I want young girls to see a powerful character who has a positive attitude.
STRASBURG, Pa. (PRWEB) June 16, 2016
Unfortunately in this day and age, when people hear the term 'teenage girls', they immediately jump to negative stereotypes like those portrayed in “Mean Girls.”
Sandra Addis was a teacher for 33 years and saw many young women grow strong, smart and cooperative as they moved on to do wonderful things. Her new book, “3 Sprites and a Bed,” aims to help inspire pre-teen girls by providing them with a positive role model in main character Emily.
Emily discovers three magical sprites living in a bed she finds in an antique store. They plead for her help in saving them, but the only way she can is by buying the bed. This leads to a host of adventures for Emily, providing her with life lessons and a greater sense of responsibility. Emily must find a job, overcome unpredictable obstacles like breaking her arm, study for finals and maintain a positive relationship with her parents.
“I want young girls to see a powerful character who has a positive attitude, is cooperative, takes challenges head-on and always wants to be helpful,” Addis said.
Mixing the whimsy of children’s fantasy with real-world lessons prepping young women for their transition into adulthood, “3 Sprites and a Bed” aims to inspire strength, intelligence and a desire to help others.
