This book is written for children, and we need to guide them in love – as we allow them to teach us.

In her new book “Wake Up! To All You Are” (published by Balboa Press), author and artist Winifred Rich teaches children a lesson that’s important to people of all ages: that in creating their lives from love and joy, they can uplift everything around them.

Rich uses poetry to enlighten, encourage and teach children the importance of love, happiness and self-worth. Through fun illustrations and a comprehensible writing style, she teaches children the fundamentals of knowing who and what they are, living their love and allowing Spirit to work in them. Ultimately, she teaches them to give up the struggle; to ask, and it is given.

“This book is written for children, and we need to guide them in love – as we allow them to teach us,” Rich says. “It should be viewed as a primer that teaches readers how to live in ease and happiness as we were intended: to love and learn from others, even those we may overlook, like those in our natural world.”

Through her exploration and study of the world’s religions as well as her career as an educator, Rich learned to see herself and the world differently. After suffering a devastating auto accident in 1986, Rich learned she had the ability to overcome hardships. Her healing was a time of discovery, and she found good in her situation. With a renewed sense of self-worth and appreciation for life, she penned “Wake Up! To All You Are” as a manual for exchanging fear for fabulous living.

“This book is principle instruction for everyone, regardless of age,” says Rich. “It’s what was given to us at birth, but society taught us to disregard. It is for anyone who has ever wondered who they are, why they are here or how to use their special magic to create everything they want for a joyous and abundant life. We can uplift all things by simply waking up to all we are, and this book can be a life-changer, a world-changer!”
