We all have dreams of what we want to do and who we want to become. Many of us eventually decide it is too late; we have missed our chances. But is it ever really too late to try?
Don Simpson does not think so. In his memoir, Too Old for Motor Racing, he tells the story of how he became a race car driver at the age of sixty-two. Simpson is an ordinary man from a regular family; he spent his early years living on a council estate in Liverpool, UK. He attended the school at the end of his street, leaving as soon as he could. As a young man with a young family, he could not indulge in his passion for motor racing except as a spectator; racing was simply too expensive and risky for someone with a family to take care of. Later in life, however, Simpson discovered limits are almost always imagined, not real. At the age of sixty-two, he began to race.
Although your passion may be for something other than motor racing, this memoir seeks to inspire you to go after your dreams, because it is never too late to try.
There is no better time in life to begin developing literacy and linguistic skills than as a toddler. Authors Pascal and Vickie Soman put this wisdom into practice in their new children's book, "ABC for Alex, Bash, and Company." Each page features a letter of the alphabet and a poem told by an animal whose name and species correspond with that letter.
Your child will be exposed to the alphabet and exotic animals from around the world, and also to languages from all over the world. Each page also features three words-hello, thank you, and goodbye-in twenty-six different languages, complete with pronunciation guides.
Helping your little one get off to a good start by exposing him or her to other languages is vital to improving the chances of mastering a second language later in life.
