kid’s chapter books: share experiences
Suppose you wanted to write remarkable kid’s chapter books. One thing you might consider is sharing your won experiences. Children will relate to your triumphs and trials. That’s exactly what Lucas and Noah Aldrich are doing. Noah is eight years old. He loves all kinds of activities, even triathalons. But his little brother, Lucas, was born with a rare brain disease which keeps him from talking, walking, or feeding himself. The boys have a strong bond. They love watching cartoons together. But that’s not all. When Noah heard their local YMCA was having a mini-triathalon for kids, he wanted to share the event with Lucas. They trained for 3 months. During the swimming portion, Noah pulled Lucas along in a raft. What did Noah do for the biking segment of the race? He pedaled the bike, while pulling Lucas in a trailer. Finally, there was the one mile run. Noah was tiring, but he pushed Lucas across the finish line. The boys’ mom. Alyssa, said “Lucas was beaming. I think he knew he was part of something pretty special.’ The boys were part of Team Lucas House, a non-profit organization that Alyssa started in honor of Lucas.
Noah and Lucas are a great team, don’t you agree? Noah says, “I love everything about my brother. He’s perfect.”
I’ve written four kid’s chapter books. The first of them was an award-winning true story, Tails of Sweetbrier. It’s a story that proves anything is possible if you persevere. It’s my journey from a handicapped child to a champion horseback rider. If you read it you’ll learn about the decision my dad made that changed my whole life. The first of my kid’s chapter books is the winner of the silver medal in the Feathered Quill book awards. I hope you read it’s one of your favorite kid’s chapter books.
