“I am an advocate for teaching children how to turn their struggle into strengths by empowering them to make appropriate choices and helping them to be the best version of themselves by incorporating thinking strategies. Childhood is the most delicate and absorbing part of life, so I decided to write this series to provide parents with an opportunity to interact with their child while teaching them some essential values of living a responsible life. To achieve this effectively, I adopted the philosophy, involve a child and they learn, and since learning is the ability to make the connections to previously learned knowledge, I decided to adopt a rhyming and playful learning pattern to engage the children mentally,” said Shay Ma, the author of the book.
Applying the significance of rhyming, and social development used in a playful learning pattern along with children of different ethnicity in the illustrations, significantly differentiated the “Pick Me Pumpkin: Perky Pumpkin Learns Patience” from being an ordinary picture book, rather, an excellent tool for developing the mental ability of the children towards understanding the ideal decision-making strategy in any life situation. While the book is written in seven languages – English, Spanish, French, German, Chinese, Japanese, and Russian – to break every language barrier and enhance effective and efficient communication.
PICK ME PUMPKIN is a series based on Shay Ma’s Emporium “I Can Think, I Can Read, and I Can Rhyme.” Pick Me Pumpkin is a holiday-themed book that can also become a read-aloud activity for families to gather precious memories.
