Title: Generation Next: A Journal of Life
Author: Chanda W. Johnson
Publisher: Self published, 2017
Let’s face it, our kids are living a very kind of childhood than we did. We ran outside until it was dark, meanwhile our children stay inside on their electronic devices. Generation Next is an attempt to help children develop healthy, confident, and active lives. Chanda W. Johnson offers Generation Next as a journal for children to discover who they are, where they are from, what they like, and how to find what makes them happy presently and in the future. She encourages children to be creative, imaginative, open and adventurous. She offers a way for the next generation to take charge of their own happiness and fulfilment. After offering am encouraging portion, the author presents questions for the reader to think about. Not only does she inspire the readers to become the greater version of themselves, she helps the reader find the source of this greatness- our Creator. I recommend this book for children age 8 to 12. I have always wanted the school curriculum to provide more than just education but encourage personal and cultural esteem and teach life skills. This book is a great attempt to fill that void. I give this book 5 stars.
