Seven-Year-Old Author to Introduce Debut Book at Barnes & Noble Book Signing
– The Walking Dictionaries Series Aims to Expand Children’s Vocabularies –
SNELLVILLE, Ga., December 11, 2018 – Child author Nicholas Buamah will make his first public appearance at a book signing at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 15, at the Snellville, Ga. Barnes & Noble to debut “Kayla & Kyle The Walking Dictionaries: Election Day.” The 7-year-old budding author and Honor Roll student will introduce his first book, written to help children expand their vocabulary through the experiences and adventures of characters Kayla and Kyle.
“Nicholas is your typical charismatic second grader who loves to hang out with friends, play chess, tennis and basketball and cheer on his favorite team, the Golden State Warriors,” said his mother, Danielle. “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.”
In his debut book, Nicholas introduces twins Kayla and Kyle as they compete against each other to become their school’s next class President. Before votes are cast, they must first have a class debate to demonstrate that they are worthy candidates. Nicholas’s father, Dominic Buamah, MBA, MA, says he is very proud of his son and encourages him to explore different disciplines to satisfy his curiosity with the hope it helps him decide what he wants to be in the future. Even though at the moment he’s adamant that he wants to become a mechanical engineer when he grows up, his parents have emphasized that vocabulary and communication are key ingredients to future success and relationships. Nicholas has embraced the concept quite well.
Already accepted into the Library of Congress, Nicholas’ ultimate goal is to have his book available in every elementary school library across the country in an effort to help children expand their vocabularies nationwide. Copies for school libraries can be purchased through Barnes & Nobles, Amazon or directly through www.MotherHubbard.us. “Kayla & Kyle The Walking Dictionaries: Election Day” is the first volume in The Walking Dictionaries series. Nicholas hopes to release Volume 2, which already has a working title, by Summer 2019.
