Empowering kids, one book at a time.

The purpose of my books is to give adults language to provide emotional support to kids, as well as to inspire confidence in children!

The books in the Mindful Mantra series are quick, simple to read, useful resources for parents and teachers. They will give you a common language to use to help children self-regulate.

The books in The Courage Chronicles are geared for kids a bit older, 7-10, and are interesting stories about transformation and magic, all while telling your kids how they too can find their courage through a wonderful story.

You can buy all my books here from my website, or you can purchase from Amazon!  Full disclosure, I cannot provide Amazon level service, and must, therefore, charge you shipping!

Highly recommend this book! My son was reciting with confidence the mantra midway through the book during our bedtime read aloud. The final page is quite ingenious and served as the ultimate reinforcement of the mantra. Well done!

I Matter!

Show the children in your life how special they are, even when the words aren’t said.

They matter to moms, dads, brothers, teachers, friends, and even to plants and animals!  Kids often don’t know why they matter, but this book will help to make it clear.

Everyone MATTERS.

FIVE STARS! I use this regularly in a special education setting for children who need social skills and emotional education.

I Can Handle It! 2

 Kids learn well through repetition, and simple easy to ‘get’ language.

Positive self-talk is incredibly important for improving and maintaining mental health and the mindful mantra books are a way to plant that positivity right into a child’s head!
Help your child learn to handle difficult emotions along with Sebastien, and provide a tool for lifelong confidence.

Depression and anxiety don’t discriminate and our kids need help. I Can Handle It 2 continues from where I Can Handle It the original leaves off, equipping children with a necessary skill to alleviate everyday anxieties that arise in their lives.

​This is such a great book for EVERY kid out there (and maybe a few adults, too). It’s chock full of simple easy ways to handle situations that kids might find difficult or uncomfortable. Love all of Laurie Wright’s books for kids. They’re so accessible for readers of all ages.


I Will Be Okay!

Kids often have a feeling of unease when they aren’t sure about a situation. Sometimes they interpret the ‘weird’ feeling to mean that they aren’t safe. This book is a great start to the conversation about how they WILL be okay, even when they feel frustrated, nervous or worried.

Great ideas and positive ways to redirect children’s attention to the fact that they have options when faced with feelings of anxiety, anger, and fear. The “I will be okay” mantra throughout the book really made it simple and easy for kids to understand. I plan to use this with some of my kiddos at school when they come to me feeling like they are “stuck” in those feelings. Great resource!

I Will Try!

Would you just please TRY?!?

If this refrain sounds familiar, you need this book!

Help your child or students learn an important concept, that they can TRY even when they don’t know what new places, people or things have in store.

The illustrations are great and my kids loved the book. It got my son to try sleeping without his blanket tonight so we could wash it (finally)!

I Believe in Myself!

Believing in yourself can be hard. 

Here is a secret: all people, not just kids, wonder if they are good enough, strong enough, or fast enough at some point in their lives. Everyone wonders if he or she’ll be up to all the challenges life presents. 

Boost your child or students’ self-confidence while reading about Poppy. Watch how she handles situations that make her feel anxious, sad or even angry!

I loved how this book named the feeling and situation and then offered solutions for how to solve the problem along with acknowledging “I believe in myself.” The solutions were easy for kids to understand and the range of situations and feelings was great!

I’m Proud of Myself!

Boost your child’s positive self-talk by teaching them this mantra: I’M PROUD OF MYSELF.

Even when things are hard, even when things go wrong, even when things turn out unexpectedly, kids should be proud of the effort they put in.

Give the children in your life the gift of learning to believe in themselves, a gift that will last a lifetime.

Since teachers and parents have the most difficult and important jobs, this book comes with free resources for both! Simply go to lauriewrights.com/seven to get them.

I liked this book. Sometimes children are told pride in themselves is wrong. It’s not!!! Their achievements in self-control or overcoming obstacles are worth celebrating! Simple to follow and understand, with cute facial expressions illustrated cleanly.


Does your child feel able to do hard things?

Hopefully the answer is YES! but even the most independent children need reminders sometimes.

Kids are quite capable when given the chance to do things for themselves, but at the same time, it’s normal to doubt themselves and to wonder if they will be able to do things that seem hard at first.

Emotions are tricky and hard to manage when you’re small which is why kids need our help!

The eighth installment of the Mindful Mantras series equips children with the necessary skills to realize that they can push through their self-doubt and do difficult things because they are brave and strong.

Give the children in your life the gift of learning self-confidence, a gift that lasts a lifetime.

Teachers and parents have difficult and important jobs! To say a giant THANK YOU, this book comes with resources to use at home and at school. Simply go to lauriewrights.com/eight to get them.

The Courage Chronicles:  Rainbow’s End

An adventure story about three siblings who find themselves magically transported into a new world. A world of unicorns, goblins, and magic! The children all have their interesting quirks and flaws, and the classic ‘eldest should responsible’ theme will appeal to many children.

This is the first in the series, watch for ‘Dragon’s Song‘ coming next!

This book is great for all ages! I really love the illustrations and I loved that it’s about unicorns and magic! In the story, the little sister has to be brave when she has to protect the rainbow dust from the goblins. It is a great book for any kids who want to hear a cool story or are bored of the “I can read” series, or are very advanced in reading and there are not enough choices at their school or library. I would recommend it to anyone! Five stars! Paisley, age 10

The Courage Chronicles Book 2: 

Dragon’s Song

Adventure, transformation and new friends who will be remembered forever!

In this installment of The Courage Chronicles, the sibling roles get a bit turned around.

Sebastien, the oldest, usually has to watch out for the little ones. It doesn’t work out that way this time, due to a lost little brother and a new tail!

Elise has been protected by her older brother her whole life, but was recently transformed into a unicorn and took on the protector role herself. This time, Elise must choose between helping her older brother sort out his new tail, and locating her younger brother who is lost – again.

The littlest sibling will always be the baby, the one most likely to wander off and to cause chaos amongst those left searching, whether that baby is human … or dragon.

Have you ever noticed how kids LOVE to pretend that they magically transform into fantastical creatures? This series is that imaginative play in book form! Children 4-8 will enjoy hearing the story read aloud, while their older siblings will enjoy listening in on the adventures.

Kids feel uncertain about themselves and worry about whether they fit in. Let’s stop that from happening before it starts!

After reading this book your young child will realize that people are more alike than different and that everyone belongs, no matter where they are or what differences they might have.


I love all of Laurie’s books, but this one really struck a heart chord. We need inclusion lessons for children now more than ever. This is the perfect place to start. It’s geared toward younger kids, but it needs to be read to kids of ALL ages. I know far too many adults who need reminders that we all belong. ~online reviewer
