I Love My Hoodie / Amo A Mi Hoodie
I Love My Hoodie, the first in the series is written in both English and Spanglish. The Spanglish version, which was translated by Rosie Vigiani, is AMO A MI HOODIE. It is a story that all children between five and ten years old should read as it teaches them the importance of good behavior in a shopping environment and how that behavior can be rewarded. You never know how your behavior could affect you, your parents or even those around you. This story enables children to see the importance of Obedience which is one of the morals of this story.
Hope Syndreamz thought this was a good a time to bring I Love My Hoodie and Amo a Mi Hoodie to the forefront. With so much going on about hoodies, and crime…she thought the “hoodie” was getting a bad rep, not to mention the young people donning such attire.
She wanted the young people to take note of this popular style of clothing that does not cause possible demise, but instead acts as an item of protective clothing that can bring a smile to a person’s face, especially when it is received as a gift from someone.
I’m Proud of My Dad
This story has a two-fold mission. It was written as a children’s story for every child in the world as well as a subliminal message written for the parents in the form of a children’s story. As they read the story to their children, my hope is that it awakens their minds and hearts to a desire drifting around in the hearts and minds of their children. I am hoping it prompts their children to ask the question and for them to realize the necessity to respond.
A wonderful heartfelt story about Amir…a little boy desperately seeking the answer to one question. What does Daddie do for a living? Amir watches his father leave the house everyday, and has no idea where he goes, or what he does all day while he’s out in the streets. His father is often gone, and so instead of father son time…Amir has to play alone.
Every time Amir asks his father about coming to school for show and tell, he finds a reason or a way to back out of it, in order to keep his secret hidden. I bet you want to know what he does for a living as well? Hmmm?
Nevertheless, Amir spends much of his time day and night dreaming about what he does for a living. He imagines his father absorbed in all types of roles and occupations. But, Daddie finally tells him what he does for a living. I guess you’ll just have to read it to find out what he does for a living. The primary moral of this story is Humility replacing Pride.
The Little Wire Hanger in the Closet
The Little Wire Hanger in the Closet takes you on a historic journey, teaching the children a little about how wire hangers evolved. The storyline also shines a spotlight on the little scrawny wire hanger named Ian who, to the rest, is less pleasing to the eye than all of those around him. Although Ian is lonely, and at times afraid in his dark little home, the sun begins to shine through. But the only way for him to feel the warmth of acceptance, respect, freedom and peace of mind depends solely upon his little wire shoulders.
He must physically make a move, and so when the opportunity arises, he musters up enough courage and makes that move. Ian learns that it’s okay to stand up and believe in his self even though the others talk about him, make fun of him and bully him. They believe he is useless, worthless, and weak while they are obviously much stronger, bigger, and better than him.
The Little Wire Hanger in the Closet is full of great examples that will helps every parent, grandparent, or teacher explain the meanness of bullying and show children the benefits of believing in their own self-worth. There are several morals to this story, but the main morals of this story are self-esteem, and Anti-Bullying.
