WILMINGTON, NC, November 23, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The Holidays are a special time of year when we stop and take the time to look at all we have to be thankful for. We express our appreciation all that we have been given. Most of us exchange gifts at Christmas and our children are the primary focus of gift giving.
While some gifts last only a few weeks or month perhaps, before breaking or being pushed aside, some of those gifts fall into a different category. Nearly all of us recall receiving that special gift, that one of a kind heirloom gift that has been passed down from generation to generation. Award winning author Sarah Klaiber has created such a gift with her new children's book, 'Treasures'.
Many books have been written around the concept of positive thinking. However, to find the reason WHY we should be positive, we must look beyond our perceptions of everyday events. This goes beyond positive thinking to the realization that every happening - good, bad, ugly, sad - offers us the opportunity to find a hidden treasure. What is a treasure? A treasure is anything that has value. And every one of those treasures holds massive power. How do we do that? There are three simple steps - Stop. Look. Appreciate.
A child's mental health is all important. Our children face issues we have never faced. The mental health issue is particularly challenging, as today's kids must interact in a world in which social media (and the resulting cyberbullying) take center stage. This does not only affect children. Adults face many of the same issues.
"I wrote this book to remind children and adults to appreciate the small things, the things around them that are often taken for granted," Klaiber stated. "If we invite this message into our lives early on, the world could one day be a better place."
Thankfully, Sarah did not stop with publishing a book. She also created a blog where she presents all kinds of ideas in regards to learning how to stop, look and appreciate.
When asked about the mission of her blog, Sarah stated "It is important to think positively more often than most of us do. The opportunity to do so is always with us, not just when 'Treasures' is open. My blog gives this message value. It gives the opportunity to connect, comfort and allow gentle reminders into our unprioritized minds"
'Treasures' has received high praise from readers and reviewers. The book received a five star review from Readers Favorite. In that review, Barbara Fanson stated, "Treasures will remind children that they have a lot more valuable items in their life than they realize." Red City Review said, "The lesson offered is a crucial one, and parents will be sure to support the message that the book is trying to make." Another Amazon reviewer said, "Perfect book for keeping little ones grounded in this high tech, materialistic world." Great word choices tell what children (and everyone) value most. Excellent for grandparents' (and parents') snuggle time . . ."

Writing was Sarah's first love. Her creations started at a very young age with poetry and short stories. As time went on, her passion evolved into songwriting. Sarah enjoyed composing so much that she made plans to pursue it as a career after high school. She was offered a recording contract, but there was a better path in her future.
Creativity took a back seat as Sarah worked towards being the best wife and mother she could be. The music scene made a brief re appearance, but the experience was disappointing to say the least. After that, the pen stood still for quite some time.
From a very young age, Sarah also fought the silent battle of depression. It worsened in time and began to rob her and her family of the happy memories they deserved. Finally, she had enough. That was the day she began her journey to fight instead of give in. The result has been better days.
Sarah taught herself that, among other changes, taking time to find appreciation provides a better outlook and bring light to some darkness. The concept began with "Treasures," the resurrection of her passion for writing. Today, she is proud to be the voice of someone who gets it, someone who still struggles but not ashamed to admit imperfections while trying to help others.
