Kids & Pets
When you really think about it, growing up with a pet or around any animal does change your life. We don't see it as much when we are younger but everything we learn then impacts on us as we mature. I remember having a dog called Tina when I was very young and I will never forget the day she died. I was devastated. I remember asking a lot of questions and in the end, although I didn't quite understand it then, I was introduced to the 'circle of life'.
Children thrive having pets around, whether it be a hamster, a cat, dog or a goldfish.
Kids and pets have a special bond and they help each other grow. Encouraging your children to write about or research their pets gives them a deeper understanding of the breed, their special needs and their characteristics.
Interaction is important for a child's cognitive development and it sparks the desire for learning.
Please join us by encouraging your child to write about their pet and let them know that by writing they are helping to rescue and re-home animals in need.
The other bonus of course is that they will be published & famous!
You have seen the book, maybe even read some of the pages via the preview here or on either of the Amazon websites. You imagine your child's story being amongst those you read. You may even feel the buzz that comes from knowing that your child's story is about to be published and on sale for the whole world to see?!
If this is what you want then please read on:
We accept stories and poems from ALL children that are aged between 4 and 12 years of age.
Your child can continuously write stories in every new volume of Kids & Pets up until the day before their 13th Birthday.
Please note that I accept only one story per child per volume.
All stories or poems must be no more than 85 words and must fit into one paragraph.
I only accept text.
No illustrations will be accepted. I use my own animal illustrations at the top of each chapter.
I accept stories and poems from ALL countries - the more the merrier!
You agree that all proceeds of the books will be donated to animal charities.
