havent read the printed version. I believe it would help children by providing an audio version it allows usage of their imagination.
Main character. Focused on helping others get over their fears and achieve their goals.
Articulate, Animated, creative and peppy. Awesome work!
very relatable for other age appropriate kids and relevant for day to day issues. Good Conflict resolution usage.
creative solutions, bullying
I love the heart to hearts with Nia and her mom. It was also great to see her best friend being so supportive.
She has a great feel to her voice. Terrific pace, quick but not so fast kids won't understand. I love the way her voice has a youthful quality when narrating Nia and her friend.
It is a very sweet read that could help kids who are being bullied. It may not be the answer for everyone, but it is a different approach.
Perhaps. Emotions both good and bad fill the audio and bring the listener inside a young girl's heart as she, through trial and sunshine, fulfills her dream.
I liked how Nia solved her own problem with Bullying. Although she was assisted by her mother and the words of Oprah Winfrey, whom she had grown to love, Nia, herself, decided on a solution, and through the solution and subsequent result, was able to grow even stronger.
I haven't. This is my first listening experience with Hillary Hawkins. I will listen to another.
It is always difficult to stand in front of a group and speak; whether the speaking is a report, or, as in the case of Nia, an opportunity to share something with the class that is important to you. My favorite line comes at this time: "I trembled in my skirt as they poked me with their eyes." Haven't we all felt like that when standing before a group? But Nia didn't let her fear cloud her desire to share her dream.
I did struggle a bit with the tags following the dialogue. Tags such as "she said," "she asked," etc. I almost felt as if the pause between the dialogue and tag was too long.
I liked that Nia kept a journal. In the journal she recorded her thoughts, and worked through many of her trials with bullying.
