Good kid’s books: Go from dreams to reality through hard work
Good kid’s books start with a dream and become a reality through hard work. Children have dreams too, even at a young age. Evelyn Carr was singing when she was a toddler. Now, at eleven years old, she has already performed at Carnegie Hall! Evelyn says, ” I just love performing. I can hardly sleep before a performance. I’m excited, not nervous. I do auditions a lot. My manager arranges them. I belong to the Manhattan Chorus. With all the stress of school and things, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I don’t know what I would do without this voice.” It’s clear that Evelyn has discovered her passion and she’s working to become the best singer she can be.
My goal is to write good kid’s books that many children will treasure. I try to make the stories entertaining and fill them with important life lessons. One of those is never giving up on your dreams. The first of my good kid’s books is an award-winning true story called Tails of Sweetbrier. It’s the story of a little girl who wants to become a champion horseback rider, against huge odds. My sisters and I learned we should never give up on our dreams if we want to succeed. Tails of Sweetbrier will prove that anything is possible. It will even tell you the secret of success. It was the winner of the silver medal in the Feathered Quill Book Awards contest. I hope that it will inspire you to reach for the stars and have faith in your talent. I’d love to hear that Tails of Sweetbrier is one of your favorite good kid’s books.
