Jack Ralph Releases New Picture Book, A KID'S WORLD
People do not look, act and think alike, nor do they read and talk alike. It takes almost a magician to be able to communicate with everyone while treating them all as though they were all the same. Many teachers have discovered that stimulating every child's thinking process and helping them to find the truth in their reality can be very difficult, which is where author J.B. Ralph's new picture book enters. It gives children and adults a fun-filled shared learning experience that will take them inside "A Kid's World."
Ralph's book is a vehicle of unrelated little stories, vignettes and observations that portray a child's awe, dream-like wonder and simple descriptions of the world and its inhabitants. These descriptions dovetail with the author's mission to entertain, to educate, and to attract and stimulate his young audience's interest in examining dreams, fantasies and other influences in their lives. The author calls it the "interesting process of gaining maturity and sophistication."
A child can certainly gain a message different than that on the mind of the author. It is a type of teaching technique through reverse psychology, one that utilizes a child's connecting to reality while he or she still is unfamiliar with many things. It is a purpose wonderfully circumscribed by this provocative juvenile reading experience.
By portraying "A Kid's World", Ralph hopes that even the youngest child will be stimulated to be thinking, evaluating, and might even be saying, "That's not me. I don't have to believe that, and I would never say or do that. I'm not a child anymore." Through this, Ralph aims to help them take a real step on the road to maturity, facilitating their personal growth and development through shared experiences with their parents, family members and teachers.
