Books are a valuable resource for learning new concepts, languages, and lessons, particularly for children. They’re interactive mediums that broaden children’s consciousness and develop an understanding of different principles. Seeing a character live through the same experiences as themselves instills relatability, empathy, concentration, and patience. Reading together with parents also helps to strengthen a parent-children relationship.
As Bruno Bettelheim, a child psychologist from the 20th century, explains, “A good book helps a child find the meaning of life. It stimulates their imagination and intellect, enhancing their emotional intelligence. Books are attuned to the anxiety and aspirations of the young ones. It must recognize their difficulties and suggest a solution for them simultaneously.”
It’s not only a combination of quirky characters and attractive images that captures the children’s attention, but the carefully woven stories designed to enhance learning. The beauty of children’s literature lies in its simplicity and artistic nature, a quick and easy way to convey core values. For example, instead of asking a child to read a scientific dissertation on healthy foods, a story will be easier to develop the concept.
Meet Susie and Johnny Grilled Cheese is also one such inclusive read. Erin Dullaghan Jones was inspired to write this book by her twin girls and son. This multi-part book series is about two grilled cheese sandwich best friends. A tale of their school life and after-school activities that begin with clues from their treehouse. It vividly describes the savory scenery of Tomato Soup Elementary as they embark on various adventures. Meet Susie and Johnny Grilled Cheese is a collection of three books taking children on an exciting journey. The series will consist of 12 volumes, and volume 5 is expected to release this Fall.
The motivation behind Erin’s storytelling was her profoundness for creativity and the need for a book that induces value in the reader. She also wanted to create a bonding tool for working parents to spend quality time with their young ones.
Erin Dullaghan Jones breathes creativity into her books, teaching children about the gift of friendship, hard work, and academic excellence.
