Help Children Grow and Develop


Testimonials and Studies

Dr M. Hariet Allen


I am a counseling psychiatrist and have spent my entire career working with children, kindergarten through high school, in the public schools throughout Boston. Although the problems varied and were of different magnitudes, I found that individual counseling need not be so focused, but often a gentler approach was needed to access their inner feelings, so consequently, I employed play therapy through games and adventure challenges and affirmations. The Little Doves products would fit right into my philosophy and should be part of every counseling avenue to help children feel successful and unique.

Little Doves would serve as a welcome addition to enhance counselor’s goals. It taps into a multitude of skill choices that I feel would be very meaningful to the child and the individual working with the child. I see merit in a group approach as well as individual.

I taught group procedures courses at the university level and thus you can imagine I would be very committed to that approach and its value, and I believe Little Doves Products would lend themselves beautifully to group sharing.

I am more than happy to endorse this special approach to individual affirmations through creativity and imagination.

It was my pleasure to review your beautiful and meaningful Little Doves Products.

I have been using the Little Doves Program for the last academic year with a group of children aged from 5 to 10 years. I have found the program very easy to use, it opens discussions in a soft and gentle way. The children have responded so well. It has helped them to open up and talk about their feelings and has given them confidence in themselves. It has made a significant impact on their behavior in the class and as a result, they are doing better in their tests.

I can’t recommend this program enough. I would love to see it on the program for every school.

Ann has created a beautiful set of affirmation teaching tools for children. The affirmation workbook is vividly appealing and appropriately designed for various skill levels. The affirmation cards are simple and thoughtful and have limitless possibilities to connect children with an inner sense of self worth, self value and healthy self esteem. These tools used together or separately are an easy and fun way to spark an awareness in the minds and hearts of children for being compassionate, empathetic and appreciative people.
