Civic Education for Children

Every library should include a section of books on civic education for children. This illustrated children’s book is written using the holistic language acquisition approach, enabling mentorship for children so that they can learn advanced concepts that are rarely addressed at an early age.

Educational aids are crucial to a child’s development. Supplying those aids in a form that is engaging and interesting to a child’s mind is the key to ensuring that the information is absorbed. Introducing advanced concepts to young minds provides them with the foundations they need to explore their world and question their surroundings. Investigative thinking comes naturally to children. Questions about everything that affects them are based on their intrinsic desire to know how things relate to each other.

There are hundreds of influences on our daily lives, and children must learn how to navigate those influences as they grow. Educational aids that allow them to absorb the spoken and unspoken rules of society provide a seamless introduction to complex matters. Illustrated children’s books enable young minds to view issues like politics, health, and social behavior in an appealing and informative manner.


How to become President

How to become President is primarily intended to educate children about the basics of the election process by introducing relevant vocabulary and concepts in a light, humorous and engaging way. It is not a dry recitation of rules and procedures; it provides a glimpse of the passions and sentiments surrounding elections without delving into political differences. The book is written within the paradigm of fables, a well-established educational model that has been used by our ancestors from around the world for thousands of years to teach children. Through the use of characters, the book demonstrates which personal qualities and skills, such as resilience, self-control, and a balanced, well-reasoned debating style, can lead to success and what personal weaknesses can lead to failure.

We all hope that our future generations will be wise and just. We all do our best to provide them with the knowledge they need to achieve that goal.

A caterpillar that wanted to become a dragon

A caterpillar that wanted to become a dragon

A caterpillar that wanted to become a dragon is a book in progress. The text is complete, but the author is working on illustrations. It is a story that contains a touch of envy, a whole lot of awe, a good deal of mentorship for children, and the inevitable metamorphosis.

The idea of the book was born out of a playful, dramatic improvisation between a mother and a daughter. The book tangentially covers such important subjects as nutrition, healthy eating, and exercise, but in a way that is non-didactic, humorous, and open to dramatic interpretation by the adult reader. A lot of attention is paid to multi-dimensional character development and the liveliness of the dialogue.

The story was read to a 6-year-old boy who lives next door to the author:

"I eat green leaves too, like spinach, and they are crunchy!"
