In this materialistic society, how does one go about teaching children to avoid the harmful forces of materialism? This illustrated story will give you the tools to help your children focus less on material things and much more on the important things in life, such as health, family, and friendship.

This inspiring fable tells the story of The Juice of Life, in which the Lion arranges an exciting meeting for all the animals. At this meeting, he presents them with a very interesting life lesson.

  • Why did the Lion arrange the meeting?
  • Does the juice of life taste as good as it smells?
  • What is the Lion planning to say?
  • Will the Lion’s message change the lives of the animals?

One of the toughest places to combat excessive consumerism is with today’s children. Advertisers spend millions of dollars and employ teams of child psychologists to convince our children to constantly want and collect more stuff. Some youth advertisers actually call parents “gatekeepers”, whom they must circumvent to reach the kids. Of course we’re gatekeepers! We’re parents! It’s our job to protect and nurture, to help our children grow into healthy, confident, and caring adults. Fortunately, there are many ways to do this, even in our materialistic culture. One important way is through education.

The lesson of this book is best expressed in this inspirational quote by Lionel Shriver :"A lot of people get so hung up on what they can't have that they don't think for a second about whether they really want it."

This well-written and inspiring story will help you to teach your children an important way of thinking with regard to jealousy, greed, and materialism.

The Juice of Life is an entertaining read before bedtime, with the whole family, or as self-reading for older children. Additionally, it is a great resource for teachers and counselors to share with individual students or in a class.

With vibrant, delightful illustrations and easy-to-digest lessons, children will learn of a life that is much happier and richer–in health, family, and friendship!
