Auntie Fran writes children’s books that deal with the true stories of real life children. Children are more resilient than we give them credit for and in their own way they can reduce stress without even realizing it. We can learn so much just by listening to the ideas that children perceive and the explanations they give when confronted with questions like “Why? How? or even What?”
Readers as well as those being read to, will gain a knowledge of how innocently admirable, children are. They can solve the most complex of problems by their own innocent solutions and truly believe that their solution worked. We can certainly learn by the antics of children and by their non judgmental attitudes.
The characters in my books are children we have seen and hopefully have had some type of interaction with. These children express emotions, compassion, and uninhibited love. I created them because I feel we WERE them at a certain time in our lives however, we sometimes forget just how beautiful life truly is when it is embraced through minds and eyes of children.
