Recently I had the opportunity to speak to students who are members of the Wells County Public Library’s Junior Library (JL) Crew. It was snowing outside, but inside we were sharing thoughts about writing, Taylor Swift, and dreaming about what we’d like to be.
Using my biography on Taylor Swift, I talked to the kids about how dreaming could help them get through rough points in life. Every child needs a dream, something to look forward to in life, something exciting they want to do as a career when they grow up.
If you don’t have a dream like that, you can start one today! There’s lots of benefits. Dreaming helps keep you focused on doing well in school; which friends to hang out with; and what to do in your spare time. You can’t mess up too often, or your dream will go down the drain — or at least get clogged halfway down the drain.
The kids at this library were attentive and full of questions. It was a great 45 minutes. I admit, I prayed for all of them to get home safely, due to the snow (I think they must have because I saw them all at school the next day).
I enjoy speaking to students in elementary and middle school Grades about writing. Ask your local library to schedule me for a book talk. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After you’ve read these books on Taylor Swift, Leona Lewis, and Selena Gomez, take a few minutes to dream. You’ll be glad you did!
You’re special. Always remember that.
