A picture book for kids ages 3 to 7, the story of Apollo is important to young people who are forming communication, team work and leadership skills as they learn, through the story of Apollo, about the power of sharing ideas and the tools that can result in peaceful, non-violent resolution of conflict and even bullying. These are important skills for kids of all ages.
As bullying in schools and conflict in the world often seems pervasive, kids need stories that include role models, ideas and tools to help diffuse conflict in their daily lives. Apollo the Misguided Missile is beautifully illustrated by talented artist Michelle Rich Williams.
"What a great book! The storyline, the cadence, the illustrations by Michelle Rich Williams and their eye catching watercolor, all carry you to the end with excitement. Several angles can be approached for use in multiple readings. It's great when a story can lead us in fresh directions with each encounter. The Boars with their harsh, mean plots, the missile himself having to choose what is right, the unreachable people behind the big wall, grace and sacrifice willing to take a risk ... there's so much to consider. This is a small story packed with BIG characters. A definite quality read." Darleen Wohlfeil, Story Monsters Ink Magazine
