A 7-year-old boy from the USA has written his debut book in hopes it will help other children improve their vocabulary.
Kayla and Kyle: The Walking Dictionaries was dreamt up by Nicholas Buamah after being inspired by his mother’s encouragement. Danielle Buamah told BlackNews: “I developed the character of Kayla when Nicholas was younger to help teach him expanded vocabulary. After being praised by his first grade teacher for using the word ‘collaborate’ during his first week of school, I asked Nicholas what he thought about writing a book to help his friends expand their vocabularies. He thought it was a great idea, as long as one of the main characters could be a male figure, and that’s when he created Kyle.”
The young author’s father, Dominic Buamah, is obviously very proud of his son and, just like his wife, he encourages Nicholas in his choices and passions while emphasising the importance of a strong vocabulary and good communication.
The story book has already been accepted into the Library of Congress, and Nicholas’s goal is to have his book available in every elementary school library so his fun and informative story can be enjoyed all over the country.
He hopes to release the second volume in the series in the Summer of 2019.
