SPREADING THE MESSAGE OF ROTARY THROUGH THE POWER OF STORYTELLING: CHILDREN’S AUTHOR TEAMS UP WITH NOT-FOR-PROFITS TO PROMOTE LITERACY AND FUND RAISING
Reading offers wonderful benefits to children. It builds their confidence and self-esteem, encourages leadership, improves emotional intelligence, helps them sleep soundly, inspires them, and above all, it makes them happy.
When we introduce kids early on to true-to-life motivational stories told minute-by-minute, as it seems to a nine-year-old boy, we give them strong awareness which in turn will help them become even more responsible in life.
Getting the message across through a recognizable character will help the children to easily connect with and relate to the story. “Children tend to follow characters that remind them of themselves,” says Author and fellow Rotarian, Thomas M. Kinslow.
