Special Message of If Nellie Bly Could Do It...
The message of the book is the message
of Amazing Kids!:
YOU CAN BE AN AMAZING
It's no secret...every person has
the potential to be amazing in their own way. Sometimes we just need
a little help in finding out what our special talents are!
If you know someone who needs a little
encouragement, why not tell them what you think is special about them?
Maybe you can be the one to help them uncover their own special
talents! And please help Amazing Kids! spread the word:
"cool" to be an Amazing Kid!
