The incredible power of a child’s imagination…
One of the questions I was given by my publisher was to provide 10 phrases that best describe my book, so I thought I would post them here as well, because it truly is meant…
- To celebrate the incredible power of a child’s imagination.
- To inspire confidence and bravery in children regardless of what, or who, Mr. Jingles represents in real life.
- To recognize that Mr. Jingles can represent any obstacle, any fear, any threat, any anxiety, placed upon a child.
- To acknowledge a child’s resiliency, and inspire hope and fearlessness when faced with great odds.
- To never underestimate the the innate empathy and acute peripheral awareness of a child.
- To encourage children to find a trust to confide in should they find themselves in a scary circumstance.
- To aid parents in being able to start difficult conversations by supplementing relatable characters.
- To emphasize the power and magic of the bond between people and animals, and how impactful that bond can be towards comfort and healing.
- To recognize it is the smallest voices that sometimes speak the loudest, and have the greatest need to be heard.
- Lastly, it is a poetic cautionary tale, but also one of empowerment, bravery, and survival, in response to unyielding adversity.
