My Cartoon Imagination at School
Have you ever looked at someone and thought they looked like another person, an animal, or your favorite cartoon character? Yes? Well, I invite you to take this journey along with Samara as she explores her world with her vivid imagination! Both books contain moments of bravery, understanding, and optimism which are traits that effectively help children be more open to receiving the care they need at medical institutions and while interacting at school. My first book, My Cartoon Imagination at School, will show boys and girls a different way of looking at the world around them when they are nervous about doing a presentation at school. Standing up in front of the classroom will make even your most confident child become weak in the knees and nervous! Some of us grew up with the idea of “just imagine them in their underwear" but this advice has never helped me or any of my friends growing up. (Needless to say, I do not believe that this advice was meant to be shared with children anyway.) I wanted to give children a fun way to use their imaginations to get over their stage fright that comes with giving oral book reports or presentations in front of the class. I am hoping that they will connect with Samara's character in the story and realize that they too can succeed as she did after getting over her fears. She even got a great grade in the end and rushed home to share this great news with her mother! They can tap into their imaginary superpowers and visualize themselves as victorious in any situation!
