Author Mary Nhin identified a void in the publishing community while raising her 3 young boys who, like many other young children, experienced a wide range of emotions like anger, sadness, anxiety, and love. Since there were few social/emotional wellness books with an engaging, entertaining angle in the market, Mary got to work! Based on relatable real-life experiences, Ninja Life Hacks was born and experienced immediate success – as both sales and positive reviews flooded in.
Mary Nhin shared, “We think parents and teachers are heroes and we know that life for them, and their children, is hard! And we want to help in any way possible. Ninja Life Hacks provides the tools that kids need to deal with difficult, everyday emotions!”
“At this moment in time, the world needs Ninja Life Hacks more than ever,” explained Brand Liaison’s Laurie Smith. “Recent mental health research indicates that a number of factors can protect children from negative emotional wellbeing including cultivating personal social and emotional skills like motivation, cooperativeness, and self-worth. Furthermore, high emotional intelligence leads to better decision making in all aspects of life – financial, personal, and business. Ninja Life Hacks helps to strengthen children’s mental wellness and prepare kids for life’s challenges. We are honored to expand the reach of this very important franchise through licensing.”
