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.

Note from a Mom

Being in the mental health field, I can definitely see these books being beneficial resources for children suffering from anxiety and depression due to low self-esteem. I like that there is repetition in the books with reading the affirmation, having to trace, unscramble, and color in the letters. Then there is a short activity/question that pertains to each affirmation that is also relevant in making the affirmation part of the long-term memory.

We have all 3 workbooks and the little doves affirmation cards and my kids love them! My 6 and 8yr old enjoy the exercises – I like that they can do them together. They love the characters and the messages are great conversation starters. My 4yr old enjoys using the deck of cards with her older siblings and she is almost ready for her own set of workbooks!

This workbook series is a fun and engaging way to explore feelings and emotions with children, while also promoting self-confidence!

Such a beautiful workbook (with cards) to teach children about the importance of being kind, and how to respond when faced with someone who is not. Excellent tool for kids who need a gentle lesson in positive self-esteem and confidence, teaches kids the skill of mindfulness with actions and words. Illustrations are lovely, engaging and age appropriate for grade school children. Can’t recommend enough!
