ABOUT THE BOOK
Timbo's Tales is a rhyme-ridden story about a young boy from a distant galaxy who has an innate ability to communicate with the cosmos. Intergalactic creatures (stars) inform Timbo that his destiny is to help sick children on planet Earth by putting together a magical potion with the help of his friend Cloudicus.
WHEN A CHILD
When your child awakens with a cold, a sore throat, or any other ailment and needs to take medicine, you know that she or he will not be very excited about the prospect of taking generic, unpalatable medication.
The good news is that we can take this feeling of dread and transform it into a feeling of excitement!
THE POWER OF A STORY
By reading Timbo's Tales to your child, she and he will learn of the healing super potion that Timbo brings to sick children.
Afterward, place a Timbo sticker on a special cup and fill it with your child’s medicine, water, or juice.
They will in turn believe that they are consuming a super power elixir which will immediately elevate their spirit!
As we intuitively know, and science has shown us, the mind is an incredibly powerful tool. Through the power of expectation and belief, the mind can actually heal the body.
