The Kids X-Press Difference
Every child has a story to tell, a message to convey, a picture to draw, or an experience to relate. These stories become an important tool through which children learn to express themselves and proclaim to others information about their world. The stories also help others appreciate the diverse experiences children have, laying a foundation for understanding and acceptance of these differences. We provide a quality publication for children of ALL backgrounds and abilities. This encourages children to develop the confidence and creativity needed to write.
BENEFITS TO CHILDREN
Using stories as an enabling tool, children are offered the opportunity to:
- Build self-confidence;
- Develop self-expression skills;
- Express their feelings and thoughts;
- Hone important communication skills, such as thought organization, language development, and creative thinking;
- Become more observant of their surroundings;
- Increase language and art skills through practice; and
- Foster their imagination and natural talents.
