A GUYANESE writer is set to launch several books on the Amazon site on December 15, 2020. The author of the books titled “Learning is Fun, Each one Teach one,” Alesia Caesar, is using her talent for writing to help children learn during this period. She told the Pepperpot Magazine that she came up with the idea to launch the educational books following the COVID-19 pandemic. She said she is a mother of two children and has since the pandemic hit, having access to materials became more important. “When the pandemic began and I noticed that children all around the world were out of school and without materials and so on, I started thinking of what can be done. I know there are books for children, but I wanted to use my own talent and draft something that smaller children can use to not just learn from, but also to have fun,” Caesar said.
She further told the Pepperpot Magazine that while she is a cosmetologist professionally she has always had a love for writing, adding that she has already written and published over four other books that are aimed at an adult audience. “I first started with these because I wanted to share my experience with women across the world who have suffered from depression, abuse, neglect, rejection etc…Sometimes we tell ourselves that we are alone, but we need to find that strength from with us to overcome and share our stories for there are many women out there being abused and are not speak out; that’s my first book HIDDEN SCARS will be out early next year,” said Caesar. She added that having the idea for the books was simple, and getting her concepts together, she stated that she did have some sleepless nights trying to craft the perfect concepts and how she could make them easily understandable by the children. Further, she stated that the books will be launched in both an electronic copy and a hardcopy, to allow persons to have access to the books.
“We have done both an electronic copy of the book and a physical copy, so that we ensure that children from all over can have access to the book. The electronic copy can be purchased from Amazon from the books launch date and the physical copy can be purchased from my business that I will be launching in December in Tuschen, West Coast of Demerara. I am a born Guyanese, I love my country and I think as a single mother it will be a great place, to begin with my place of birth,” Caesar said The books will feature simple Mathematical equations that children ages 5-7 would be able to be sold. Additionally, simple phonics and reading exercises will be featured heavily in one of the books. When asked one piece of advice she could give to other persons, she stated that she would advise them to “Tell your story, if you have a gift or a talent that you’re blessed with and you can use it to bless or educate someone else to share it. It could be more impactful than you think.”
