It all began when James Peterson was a camp counselor and two children, watching him meditate, described the colors they saw around his form: “…we saw colors coming out of his stomach. And the outside was purple, then it was blue, then it was yellow, then reddish and light yellow in the middle.” Studies indicate that almost seven percent of young children have such psychic experiences. For the most part, they don’t tell anybody about them for fear of being ridiculed. But the author believes it would be psychologically healthy for them to relate such occurrences to adults if they feel the need. In this book Peterson has put together a charming collection of case-histories about such psychic episodes. He believes they should be accepted as factual: that frequently they emanate from the “wisdom of innocence” present in youngsters. The question of the secret life of kids is examined by Peterson from the point of view of philosophy, occultism, and child psychology. He suggests why and how such experiences manifest, and their potential value to the child’s growth pattern.
Blending Eastern and Western philosophies with insights into nature, ecology, and physiology, this exploration of the place of humankind within the universe —and our individual stations—is both intellectual and approachable. Thinkers, writers, scientists, and educators of all stripes come together to examine subjects ranging from the nature of reality to brain science to the impact of technology on our world views, and more. They reveal that "the universe" may actually be comprised of multiple "universes" that overlap like the skin of an onion; peel away one layer of reality, and there’s others waiting to be experienced, if not completely understood. The book presents intriguing ideas from visionaries ranging from Jesus to Galileo, Newton to Descartes, and Kant to Einstein, among many others.

This fully illustrated album was compiled by an esteemed botanist by the name of Professor Arbour for her goddaughter and discovered by readers of today. The book features photographs and sketches made by the botanist, and details the secret role of fairies in everyday nature: checking flowers each morning to make sure that plants have enough dew; helping flowers to bloom at the right time, and in the right colour; creating a bluebell forest each spring; clearing the forest floor of leaves and broken twigs; playing tricks on adults, and making the seasons come and go. Both a natural history and a practical guide to spotting and caring for fairies, the book comes with a strong warning that the privilege of seeing fairies (mostly by children) should not be taken lightly.
