April 12, ’18 Summer Reading Self-Esteem

As ever buy a book, book a show… My highlight reel, biography, book synopsis and contact information are a few clicks away. You can scroll down to my blog. Hope you come back soon…!

She’s Got it in Spades…

Friends of the Library raise funds all year long in support of the summer reading programs. They are selfless citizens dedicated to the proposition that the most precious natural resource is life! Sort of  love life locally but think globally… These peeps wear glasses and have books on their coffee tables.

Aside from the juggling and comedy my show is really about infusing my young readers with a sense of self esteem. Inner self confidence is a construction project. We don’t come ready made with very much of this appreciation in our own abilities. We need to have an elder guide us to the location of this cultivated inner resource.

Brilliant Child One

Having the Heart to Try

I use volunteers to accomplish all manner of amazing tasks. Most of the children succeed, some struggle but learn right in front of an audience, and the biggest gift is the look of determination on their faces as they risk trying.

No admission charge the summer reading program is aimed at creating a safe, non-commercial- free to the public event where parents and children, friends and neighbors, librarians and volunteers can gather for the important purpose of building a more resilient community.

So I do take offense at politicians too mightily focused on tax cuts. I am one of the many who believe our children are a future worthy of investing in. We want our employers to have access to the brightest, best educated, most self confident college graduates our country can create.

Risk Taking Two

True Grit Uncovered

Go see a show this summer. Support your summer reading program. Sell a cupcake and give the proceeds to your library. Read a book. Volunteer to help children learn how to read. Be sure to be enthusiastic about these little new people. Encourage them. Tell them how good they are. Our kindness and helping hand up might well be one of the single best ways we preserve our freedoms and protect our liberties. We give without limit. Love and kindness is infinite. You’ll see your generosity shining back in the eyes of the children looking up to you.
