Every word out of their mouths were ‘I can’t, I don’t know how’—I knew then that these children needed to develop a ‘can do’ attitude.
MINNEAPOLIS (PRWEB) September 18, 2014
Discussing goals, self-esteem and attitude with your children can be a difficult task. Author and former early childhood development specialist Valerie Christianson provides and easy way for children to broach this difficult subject with her new book, “Little Breeze.”
“Little Breeze” is an inspiring tale about teaching children self-esteem and gaining a “can do” attitude. It shares the story of Little Breeze as he sets goals, works hard and struggles with fear of failure before finally reaching his goal.
“One of the reasons why I wrote this book happened during my first year of teaching 5 year-olds. They came into my class not having even the basic skills of putting on their coats or putting the coats away. Every word out of their mouths were ‘I can’t, I don’t know how’—I knew then that these children needed to develop a ‘can do’ attitude,” Christianson said.
“Little Breeze” also touches on the topics of unconditional love, support and the importance of saying “thank you.” Additionally, the book boasts whimsical, bright illustrations by Stacey Harcey that help children understand the story.
