Children Who Pursue Their Passions by Todd Rutherford

One of the biggest fears kids and adults face in life is the fear of not being accepted for who they are or of failing. So often we avoid doing the things we love in fear that people will put us down or not accept us for who we are. When a fear likes this takes hold of children, sometimes just talking to them isn’t enough to help them overcome their fears.

It is this communication barrier between parents and children that led author, Don M. Winn, to create the book, Chipper the Clown . Mr. Winn uses colorful illustrations, rhymes, a compelling storyline, and interactive questions at the end of the stories for parents and children. With this book he hopes parents and teachers will be able to effectively teach kids to always pursue their passions in life, no matter how hard it may be, and when times get tough, don’t just give up.
“Several of my books deal with real life situations that most of us have faced from a young age,” says 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 always pursuing passions; he has also written children’s books about other popular issues children face such as succeeding despite learning problems, 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 to children 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.” Chipper the Clown will have your children reaching to overcome their fears and enjoying lives full of success.
