story about character, overcoming diversity and using “voice” to express and show feelings.
MESA, Ariz. (PRWEB) April 05, 2016
Author Linda M. Steiner is making a new marketing push for her book, “Hayley’s Courage: Diversity Builds Character” (published by Lulu), that tells her daughter’s story, about a child born different from the rest, who gains the courage to fit in while building self-confidence, self-respect and self-worth. This is a story about character, overcoming diversity and using “voice” to express and show feelings.
Within “Hayley’s Courage: Diversity Builds Character,” readers are introduced to Hayley – a little girl who was born with a large birthmark on her face. At the start of the story, a boy at school named Cole bullies Hayley. After the two begin to talk, Hayley teaches Cole to accept others and understand why she is different. Hayley’s parents also play a supportive role in nurturing Hayley’s sense of pride in her own individuality.
“‘Hayley’s Courage: Diversity Builds Character’ teaches children the respect and morals we should extend to all individuals,” Steiner says. “The story encourages the goodness of the human spirit and conveys an important message to all children who feel different or challenged. It will be a valuable resource for parents, therapists and educators.”
Steiner hopes her book will also teach children to cease bullying in school and give children who may appear different to their peers a boosted sense of self-esteem.
