No one can deny the power of the imagination in a child. But combine a child’s imagination with the foundation of learning-and the possibilities are endless. However, oftentimes children do not have the knowledge to fully comprehend the importance of learning to make the things they imagine become a reality. Parents can convey to their children over and over the importance of learning to make their dreams come true, but sometimes a little reinforcement from an outside source goes a long way.
This is why author, Don M. Winn, created the book, The Incredible Martin O’Shea. Mr. Winn incorporates an interactive element in each of his books by including discussion questions for parents and teachers to ask children and students. He combines these interactive questions with engaging rhymes, creative storylines, and colorful illustrations in order to get important messages across. Parents and teachers will appreciate seeing these lessons come alive.
“Several of my books deal with real life situations that most of us have faced from a young age,” said Mr. Winn. “My hope is that they will really help parents to make even one more connection with their kids through reading the books together, because life is so fast-paced and can be very difficult. Maybe one of my stories will make it easier for them to help their children by really opening up discussions between them and helping them to increase the loving bond that they already have.”
Mr. Winn did not stop at just writing about the importance of using the imagination in learning. He has also written children’s books about other popular issues children face such as never giving up or being afraid of failure, succeeding despite a learning problem, resisting negative peer pressure, appreciating the differences in other people and themselves, urging kids to pay attention in school, and more.
Creator and author of the Cardboard Box Adventures book series, Don M. Winn struggled with dyslexia, family turmoil, and constant uprooting from place to place and school to school as a child. As a result, he learned many valuable lessons that are reflected in the person he is today. It is these lessons that inspired him to create children’s books that teach valuable life lessons by encouraging the use of imagination and facilitating interaction with parents and teachers.
Some of Mr. Winn’s favorite memories from childhood involve time spent living out imaginary adventures inside a simple cardboard box; thus the name of his storyline “Cardboard Box Adventures.” The Incredible Martin O’Shea will spark the imaginations of children and adults with its creative storyline and vivid illustrations-motivating readers everywhere to fulfill their dreams.
