Children are our passion! If you are a parent, grandparent, teacher or just love children, you know how special they are. You also know it can be challenging to guide and protect them throughout their life's journey. We are here to make it a little easier for you and a lot of fun for them!
The iWonder Star company was co-founded by two friends, Jana and Maria, who connected based on their deep love for children and their common interest in neuroscience and psychology. They spent years researching and training in techniques to help children grow their natural curiosity, sense of wonder, critical thinking, problem solving and self-regulation. Their work is embodied in iWonder Star, a friendly and kind star character, who helps children understand their thoughts and emotions and how they can create positive outcomes out of any challenging situation in their life. With iWonder Star's unique guidance, children learn to be resilient, confident, strong, positive and happy. iWonder Star is a must-have tool for empowering and teaching children self-awareness and social-emotional skills, which are becoming increasingly more important in today's world.
The first book from the iWonder Star series is called iWonder Star and Happy Peter and we are excited to share it with you. Get your copy today! Our second book, iWonder Star and Beautiful Sarah, will be available this summer and will be followed by several other books we are planning in the series to help children with different skills and situational challenges. Our books are suitable for children of ages 5+ but they are also helpful for adults. We highly recommend that you read them too. Enjoy and please share your feedback! We are so thankful for your interest and support.
Jana is originally from the Czech Republic, where she earned degrees in Preschool Teaching and Social Law. From an early age, Jana took a natural interest in psychology and the human brain development. Following her passion for helping people, Jana continued her education and expanded her professional skills in life coaching through Coach Training Alliance. Jana loves working with children and coaching them to grow into confident and successful human beings. She also enjoys writing the amazing iWonder Star children's book series. Jana is a mom to a 15-year old exceptional hockey player and their dog Gordy.
Maria is originally from Armenia and has a multicultural background. She attributes her open-mindedness to the influence of her Greek grandmother and being displaced by a devastating earthquake in childhood that forced her family to live abroad for a number of years. Maria's dream was to pursue higher education in the USA, where she earned her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Economics and Business. Her true passion is to empower children and youth so they too can pursue their dreams and create a positive life. Maria is a mom to a sweet little girl, who is iWonder Star's biggest fan.
