Re: Read To Me Daddy
Boszenna Nowiki is embarking on a Journey from MISSISSAUGA to Ottawa on foot.
It appears these days that everyone is too busy to read books. Author, Boszenna Nowiki is going to spend the next few weeks, walking to Ottawa to remind everyone that they should set aside time to read. Her goal is to emphasize the importance of reading, particularly to children. She is a resident of Mississauga and on August 4, at 10:00 a.m., from a small Mall, near the Gas Station and 7 Eleven Store, at Derry Road and Lisgar in Mississauga she begins her first leg of her walk of over 560km to Ottawa, to see Prime Minister Harper. During this walk, she wants to raise awareness to the fact that reading to children is extremely important.
This walk is also an expression of appreciation to those who have helped the author on her 3 year journey. She had to re-establish herself when she lost her home in British Columbia, due to questionable laws and she had to re-settle in Ontario.
Her vision is to help children to read more books.
Read to me Daddy – is her motto to encourage parents (especially fathers) to read books to their children.
Boszenna Nowiki, (age 57) is the author of a series of books for children entitled "Why Some Cats are Rascals.” The series of books are adventurous stories of cats, overcoming great obstacles.
The author would like to appeal to all parents, in the digital era of computers and video games that they do not forget the important role a book plays in the life of a child.
Reading books to children and young people greatly affects their emotional development, enriches the imagination and provides a sense of respect for their colleagues. Reading stories about animals also cements a strong bond of respect and friendship between children and animals.
Today, parents are extremely busy with their everyday lives and they are pulled in many different directions and they do not have enough time to devote to reading to their kids. Therefore, Boszenna’s suggests to parents, that every day they spend 20 minutes reading to their children, or have their children read to them.
This suggestion is especially directed to fathers. As noted in research studies, Dads’ appear to devote the least time to their daughters and sons, thus the “Read to me Daddy,” motto was developed.
The role of the father in the life of every child is very essential. A father reading daily to his children helps to develop and build a positive relationship.
Boszenna Nowiki is also the voice and advocate of lonely elderly people in Canada who have problems with understanding older legislation. She can compare these provisions that have been “rascally” interpreted.
“Why some Cats are rascals” is a series of six volumes of published books and soon the author will be adding an additional three volumes to the collection. Children and adults from around the world have enjoyed reading the adventures of these amazing cats.
Each book focuses on the cats’ adventures in a specific area of the world. An enchanted forest, in the Sahara Desert, in the Wildy Wild West, during Prehistoric times, in the Antarctica, and on Cat Island. There are positive messages conveyed in each book. The reader will learn good values like friendship, compassion and love.
During the walk, Boszenna would be pleased to sign all of the six volumes of her books. The books are available on the bookstore website: www. amazon.ca
The first stretch of her walk to Ottawa, starting on August 4 leads from Mavis Rd. and Lisgar, in Mississauga to HWY 7. Every day, Boszenna plans to walk 10 - 15 km. She indicates, “I'm not a young person, I’m 57 years of age and not an avid sportswoman but the walk does not scare me. This is a mission I have chosen and feel strongly about completing.”
