Change My World Now – what powerful words for children to hear! Gina Otto, author of Cassandra’s Angel and children’s advocate is on a mission to empower children to make a difference.
This past weekend, my savvy ladies and I went to see the launch of Cassandra’s Angel at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum. The message was loud and clear to my oldest. Through upbeat music, this musical relates to children. Oldest Savvy knew that the other children were being mean and that Cassandra was misunderstood. She told me that Cassandra had to believe in herself.
How true! As a mom to three girls, I appreciated the powerful message learned. Be yourself, be unique, and also, respect others. We read the book together when we got home and my oldest brought it to school to share with friends.
Here is some information learned about Gina Ottto and her children’s book, Cassandra’s Angel.
Gina Otto’s children’s book Cassandra’s Angel (Sterling Children’s Books/October 4, 2011), is launching with a national bus tour designed to reach and inspire children in local communities across the country. In an era where children suffer from low self-esteem and peer pressure, Gina will be visiting schools and participating in community events as part of her global movement to help children of all ages cultivate a sense of self-reliance, confidence and self-acceptance. Cassandra’s Angel was written with the intention of igniting and empowering today’s youth. Via this bus tour, the story comes vividly to life for large audiences across the country so that they can experience firsthand the tale’s underlying message and engage in a national dialogue about tolerance, compassion, and respect.
