Non-Fiction books for kids: set goals


How important is it for you to set goals if you’re writing non-fiction books for kids? Without goals, how will you stay motivated? Let me introduce you to Grace Bush. What makes Grace different from the average sixteen year-old? She has already graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a Bachelor’s Degree in criminal justice.  You’re probably thinking of how amazing that accomplishment is, but there’s even more stunning news to share.  As a motivated, gifted, student, Grace participated in a program that allowed her to take high school and college courses at the same time. She received her high school diploma a week after graduating from Florida Atlantic University.

Grace has received plenty of attention for her outstanding achievements, but she hasn’t been too busy to save time for things she loves outside of school work. She enjoys playing the flute, for example. Grace doesn’t think that being the youngest student in more than 100 years to graduate from Florida International University is anything extraordinary. Perhaps this is because she comes from a family of “overachiever.” All nine children in her family is home schooled. Grace was quite good at reading when she was barely a toddler because she listened to her older sisters, Gabrielle, and Gisla. She began taking high school courses when she was thirteen. What does Grace have planned for the future?  She has received scholarship  to Florida International University, where she will study law, in hopes of becoming the   Supreme Court Justice someday! Isn’t that amazing? Grace has lofty goals indeed. I’ll bet she meets them with flying colors! Maybe she will even write  non-fiction books for kids with advice for other children on how to realize their dreams.She might even write non-fiction books for kids about her amazing journey in school. What does Grace think about her success? She said, “It’s not hard. It’s just hard work. I’m just a normal kid. I still goof around.”

Are you looking for entertaining non-fiction books to inspire your child? Tails of Sweetbrier is an award-winning autobiography about a little girl who has to overcome big obstacles to reach the goals she set. Tails of Sweetbrier is a true story that proves how important it is to work toward your goals and follow your dreams. I hope you think that it’s one of the best non-fiction books you’ve ever read.
