Early Praise for Dr. Charlotte Reznick and The Power of Your Child’s Imagination:

“As a skilled psychologist, Dr. Reznick draws from her wealth of experience to offer children and parents a treasure trove of skills to relieve stress. She presents well-written, easy-to-follow tools to use in every situation. From visualization techniques to breathing exercises, Dr. Reznick taps the power of a child's imagination to ensure kids achieve peace and success.” Judith Orloff, M.D., author of Emotional Freedom


“This is one of the most important books ever written, because it teaches you how to teach your kids to deal with fear, anger, anxiety, illnesses, losses and relationships in positive and healthy ways. Imagination is what makes humans different from all other creatures, yet nobody ever teaches us how to use it. Dr. Reznick, who has taught thousands of kids to use their imaginations for health and wellness, shows you how to teach your kids to use their mind/body connection to relax, sleep, study, heal and have healthy responses to life's emotional challenges. EVERY parent, educator and healthcare worker should read this book.”   Martin L. Rossman, M.D., author of Guided Imagery for Self-Healing


“The Power of Your Child’s Imagination is one of the best and creative books for children that I have read. Dr. Reznick clearly “gets” children and understands their fears.  In this book she provides the tools for children to empower themselves to climb out of fear, stress, and pain through their own imagination. This book can guide parents in how to help their children feel good about themselves and competent in the face of stressful situations and internal fears. This book is a “must” for all families with children.” Lonnie Zeltzer, M.D., Director, Pediatric Pain Program, Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA


“Charlotte Reznick’s book, The Power of Your Child's Imagination, is well written and eminently usable. It fills a gap that has existed far too long. Imagery is a powerful tool for healing at all ages, and children have the greatest ability to utilize it. Every helping professional and every parent needs to learn these skills. I know of no better way to learn them than through this fine work. Congratulations, Charlotte!” Emmett Miller, M.D., author of Deep Healing: The Essence of Mind/Body Medicine and Our Culture On The Couch


“Charlotte Reznick has been a gift to so many of my patients, providing children and their families with a unique set of skills to address stress and solve issues.  Now this toolbox is available to everyone. Parents will thank her for this inventive way of helping their children.” Cara Natterson, M.D., author of DANGEROUS or SAFE? Which Foods, Medicines and Chemicals Really Put Your Kids at Risk


"Dr. Charlotte Reznick's book, The Power of Your Child's Imagination, is a treasure chest of imagery-based interventions that can help parents deal more effectively with common childhood challenges. As Dr. Reznick advocates, teaching children to utilize the power of their imagination gives them critical tools for achieving success in all that they do. Every parent should familiarize themselves with the information contained in this book." David E. Bresler, Ph.D., LAc., President of the Academy for Guided Imagery and founder and former Executive Director of the UCLA Pain Control Unit.


“The power of our imaginations to quickly and dramatically change our lives is profound.  Charlotte Reznick makes this process clear, easy, and magical for children and the adults who love them.”  Mimi Doe, Founder of www.SpiritualParenting.com, author of 10 Principles for Spiritual Parenting.

“As a pediatrician, families commonly ask me ways to help their child cope with stress and anxiety. After reading Dr. Reznick’s book, The Power of Your Child’s Imagination, I feel that I am better equipped to assuage their concerns. Dr Reznick lays out 9 simple and fun steps that anyone can follow to help their child cope with life’s toughest moments. The book not only teaches invaluable lessons but takes the reader on a wonderful journey that is whimsical and fun—how could talking to animal friends, wizards and even your own toes not be. As I learned how to tap into these magical imaginary worlds I found myself daydreaming, actually alleviating my own day’s stress. I think every parent and child can grow by utilizing Dr. Reznick’s techniques.” Scott W Cohen, M.D., FAAP, author of Eat, Sleep, Poop, pediatrician and co-founder Beverly Hills Pediatrics


"Dr. Charlotte has given us all a treasure trove of gems brilliantly designed with heart, care, and wisdom. Each of her nine tools are sure to be used in much the same way as an artist would use the primary colors on her pallet to create a masterpiece of success and joy.  The rewards are received as soon as you open the book, open your heart, and receive the inherent gifts of unlimited imagination." Joyce C. Mills, Ph.D., LLC,  founder of the StoryPlay Center, Scottsdale AZ, and co-author of the award winning Therapeutic Metaphors for Children & the Child Within

Lawrence E. Shapiro, Ph.D., author of How to Raise a Child with a High EQ: A Parents' Guide to Emotional Intelligence


“Dr. Reznick’s wonderful book provides an innovative approach to help children work through stressful times.  The Power of Your Child's Imagination guides parents using practical tools to allow children to discover their potential and explore the inner tools we all possess. An important addition to your parenting library!” Lauren Feder, M.D., author of Natural Baby and Childcare and The Parents' Concise Guide to Childhood Vaccinations


“The ability to imagine, visualize and create are becoming increasingly important in our changing world. These are skills children will need to cope and achieve success in the future. This is truly a book that prepares children for the future. I highly recommend it for both educators and parents.” Robert W. Reasoner, retired school superintendent and president of the International Council for Self-Esteem


"Finally a guide for parents that moves beyond child psychology and organized religion as guideposts for ensuring a child's emotional health and moral compass. In The Power of a Child's Imagination, Dr. Reznick gives us the tools to access and care for the very essence of our children's being: their soul. A must for any parent who knows that fortifying our children's inner resources is the deepest expression of our love for them."
