Educators, why should you use Billy The Brilliant?
Here's a little something about the book and author you may not know...
Billy The Brilliant explores the hardships that each of us face at some point in our lives and restores three main values in all readers, of all ages.
Ambition: Each of us should strive to reach for the stars and dream big. Having a goal is what keeps us grounded, driven and dedicated to being the best version of ourselves.
Determination: Without determination, dreams cannot be achieved. Striving for greatness through hard work and going for what you want is an essential step in gaining the reward of achievement.
Resilience: A “speed bump” is bound to happen when on your journey at some point. Going through hardship is what makes the reward of achieving that much sweeter. Without resilience, ambition is merely a dream without motivation.
The ability to push through adversity is a true testament of character and Billy is a model individual for every reader to base his or her dreams upon; there’s a little bit of Billy in everyone. Like his writing, Timmy speaks with passion, sensitivity and quirky wisdom. Drawing on his own childhood experiences and the day-to-day stories encompassed with our youth, Timmy puts life into perspective and urges even the most cynical onlooker that magic is real and all of us can create it in our own lives.
