Share Article

Mom’s Choice Awards® names Me to the Rescue among best in family-friendly products. This inspirational book for children teaches the importance of participating in your own rescue when life throws you challenges.

"Just believing you can solve the problem makes it possible," writes DuRocher in the self help childrens book, Me to the Rescue.

Amelia DuRocher’s second self help children’s book Me to the Rescue joins the first, 3 Steps to Happy: Stop, Snap and Smile, as a Mom's Choice Awards® best in family-friendly products winner in the Growing Up/Personal Growth category.

Accompanied by bright colors and creative photography, DuRocher writes what could be described as self-help books for children ages 4-8. In her books DuRocher teaches insightful concepts to children in hopes to help them live life as the best version of themselves. She recognizes how even a small shift in awareness as a child can grow into a world of difference as they become adults.

In her insightful book, Me to the Rescue, DuRocher teaches children how important it is to take responsibility for one’s self and solve their problems -- or get “unstuck” -- by participating in their own rescue.
