I want kids to realize how important they are, but more significantly I want them to realize they can be leaders.
Odenton, MD (PRWEB) December 13, 2013
There’s Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Grandparent’s Day, but what about a Children’s Day?
Author Thelma Thompson deals with this very question in her new children’s book, “Children’s Day.” A precocious young girl leads everyone she knows to local government figures then all the way to the White House to figure out why kids do not get a day.
“As any parent would know, realistically every day is Children’s Day,” Thompson said, “I want kids to realize how important they are, but more significantly I want them to realize they can be leaders and that asking questions is a power they should use.”
With wonderful pictures and easy-to-read rhyming, “Children’s Day” allows kids to learn about government, the importance of asking questions, the power of imagination and most importantly how to become leaders.
“I believe empowering children early in life is necessary for them to develop confidence,” Thompson said. “That is one reason why I made the president in my story a female. I want little girls to know in this day and age they can accomplish anything they set their mind to.”
