for this type of fiction, where
teachers and students can immediately jump in to the trials,
tribulations and successes of a fictional character and use her
reactions to life as building blocks for self-esteem growth and
personal understanding of the typical issues we all face as we move
from childhood into the tweens."
The new book is a revised and
expanded edition of her very successful book, 'The Truth: I'm a Girl,
I'm Smart and I Know Everything'. The new book is published by Sky Pony
Press. Dr. Holstein's book is a first in using fiction for embedding
positive psychology concepts.
Holstein has received very positive feedback from both readers and
educators. One young reader stated, "The minute my friend told me about
your book I started to read it and I absolutely loved your book! I
really liked how you didn't include the girls name so we could try to
make it up our selves. I also liked how she said her thoughts and you
can totally picture how she feels. Please email me back."
An educator stated, ""As a teacher I was looking
for a book that addressed many issues girls ages 9 to 12 may incur.
This book certainly opens up communication between a mother and her
daughter, and in doing so it also bridges the gap between other adults,
as well....I am looking forward to implementing this easy read book
into my classroom in order to impress upon my students how to gain some
very necessary coping skills to carry with them in their lives."
Dr. Holstein is making the book available to teachers and educators upon request. She can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of her works are available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and all
other online retailers. More information is available at her website at
