Daniel and the Velcro-Pocket
written and illustrated by Lou Bevacqui
A book for young readers and adults alike; we follow humorously along as Daniel, a young, self-questioning, middle school soccer player heads out with dread to his soccer game. He messed up so unbelievably in last week’s game that he would rather hide himself under his stinky, stunky clothing than face his teammates’ harsh criticism. Daniel shows us all how to build our self-confidence, mental resilience, and intentionally use our imagination. As he discovers a wide array of mental tools, memories, and develops his internal 5 senses to create his inner-reality, Daniel faces off against his toughest opponent yet…himself!
