Meet Vicky Parkinson, the Author Educating Young Kids
Vicky Parkinson is an author from Hertfordshire, England who has created a set of children's books with the aim of educating kids with a series of fun, accessible and easy to follow stories where children can learn fundamental aspects of health and Well-being in an easy to follow, friendly format.
The set of books, entitled Will and Cher's Wellness Journey (published by Healthy Habits for Children Publishing, a new publisher that focuses solely on printing health books for kids) aims to entertain and capture the young reader's imagination whilst teaching the value of well-being. From recycling to healthy eating, the books see the characters (based on Vicky's son and dog) go on a journey to find out more about important topics.
“If we can educate children to be aware of their Mental Health and Well-being early on, how much better will our society be in years to come?”
The author is a well-being coach and mental health advocate, who has always understood the importance of mental and physical health as she had been on a tough journey herself.
Victoria grew up in Sidmouth (Devon), which she feels helped to grow her creativity and love for the countryside and animals.
As well as her idols, Ricky Gervais & JK Rowling, Vicky also admires the words of young activist Greta Thunberg: “Society is failing us as Greta Thunberg says. I feel exactly the same and our children need to learn how to be healthy and care for their environment at a young age so that it becomes a habit.”
