Sam the Tram’s Dance Club is a children’s book unlike any other. The text is an Empowerment Script™. It’s meant to be read back and forth, from left to right and then right to left. The first line of text is written

just > as > you > are > reading,


Left > to > right,


This style of writing, invented by the Ancient Greeks, stimulates connection between the two sides of the brain. The bilateral eye movements help can help any reader relax, let go of stress, and be more creative. Professionals familiar with EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) will see the potential for readers with trauma or dissociation. This reading technique also holds promise for ADHD (attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder) and dyslexia.

Join Sam, Melba, and the kids as they fix Grand Union Junction and learn to dance the “tramba.” Children can read this book alone or by following an adult’s finger movements. Grown-ups enjoy the book too!

With colorful illustrations, a gentle story about overcoming difficulties, and a breakthrough approach to reading, Sam the Tram’s Dance Club offers readers preschool and up a calming, fun way to build new neural pathways and healthier states of mind.
