Kid’s books: Goals

Too often when you read news today, you hear about teens who don’t know the value of setting goals. If you write kid’s books, you might choose to have your main character learn the value of perseverance and setting goals. Tennessee teen, Kevuntez King is a wonderful example of a young man who focused on his goal and achieved it. What did he do? He sold newspapers from the time he was twelve to he turned seventeen. Are you wondering what Kevuntez’ goal was? He wanted to earn enough money for college. Here are his thoughts on it:

“I just stay away from the negativity and try to always be positive,” Kevuntez King told WHBQ. He said, he ” grew up in a single-parent home with his mother, whose influence paved his way to success.She just taught me how to be independent like she had it, (and) she just wanted me to go get it myself,”

“When it came down to school, my mom didn’t have to come out-of-pocket to do anything or I didn’t have to take out any loans to go to school,” he told WHBQ.

Here is Kevuntez’ excellent advice for other young people:

“Make sure you surround yourself with people that’s trying to go up in life and not trying to bring you down. Just stay positive and always believe in yourself and push for it.”

Kevuntez and his Mom must be extremely proud of his huge accomplishments. He’s a wonderful example for everyone. If you enjoy kid’s books with an emphasis on setting goals, you may like my books Charlie the Horse and Tails of Sweetbrier.  The first of the aforementioned kid’s books, Charlie the Horse, is told by Charlie himself. He learns how important it is to set goals and focus on them. Tails of Sweetbrier is a true autobiography about a little girl with a big dream. It shows readers perseverance can change your life.
