As an author, one of my many privileges is bringing stories to life.  My ultimate objective is to create a reading experience that kids and families will enjoy.  Some elements that I use in creating and presenting stories include:

Children love music!  In their eyes, music is magical, wonderful, and captivating. They enjoy singing, dancing, and listening to the sounds and beats of music.

Beautiful Pictures

There is a saying that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  For children, visualization and pictures are imperative for bringing stories to life.  As the young mind develops, pictures express many words and phrases becoming its own language. So pick a book that will pull your child into the story visually.
