Is the decrease in reading affecting children’s ability to imagine? Mother of three, A.J. Kenyon believes reading is key in children’s development.
In her new youth novel, “Joey Willis to Another World”, Kenyon aims to spark both children and parents imagination. With dragons, caves and magical powers seen throughout the book, Kenyon brings to life the imaginary games she played with her own children.
“As a parent, I felt it was my duty to teach my children to read, otherwise, how could they learn to imagine,” Kenyon stated. “Once children have the confidence in their reading abilities, their imagination can run wild with pretend stories. I believe this creativity will bolster success throughout the rest of a child’s life.”
An adventurous book that parents can read with their child, this story follows Joey Willis’ magical journey to find his sister. Illustrating the power of a family, “Joey Willis to Another World” shapes the world of fiction into an exciting battle of innocent’s verses illogical mischief.
“I wanted Joey Willis to be a role model for my young readers,” Kenyon said. “At first Joey faces misunderstandings and differences that sprout unfortunate situations. By learning to look at situations from all points of view, Joey eventually gains irreplaceable characteristics of understanding, knowledge and forgiveness.”
