Perhaps you, like many parents, are concerned about your child developing the right mindset, and with good reason. Having the ability to draw your own conclusions and think for yourself are indispensable skills in an era like ours. If you want a proven method to guide you, A Religion of Story by Amanda and Aaron Johnson is the book for you. Co-written by mother and son, this book is inspired by the same method Amanda herself adopted with Aaron - using stories as starting points to reflect. Now, the two authors offer parents insights into uncertainty, self-knowledge, training, camaraderie, redemption, destiny, and leadership to ensure that their children grow up with greater awareness and thought agility.
We all know the importance of stories, and I am sure each of us has our favorite and knows its power. This is why A Religion of Story fascinated me from the start. While recognizing the power of stories, I never imagined that someone could use them methodically to help children think freely. Amanda and Aaron Johnson have offered a remarkable service to all the parents who will understand the value of this method. In particular, the chapter dedicated to redemption and the reflection on the villains' characters was amazing - it will make a child's perception change at once. I believe A Religion of Story is a must-read to help all children navigate the uncharted waters of our age, and it is an invaluable gift that the authors have created.
