Overview

In his fourth book for children, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer focuses on the topic of excuses and how they can do more harm than we realize. The book demonstrates how excuses go far beyond “my dog ate my homework,” and can actually become words that prevent your child from reaching his or her potential.

The book follows a boy with a seemingly impossible dream who almost lets excuses (“I’m not smart enough” . . . “It’s too hard,” and so on) get in his way.

He discovers, as will your child, that by following a few simple ideas and eliminating excuses . . . anything is possible!

Great book

A great book to show children how to investigate and think through decisions they may want to make. This is a good story to reinforce skills on how to make thoughtful decisions. Dr. Dyer has written an excellent book for children.

This book with its colorful illustrations and relatable story helps children look past common excuses that stifle dreams and reinforces the message that anything they want to achieve is possible so long as the stay true to themselves and follow their happiness. My six year old son enjoys this story because it resonates with what he already declares for himself --- I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT!

I think this book is great for young people, actually all ages. We live in an time where everyone seems to be telling us what to do and what path is best. It very scary to follow your heArt but this young man did! Great journey.

Every visit with my three-year-old granddaughter involves reading this book. It's about a young boy who discovers how to overcome "excuses" to become what he really wants to be.

This treacle is on the same rung of the literary ladder as the Berenstain Bears series of didactic, moralizing sermons disguised as children's books. In the words of Mr. Potter, this is no better than "sentimental hogwash". What's next? Sending toddlers to AA and elementary-aged school children to The Forum? See, the way literature works (literature that stands the test of time, at any rate) is this: you tell a good story (poem, play, novel, short story, etc.); you tell it well; you bring truthfulness, sincerity, and -- hopefully -- inspiration to the story; and you allow readers to embark on an imaginary journey that brings them to some new-found or forgotten insight into themselves, the world, or living. Or not -- the decision is theirs! And that goes for children's books as well. But if you insist on sending them on your magical carpet ride of "how to achieve their dreams" or "how to be okay", why don't you send the little guys to church, 12-step groups, or elitist nursery schools that prepare "them for success", and leave their imaginations to those who know what they're doing? E.g, the poets, artists, musicians, and other dreamers? Very sad...
