Do you have what it takes to write a children's book? Our guest this week is author Ylleya Fields, creator of three books from the Princess Cupcake Jones series. Cupcake Jones is a modern day princess, who like many girls, loves her tutu and playing with her toys. Each book tells its own unique story, while at the same time, teaching children valuable lessons that parents will appreciate, all in a gentle, rhyming cadence that children will enjoy. The first book teaches the importance of tiding up, the second teaches the importance of going to school, and the newest book teaches the importance of creating memories and not rushing through life.
Ylleya Fields has three daughters and a son. While looking for books to read to her eldest daughter (when she was 2), Ylleya was struck by the limited number of titles featuring African American characters. Blending both of her daughter's images and personalities together, the Cupcake Jones series was created, with more additions to add to the series.
Get your questions ready and tune in - an inspiring show on motivating and teaching children positive images about culture, education, role models and the importance of self-esteem.
