I have a thing ... a thing about putting pressure on kids unnecessarily and taking away their voice.

And, I have a thing about making kids think that perfection is something designed by advertisers, marketers and social media.

This 21 page eBook identifies and investigates these ‘things’.  Created for workshops with students and parents trying to make school ‘work for them’.

SOME OF MY THOUGHTS

  • A children’s book where resilience triumphs.
  • Follow Tabitha and Ruby as they go on a search to find their Granny. They’ve come to Granny’s farm for their annual Easter egg hunt, but Mr Christian, a not so friendly rooster, decides to spoil their day. The other animals decide to help the girls. When they ask Mr Christian for help he lies to them. In the end, a magpie and a frog help the girls find Granny Jen, and Mr Christian learns an important lesson. Or does he?
  • This is an important story, with beautiful and bright photographs. Its rare positive approach to a dangerous childhood problem, bullying, makes it a delight to read aloud and opens the door to great discussions.

CREATE A MARKETING HEADLINE

  1. Your “elevator pitch” is  one or two sentences that succinctly tell readers what the book is about and why they should buy it. No clichés.
  2. Compare your work to a well-known author, title, or film to give a reader a point of reference. Maximum 25 words

MINE:

  • When resilience triumphs, real heroes stand tall and cheer quietly.
  • A children’s book where resilience triumphs.
  • Follow Tabitha and Ruby as they go on a search to find their Granny. In the end, a magpie and a frog help the girls find Granny Jen, and Mr Christian learns an important lesson. Or does he?
  • This is an important story, with beautiful and bright photographs. Its rare positive approach to a dangerous childhood problem, bullying, makes it a delight to read aloud and opens the door to great discussions.
