The show aims to entertain children between 6 and 9 while simultaneously teaching the following four crucial areas of literacy that are challenging for struggling readers: 1.

Words I Wish Someone Had Saidto Me As a Kid I wrote this book of encouraging words to help young people as they make their way in the world.

e-Books from Bill Zimmerman

Every girl and boy needs to hear such words. I know I did. You see, I lost my father when I was very young and missed hearing the words that a child needs to hear from his or her dad. Growing up, I tried hard to imagine the things he would have said to guide me if he were around. Writing the letter helped me that day and I continued to write more letters in the voice of a father talking to a child. If you’re a young person reading this book, think of each page as a personal letter of caring words from me to you, like the ones an older friend or relative might say to you.
