“We live in a world with other people, and children need to learn how to respect and be kind to each other. We also need to learn to take responsibility for what we do, and own up to our mistakes. When we don’t get what we want, we need to learn to be patient.
I wanted to write all of these concepts into my stories. While the rhyming is fun and helps children learn English, I believe building character with moral values is even more important.
As our children grow up, they will interact with a wide range of people in school, work, and society in general. I think as parents we should help prepare them as responsible and caring people for the world.”
