In this delightful tale for ages three to eight, Rolling Thunder, a shiny black horse, faces the challenge of moving to a new herd. Things look gloomy until Gracie, a kind, motherly mare encourages him to be himself. See how he learns to trust his true nature and make new friends.
Another in the Conscious Stories collection,this beautifully illustrated book is crafted to reduce anxiety and encourage children to be themselves in new situations like changing schools or joining a new class. It teaches kids to drop their need for performance and simply be themselves.
The book ends with Rolling Thunder’s Friendly Questions, a playful activity page to help parents connect more deeply with their children about showing up as their real, authentic selves.
A rich story based on truth, authenticity, and relationship. Rolling Thunder captures the essence of each horse as well as the energy of the herd, softness, and acceptance, giving us the chance to learn about ourselves.

Our new favorite book in this series! Being comfortable in your own skin (and soul) is one of the most liberating lessons a child can receive.

The story of Rolling Thunder beautifully captures the heart and imagination of children and adults and provides a unique and applicable reference for new social situations and interactions.

Love this story. Well done. Great for young and old. I would love to see more of your stories available here in New Zealand.
I think its a fair title.
The story was delightful. I am giving it to our nearly 4 year old granddaughter, she will no doubt love the 'horsey' theme. Not sure about age appropriateness ??
The illustrations are great as well@
I love that the stories have such wholesome content, with lessons for children (and reminders for adults).

Meet The Author
My name is Andrew Newman. I love all things creative and spiritual - especially kids! I've written books that help families connect at the end of those hectic days filled with growing, loving, and learning. I have trained and worked in healing and community building for many years which is demonstrated in the amount of detail and attention I've given to the impact of each book. These stories come to me in moments of clear sight and understanding. They feel like a gift to me, and I hope to pass that on to you and yours. Welcome to Conscious Stories - I hope it blesses your family!
