      Get Your Power Back Now!

      by Anni Sennov and Carsten Sennov

      Dear parents,Read this book before your children do, then you will be able to guide them and give them good advice when they need it. Many parents have asked us whether it is possible to teach you young people to keep your energy in order, as every day you meet and interact with a lot of different people, which exposes you to many different energies. This happens at school, in your extracurricular activities, and when spending time with all your friends, whether it is physically, or through the Internet. And the answer to the question is YES, of course you can learn how to master your own energy! That is why we have written this energy guide. Its goal is to teach you how to stand on your own feet and stand strong in your own energy, both when you are with others and when you are on your own. So whether you are on your way to become a teenager, and have a lot of friends, or no friends at all, if you are splitting time between two homes, or you are about to reach adult life and have a girlfriend or boyfriend, or just have moved out of your parents’ home - this book is for you. This energy guide is perfect for you, if you want to learn more about yourself and others without having to use a lot of effort.

      The Little Energy Guide 1

      Take care of your own energy

      by Anni Sennov and Carsten Sennov

      We spend most of our time with nice, happy people – people we care about and we’d like to help and support in the best way possible. Once in a while, however, we come across people who are not good for us. These are people who try to gain access to our energy in a variety of different ways, and who we should watch out for whenever they are near us. We need to take particular care of our energy as, subconsciously, that is what these people want to get hold of. This little pocket guide can teach you how to do that. By reading the energy guide and following the instructions, you will quickly experience how, consciously, you can hold onto your energy and so be in the best position to make the most of your life.

      THE RED BOOK FOR GIRLS

      by Cristina Romero & Francis Marín

      The Red Book for Girls was born to acompany and empower girls on their way to maturity but it is also a book for mothers and for all women, because it helps us heal hurts of our childhood. An illustrated book whose words and images seem to whisper to our psyche (emotion - mind - spirit) that it is good for us to listen to and love ourselves. Nature dwells within our bodies, and if we open ourselves up to listen to it, it gives us its power: te power to act always in our own interest, the power to know our changing needs and to follow them. The greatest treasure of feminine nature is its ability to appreciate and value that everything changes (inside and outside of you) and that this is perfect.

      Akosua and Osman

      by Manu Herbstein

      Akosua Annan is a confident and fiercely intelligent student at a posh school in Cape Coast, Ghana. There she comes under the influence of a charismatic feminist teacher. Osman Said’s background is very different. Upon the death of his parents, a police sergeant and an unschooled market trader, immigrants to Accra from the North, he is adopted by a retired school teacher, Hajia Zainab. After a spell as an apprentice in an auto workshop, he returns to school. There, finding the teaching inadequate, he becomes an avid reader and educates himself. Akosua and Osman are thrown together by chance in the course of a school visit to the slave dungeon at Cape Coast Castle. Their paths cross again as finalists in the national school debating competition where the subject is “The problem of poverty in Ghana is insoluble.” They meet for the third time as students at the University of Ghana and as we leave them, it looks as if their relationship might develop into something permanent. The friendship between Akosua and Osman is one that transcends differences of ethnic origin, class and religion. This story celebrates the diversity of Ghanaian society. “This fascinating novel tells the story of how these two young people from these disparate backgrounds are brought together as if by an unseen hand, in a process that teaches us about our history, our common humanity despite ethnic differences, the need to pursue our ambitions, the strength of human sexuality and the need for self-discipline, and, above all, the power of love.” The Judges, Burt Award for African Literature, 2011.
