non fiction books for kids: attitude
Have you read riveting non fiction books for kids lately? You need to have an engaging story if you want young readers to keep turning the pages. Sometimes you entertain children with your non-fiction book, and other times you inspire them. Today you’ll find out about an amazing little ten year-old named Sunny Logan. She really lives up to her name because she has a remarkable attitude. She managed to stay positive, even when doctors said she had a rare form of cancer called Burkitt’s Lymphoma. When Sunny heard about her disease, she told her Mom ‘Well, if I can go to St. Jude, that’s where I want to go.” Sunny must have realized St. Jude was the place with the most advanced treatments for cancer. Sunny went through some difficult times, but the good news is she’s now cancer-free.
Sunny has played tennis since she was five years-old. She loves it. When Sunny learned the wonderful news that she was healthy again, she went to The IMG Academy to celebrate and play tennis. Guess who she met while she was there? Sunny met and played against her idol, Maria Sharapova! She was so excited. Sunny believes her passion for tennis made her stronger. Her inner strength helped her beat cancer. Here’s what Sunny said about the time she spent with Maria Sharapova:
“We had been talking about her all day,” Logan told Matt Lauer live on TODAY Tuesday. “She was on the Hall of Fame board, and they had pictures of her everywhere. I was hitting some serves and I turn around, and there she is, and I was just speechless. I did not know what to do.” Sunny is an amazing young lady.
Maria Sharapova even commented that “She hoped to see Sunny on the professional courts someday.”
Sunny, I hope all your dreams come true. Would you like to write non fiction books for kids sometime? I think children would love them and be so encouraged, especially when they faced tough challenges.
