As the author of 4 children’s books, one thing I like to do is to show my characters helping others, while making the story fun to read. In my book, Charlene the Star and Hattie’s Heroes, the animals start a coaching business to help other horses with training problems. The animals set goals and work together to reach them. I want my books to contain important life lessons that readers will remember. An example of someone who started helping others at just ten years old is Allana Wall. What did Allanna decide to do? She brings smiles to girls with disabilities by using her talents as a nail artist. She realized she could help disabled girls or those who are hospitalized, feel pampered by painting their nails. If the girls wanted something unique, she could paint animals or palm trees on their nails. She started her own organization called “Polished Girlz.” Today Allana has hundreds of volunteers who partner with her and bring smiles to young ladies around the country. She found a great way to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
When I write kid’s books, I love to have the characters focused on helping others, because it’s an important message to share. In my books, Charlie Horse, Charlene the Star, and Charlene the Star and Hattie’s Heroes, the animal characters tell the story. They love to help others and they find creative ways to donate to charities. I love my kid’s books to specialize in promoting positive messages for kids. My fictional kid’s books highlight things like sharing, teamwork, helping others and setting goals.I hope my kid’s books are among your favorites.
