NEW BOOK, “NNEKA SAYS”, USES AFRICAN CULTURE TO TEACH CHILDREN THE AUTHENTIC MEANING OF GRATITUDE!

This book promises to keep children interested, and at the end they will learn something meaningful and useful

Nashville, TN (BlackNews.com) — Precious Adesuwa, the author of the new children’s book Nneka Says, specializes in Child Development, with a mission in “Helping Your Child Grow Organically”. The Nashville native, holds a Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences from Tennessee State University, integrated with a second specialization in Family Studies. Even more, she takes part in various projects that focus on teaching children how to grow and develop in harmony.

As a member of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Precious, with over 10 years of experience in educating children, creates children’s content that leaves a dynamic impact and contributes to the literacy advancement of all children. Her experience and motivation to nurture children’s development and expose them to the opportunity to lead a healthy and organic lifestyle, inspired her to write the children’s book Nneka Says.

The book presents little Nneka who comes from an African upbringing. She wakes up and starts her day by expressing gratitude to her mother and father grateful for the life she has by their side. The title of the book is intrinsic to the theme of the story and teaches children how to say, “Thank you very much” in another language creating a multicultural learning experience.

Precious’ journey of “Helping Children Grow Organically”, doesn’t stop at this book, her creativity and desire for progressive child development and multicultural awareness, drives her to continue to create more authentic material for children.
