Become a part of history and take part in the “Largest Online Book Discussion in 24 hours” with Miriam Laundry, author of the best-selling children’s book ‘I CAN Believe in Myself’

On May 6 & 7, 2014, Safe and Caring is partnering with Laundry Books to attempt to set the new Guinness World Record and we would love to have Alberta schools participate!

Letting go of the word “I CAN’T” is the basis of the story and something both Laundry and Safe and Caring wishes will be discussed in homes, libraries, and schools across the country and around the world.

“I want to help make a difference in people’s lives and thought that the best way to engage the most people possible was with a Guinness World Record attempt,” says Laundry. “Understanding the power of our thoughts is so important for a healthy mind.”

The book teaches children to make decisions that promote confidence, happiness and responsibility. The goal of the Guinness World Record attempt will be to encourage more than 100,000 children to believe in themselves and to have discussions with their families and their classrooms about self-esteem and empowerment.

All are welcome to participate. Safe and Caring wants to know what your new “I CAN” statement is after reading the book.
