kid’s books: Never waver
Suppose you have always wanted to write kid’s books, but your work has been rejected again and again. Do you have to abandon your dreams? Let’s consider the story of Ava Lins. She is the young lady who lost her job at Seven Eleven after she gave a free cup of coffee to a homeless person. She cared about the welfare of the man and she did what she could to help him. But her boss took a different view of the situation. He thought it was an unacceptable act, so Ava was fired. Ava turned to social media and contacted local media outlets as well. She was quickly offered a full-time job working for a company called Citizens for Adequate Housing. The owner of the company was impressed by Ava’s genuine concern for others, and the kindness she showed the downtrodden customer. Even though Ava was offered her old job back, she decided she didn’t want to go back. She wanted something better. Her new position allows Ava to support a cause she is passionate about. Sadly, Ava knows about homelessness from first-hand experience. She was forced to leave her mom’s house at eighteen, so she lived with friends, or in her car until she had money for an apartment. Are you wondering what Ava thinks about the whole situation?
“My lesson learned is that good deeds pay off, Ava tells Yahoo Shine. “Do what you believe is the right thing, and stand up for what you believe in. Only good things will come of it.” Clearly, she is a young lady who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to stand for her principles. She should be very proud, don’t you agree?
No matter what you’d like to achieve, never waver from your goals. In my kid’s book, Charlie the Horse, the story is told from Charlie’s point of view. Charlie learns it’s important to set goals and keep working toward them, even if he doesn’t feel like working. I think kid’s books need great positive messages that they will remember. Kid’s books with important life lessons will be cherished and will help guide kids through their lives.
