Dr. Nanette Crighton, author of The Christmas Spryte Encounter: Bad Behavior shares her insights on children and their interests in a gratifying interview. She opens up about how magic and make-believe can become enjoyable to children, thus she incorporated a magical theme in a piece that infuses the value of good behavior. The author unlocks the story about an unruly young girl who gets visited by a behavioral elf, on Christmas Eve and being warned on not getting any present if she continues to display a bad behavior.
Crighton highlights that parents and elders play an important role of introducing books to the younger crowd as this amplifies their interest in it, instead of exposing them to gizmos that do not necessarily allow them to explore their imagination leaving them with no possibilities of learning something new and useful.
The Christmas Spryte Encounter: Bad Behavior is a perfect treat for children. It is written in poem format that can easily be comprehended; a piece that reflects the author’s big-picture thinking and her love for poetry. She concludes the interview by leaving a piece of advice about writing: saying things in a way that one wants them said, with a hope that readers will enjoy the piece, is definitely what works best!
