This Real Life Books LLC

This Real Life Books are stories that were created to help children deal with real-life situations that are emotionally challenging. These stories help parents explain difficult transitions such as death, separation, divorce, interracial families and racial/gender identity in a loving, healthy and magical way. Stories that help develop confidence and love through adversity. Life can be hard but you don’t have to lose the magic while living it.

The beauty of our books is we are teaching your children Emotional Intelligence while telling them a story that is engaging and full of life lessons. One of our aims is to inspire children to be the heroes and heroines of their own stories.

Our Mission

The ultimate goal of This Real Life Books is to create a platform where children who have been abused in all forms, are encouraged to “Always Speak Your Truth”, without the fear of shame, blame or harm. We want to create a safe space for children and adults to heal from the traumas that have been afflicted on them by society and its members. A space to tell the world what happened to them so the cycle of abuse can end.

Our Vision

This Real Life Books vision is to teach Emotional Intelligence to children, heal the inner child, and eliminate the triggers of trauma globally by stopping them at their source! We do this by empowering people and teaching them compassion for themselves and others. We want to create a trauma-free society and replace it with love, compassion and common sense laws that protect the most vulnerable of society. No more secrets! No more victims!
