“Nothing bad happens.” – Violet King

My 3 year old granddaughter Violet selects reading material based on that principle – “Nothing bad happens.” That’s the objective of our X Fitness children’s book series – #nothingbadhappens. Children will learn soon enough that bad things happen but for the time being, our goal is to let children see the bright side only. No dark side. We want to make sure that there’s plenty of books to read where #nothingbadhappens because bad things happening don’t belong in stories for children. Not when they don’t have the emotional capacity to understand why bad things have to happen in the first place.

It’s pretty sad when a 3 year-old already knows the distinction between bad things happening and good things happening. But the good news is that they have the smarts to choose the right stories, the ones where #nothingbadhappens.

I don’t live my life in a pink bubble but I want my grandchildren to believe that #nothingbadhappens for as long as possible because I see no redeeming value in exposing them to bad things when bad things have the capacity of messing up the minds of grown-ups. Imagine what it does to the minds of children.

“Be Fit, Don’t Quit” is just the first of a series of books where #nothingbadhappens. I just wrote the second book. It will be released soon. We guarantee one thing – #nothingbadhappens in any of the book in the Happy Book series. We’ve created a Facebook page that we hope you’ll like.

On another note, here’s a masterpiece that’s been on my workout song list long before iPODS. Epic. Has to be heard to be believed. The link is after my signature.
