kid’s chapter books: possibilities
Whether you’re writing kid’s chapter books or just trying to instill good values in your children, it’s good to know that all things are possible. We tend to only be limited by our own thoughts and we may give up on our dreams if we fail. What if Thomas Edison had given up on his inventions because he failed time and time again? What if we have great ideas but we are afraid to introduce them? This was not the case with a courageous young lady named Malala Yousafzai,who has recently been awarded the Liberty Medal. You may recall that she has also won the Nobel Peace Prize. What did Malala do to warrant such high honors? She became a champion for young girls in her native country, Pakistan. She was shot in the head two years ago by terrorists because she encouraged young girls to get an education. Here is what she said after winning her latest award:
“It’s not just a golden medal which you wear,” she said. “It’s hope, it’s courage, and it’s support.” She added, “I accept this award on behalf of all the children around the world who are struggling to get an education.” Malala plans to donate the $100,000 prize that comes with the Liberty Medal to her home country of Pakistan to further education for young people. She’s a shining example of someone who believes anything is possible. Her dream is to allow young ladies in her country to enjoy the education they deserve. Malala knows that this is the key which opens doors to endless possibilities to children around the world. Malala is the youngest person to earn both the Nobel Peace Prize and the Liberty Medal. She is just seventeen years old and look what she’s accomplished. It’s amazing, isn’t it? Malala could write an amazing kid’s chapter book someday about her dreams of making an education available for children everywhere.
Just like Malala, I believe all things are possible if you never give up on your dreams. The first of my kid’s chapter books is Tails of Sweetbrier, an autobiography detailing my journey from a handicapped child to a champion horseback rider. It will show you why I believe that you should always follow your dreams. You can succeed, even against the odds. If you’re looking for an inspirational story, I hope you choose Tails of Sweetbrier as one of your favorite kid’s chapter books.
Update: Malala has won many awards since this article was first posted. For example, she won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014. In addition, she has spoken at the United Nations. She’s still determined to make a difference to young women around the world.
