Danny Yukon and the Secrets of the Amazing Lamp--Elementary Edition is the story of a young boy who overcomes the loss of his father —a U.S. soldier serving in Afghanistan. As a result of the tragedy, Danny becomes mute. At night, his dreams are haunted by a ferocious tiger. It is not until his uncle gives Danny an amazing lamp—and teaches him how to be more mindful— that he learns the key to his powers lies within.
Danny Yukon and the Secrets of the Amazing Lamp is the first book in the I’mAGine Series, a collection created by former NFL player and international meditation and fitness expert Prince Daniels, Jr., and written by award-winning author and playwright Pamela Hill Nettleton. I’mAGine is meant to be pronounced “I’m a genie.” The series seeks to teach children the benefits and practices of mindfulness. It speaks to the powers of peace and healing that live within us all. This edition is adapted from the Youth Edition, with simple sentences, large type, and colorful pages.
“Through the I’mAGine Series, Prince Daniels aims to awaken the inner genie in each reader using visualization and other proven methods that enhance a person’s focusing ability. Organizations and individuals looking for ways to motivate youth to read and expose them to creating a healthy lifestyle that encompasses physical, mental and spiritual well-being may use this book as a beginning.”– Maxine Smith Ed.D., Executive Director, Mayor’s Commission for Children, Youth and Families, Charleston, SC.
“The lessons provided in this book are a Godsend for parents who need help with getting their kids to focus in school, and even to fall asleep at night. Since learning about Prince and this new book, I have seen firsthand how it has helped a child in my life to accomplish these tasks. I can’t say enough good things; I highly recommend it.”– Susaye Greene, former member of the Supremes and an Ambassador to the Goodwill Treaty for World Peace.
