A few weeks ago, I filmed the official We Know What Love Is Fun Trailer. With the book's target market being adolescents/ pre-teens/ young adults, I thought it should star my 12 year old nephew/ actor Shaqai White and his childhood friend, Calli. I love them both and was so happy with the trailer just being them having fun. SIMPLE! Their children and the smiles on their faces said more than I could have said.
Whilst promoting the release of the trailer on the Kayisha Online YouTube channel, I posted a photo on the Zurie and Zaria and Kayisha Online Instagram accounts, and looking at the photo made me smile. It captured a very special moment in my life, and one that I worked hard for. I posted the photo above of my nephew reading the book, and here are the captions that followed.
"I loved seeing my nephew @shaqaiwhitetalent reading my new book, Mum And Dad, We Know What Love Is. For one, its dedicated to him and two, he contributed a lil something something which makes it even more special. Follow @zurieandzaria for regular updates and get your copy on Amazon, Kindle or Kayisha Online. KO ⭐❤⭐"
"A quick shot from the newly released We Know What Love Is Fun Trailer for the book that's all about us. Mum And Dad, We Know What Love Is by Kayisha Thomas @kayishaonline is OUT NOW. Watch the video and treat your son, daughter or yourself to a new book. Oh and get a t-shirt to go with it. VIDEO LINK IN BIO!"
The love of books and reading is so important, so it felt marvellous to see my nephew so engrossed in my first children's book. It felt tremendous to see my nephew read a book that I've dedicated to him, simply because of my love for him, my love for reading and our new found love for reading books together.
In 2018, we started an aunty-nephew book club and its truly a blessing. Now, my suggestion that follows is not just because the book is mine, its because I know it has the power to spark the love of reading in our children. I suggest you get a copy for yourself, and one for your son or daughter. The characters are boy, girl twins so both genders can relate. Then I'd like you to take a selfie with the book and send it to me so I can smile like a cheshire cat. Get your copy on Amazaon, Kindle or the books page of this website. Thank you in advance for helping me spread love. My mission is not impossible! #MissionNotImpossible
Check out the trailer, its innocent, natural, unproduced and spontaneous.
I'm pleased to say that He knows what love is and look, he made it to the video thumbnail as well.
