Animal stories for kids:Do what you love
I love writing animal stories for kids. My goal is to make them fun to read and convey good values as well. In my fictional stories the animals talk. They have important things to share, while they’re also amusing. No matter what you choose to do, be sure you’re doing what you love. The passion you have will be displayed in your work. Thirteen year-old Alex Angelo is definitely doing something he adores. He’s already a DJ (short for Disc Jockey). He began playing music at just seven years old. He spent his birthday money to buy some used equipment. Now he has his own radio show called Radio Disney with Alex Angelo. Recently Alex was asked about how people were reacting to the radio show. Her is his response: “It’s going great. People are saying they love it and I’m really happy that they are enjoying my work. I love seeing all the comments on Twitter and Instagram about it, telling me everything that they love and requesting songs.” Alex says he likes” getting comments and tweets from his listeners. He plays different types of music and talks about whatever is going on. He also loves dancing and has been doing that since he was seven years old. Who do you think is one of Alex’s idols? It’s Justin Timberlake. Alex says he loves “the squeaky clean image” that Justin Timberlake enjoys. One very important piece of advice that Alex shares is ” Just because other people don’t understand you or don’t like you, doesn’t mean that you don’t have to like you. So always be yourself, no matter what anybody else says.” I think that’s an excellent strategy, don’t you? In my fictional animal stories for kids, the characters discover their talents. For example in Charlene the Star, Charlene wonders where she fits in and needs to find her natural talent. In Charlie the Horse, Charlie has big dreams and has important lessons to learn along the path to success. In another of my animal stories for kids, Charlene the Star and Hattie’s Heroes, Hattie the chicken learns she’s not only good at wearing pretty bonnets. I hope you love whatever you choose to do and that you enjoy reading animal stories for kids.
