On YNF Entertainment Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, first time children’s book author Shanikqua Freeman Encourages Readers has released an inspirational new book, Don’t Give Up When Faced With Obstacles!
Don’t Give In!
Shanikqua Freeman, a native of San Diego, wrote Don’t Give In! about a group of adventurous, seafaring grade schoolers who embark on a journey and come across the unexpected: They become stranded on a ship and must figure out how to get to safety! The book, set in a post-lockdown, pandemic environment, addresses the core of human experience and serves as a resounding reminder that anything is possible with perseverance and resilience.
Don’t Give In is a conversation starter that builds confidence, self-esteem, and awareness while preparing young readers for life’s turbulences. Freeman explained that she wished she had a book like this, as a child, that echoed ‘when the going gets tough (and it will), just keep going! It features multiracial characters and a theme of perseverance and resilience that transcends age, gender, socioeconomic status, and yes, race. For Freeman, it’s more than a book, it’s a mantra! Even she has to remind herself, don’t quit, don’t give in, when her fortitude is challenged.
This 32-page, fully illustrated book is for children aged 4 to 8. The hardcover, paperback, and electronic formats are all available for purchase in English and Spanish.
