How to change your child's future

So, the question is: 30 years from now, who do you want your daughter to see when she looks in the mirror? And what can you do today to make that come true?


I’m going to assume that your answer to the first question wasn’t something like: Desperate and poor. Doing menial work. In an abusive relationship.


Instead, let’s try on some other hats.


Successful (however her future self will choose to define that). Strong. Rich. Happy. In love with her life.


There is one thing that you can do today that will change the course of her life – read her stories. (And if you don’t believe me, there are many studies that confirm this. Just click here for one.)

  Make your child the hero in their own story 

But here’s the thing. Just reading her stories and creating that vocabulary and numeracy is an important base. But it’s not enough.


If you want to help your daughter create that future reflection in the mirror, then you need to give her a different mirror today.


The question is, what type of mirror?


As celebrated author Malorie Blackman recently commented in a conversation with Angie Thomas: stories are not just doors and windows...but also mirrors.


In other words, you need to give her stories in which she can see herself and identify with the lead character. She can become more like these story’s heroes by identifying with lead characters who have traits such as being brave or inventive or resourceful.


Yet – as we know - the heroes in children’s books are more likely to be boys than girls. And they’re more likely to be white than any other ethnicity.


But it doesn’t have to be this way.


At Zoowun, we have created baby’s and toddler’s story e-books where you can customize what the hero looks like to reflect your child’s reality back to her.


You can also personalize the text, so that your child truly is the hero in her own story.


So, you don’t have to leave it to chance and hope that she will have access to stories with heroes that look like her.


She doesn’t have to feel invisible. Not today or any day.


You can make it happen in 3 easy steps.


  1. Go to
  2. Select the avatar that looks most like your child by swiping through the menu (on mobile) or clicking the red arrows (on desktop).
