Yesterday we honored #nationalbeheardday and being heard is a part of the power of International Women’s Day!
Connie reminds everyone of her favorite word: #fierce Connie is one of our characters in #TheTruthAboutHumptyDumpty , a book promoting diversity, inclusion, empathy, and love to stop bullying. Connie is Loving, Fierce and Fearles. We can all use a reminder to be fierce, #fearless and to #ChooseLove at times.
Connie also loves Music. Beyond our song, #Choose Love, she’s a huge Taylor Swift fan. Connie’s favorite Taylor Swift quote is: “I think fearless is having fears but jumping anyway.” Jump. Be Heard. Be Fierce. Be Fearless. Live your Self-Worth.
As a publisher and author of children’s books, I am particularly fond of reading and Dr. Seuss. Today, I continued my volunteer work with Reading Partners Baltimore reading and being read to by a beginning reader. ❤
Reading empowers us… “A person’s a person, no matter how small.” Dr. Seuss
In a 2018, on ideas.ted.com, excerpt from the book, “You, Your Child and School: Navigate Your Way to the Best Education” highlighted the importance of dance education transformational benefits included healthy social relationships, improved academic performance, and physical and mental wellness.
These benefits should be revisited in 2020 as they remain just as important. The #TikTok dance trend demonstrates the importance of dance to build community.
In our children’s book, Ballerina in a Box, we present dance using the story of a ballerina who loses her confidence after a fall. Fearful, Anastasia dances her way into a figurative box to protect herself from hurt. This is a common response for anyone, not just ballerinas. Anastasia finds herself on an unintended moving adventure and in a literal box, from which she dances her way out. Ballerina in a Box is available through LuvStorybooks.shop.
The article also emphasizes the ability of dance to end bullying and school violence. In our children’s book, The Truth About Humpty Dumpty, available, also, at LuvStorybooks.shop, we address bullying and dance. Eddie Egbert, the new egg in the Eggtopia block experiences bullying. Eddie’s differences – there aren’t many green eggs – attract the wrong attention. With perseverance and the encouragement of his Granny, Eddie wins over the bully and creates friends through dance.
We Love the #trending Young black #ballerinas with their #fierce #photo session. We truly love it! One of our missions is to encourage ballerinas to become #bold adults , through our children’s book, #BallerinainaBox – available at LuvStorybooks.shop
Sunday’s are great time to chill, as they say these days. I guess I should introduce myself too, I’m Granny from The Truth About Humpty Dumpty available at LuvStorybooks.shop. I love music and I’ve got moves like Jagger! My Grandson, Eddie, won a dance contest recently! I taught him everything he knows on the dance floor and he’ll tell you so.
So, what else can I tell you about me? I’ve got a playlist! Click on the video below for my top 5! It’s fire!
I agree with the benefits of music. I think Connie told you about them. Well, one thing she didn’t tell you is that it is important to listen but also dance!
