Book Review - Why Is Pono not Pono Today?

★★★★★ Extraordinary Book with a Powerful Message!

Reviewed in the United States on September 2, 2021

Wonderful book with a powerful message for children AND adults. Stress will never go away so rather than ignore it, this book beautifully shares a story that gives little ones the courage to solve problems that arrive in life. Hopeful, endearing, and magical…this book should be in every library and classroom in the world! It is never too early to empower our younger generations and it will not only impact them but any adult who reads it too! There is no greater gift than to teach someone to understand their feelings and this book does this in a way very few books have!

"This course provided useful information and explanations about stress and how to use it to my advantage. Deb Lewis has an engaging style that cuts through the normal psychological babble and clarifies complex concepts through stories and visualizations. Her style and presentations have given me practical tools for both my personal relationships and business dealings. I highly recommend this Lifecoach Class series."
