AUTHOR GAETANO AMATO MAKES HIS DREAM BECOME A REALITY!
AVON, CT. (MMD Newswire) April 11, 2013 -- "It is my dream and my goal to explore ways in which my books can reach our children all across our great nation", said author Gaetano Amato in 2010.
Amato is an independent writer who resides in Avon, CT. He first published UPSIDE RIGHT in 2010. This year, the Torrington, CT Public Schools selected his book to be read as part of the Northwest Chamber of Commerce Read Aloud Day, 2013.
The "Read Aloud Program" was established 20 years ago as an initiative of the Northwest Chamber of Commerce and the Alcoa foundation in conjunction with the Torrington CT Public Schools. The sponsors provide funding to purchase library quality books that are selected by a group of media specialists and language arts consultants from local schools.
Amato says he feels flattered and proud to have achieved part of his goal in the Northeast part of the country where he is best known for his work with children. Today, his book is not only in libraries and schools in Connecticut, but also in the states of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, Oregon and Texas.
Amato formed the company Get Kids Moving Now! to provide a book collection for children that focuses on movement activities as a means of combating childhood obesity and enhancing children's interest in reading. His books have been translated into Spanish in order to use them as part of Family Literacy Programs in the schools, where Hispanic families and children can attend workshops to acquaint them with how to use UPSIDE RIGHT in teaching movement skills to their children.
"Perseverance Leads to Success" is Amato's theme, and this is what has happened in the publication of his writing. GET KIDS MOVING NOW! will continue to work in the best interests of our children's growth and development, both physically and mentally, and will soon be releasing a new book on nutrition for children titled "Eat this, Try That...Eating Healthy is the GAME!"
