This book won the 2014 Nautilus Silver Medal Book Award in the Parenting/Family category. The children in this book, aged 4-9, who made these cards in a Los Angeles school, named them MeCards and wanted to show other kids how to make them. So in this book you'll find out how to make MeCards, a children's adaptation of Seena Frost's SoulCollage® process. Every MeCard has a collage and a poem. The children show you their cards and I AM... poems, and they tell you what matters to them, expressing some very deep feelings and understandings about life. They explain that it s okay to make cards in your own special way and tell you what you need. One first-grader, named Jasmine, says, Making MeCards™ makes me feel good because it makes my heart open and that makes me happy to be me! Teachers, parents, and grown-up friends: you'll find guidance in here too! The I AM... poems are structured with prompts to help the children make feeling statements from the images they choose to collage.

Review:

Wonderful to hear about this adaptation of SoulCollage® for kids! The pictures of the cards they are making and the poems they are writing, all fill me with joy. My granddaughter, Carrie, loved making cards when she was younger, and I know that being in a group of children to make and share MeCards would have kept her going with the process. I m especially glad that writing poems from the perspective of the images is included. It s such a great exercise for developing imagination and intuition early in life. Perhaps a generation of poets is in the making. Many thanks to Nancy Weiss and Jane Raphael for bringing forth this book of MeCards4Kids™. --~ Seena Frost, founder of SoulCollage®, author of SoulCollage® Evolving

The beauty of this book is that it is a work about creative self-expression by children, for children. Very young children instinctively understand the power of choosing imagery and creating poetry to bring joy, deepen self-understanding, and facilitate healing. As a bereavement counselor and SoulCollage® facilitator, I was particularly moved by the poignant tributes to lost loved ones... MeCards4Kids™ is an indispensable resource to help children and their families move through life s seasons and changes. --~ Roberta Rook, LCPC, SoulCollage® Facilitator & Trainer, Bereavement Coordinator, The Chesapeake Life Center at Hospice of the Chesapeake.

MeCards4Kids™ is pure magic. The heights of imagination and depth of feeling my children have tapped into in creating their cards are gifts they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. --~ Iona Brindle, Parent and MeCards4Kids™ Volunteer
