An exploration into their psychic senses.
It all began when James Peterson was a camp counselor and two children, watching him meditate, described the colors they saw around his form: "...we saw colors coming out of his stomach. And the outside was purple, then it was blue, then it was yellow, then reddish and light yellow in the middle."
Studies indicate that almost seven percent of young children have such psychic experiences. For the most part, they don't tell anybody about them for fear of being ridiculed. But the author believes it would be psychologically healthy for them to relate such occurrences to adults if they feel the need.
In this book Peterson has put together a charming collection of case histories about such psychic episodes. He believes they should be accepted as factual: that frequently they emanate from the "wisdom of innocence" present in youngsters.
The question of the secret life of kids is examined by Peterson from the point of view of philosophy, occultism, and child psychology. He suggests why and how such experiences manifest, and their potential value to the child's growth pattern.
