This book was originally written for my granddaughter Kamala. But the message is for anyone who has a dream that others may consider impossible. Kamala’s dream is to become a princess. She holds onto her dream for many years and finally shares it with an old woman in her village. The old woman tells her how to fulfill her dream. With her new direction Kamala embarks on a grand adventure to chase her dream. The message for all who read this story is not to follow you dream, but to chase it. Travel with Kamala as she embarks on her impossible quest to become a princess. This Christian children’s book is the perfect length for a bedtime story, followed by a goodnight kiss, and sweet dreams wish as you turn out the lights. Barbara attended Andrew Jackson High in Queens New York. She began performing dance with the Bernice Johnson Dancers at the age of 14. Her earliest performances started with Bernice Johnson Dance recitals and TV appearances, on Soul to Soul. Barbara attended Morgan State University where she majored in physical education and later Herbert Lehman for her Masters Degree in Education. Barbara has taught 4th grade to Community College. For 30 years she taught dance at the Borough of Manhattan Community College in New York City. Most of her career has been spent teaching and directing performances. In 1985 she started her own dance company "Barbara Solomon Dancers," where they performed in the Tri-State area at local community events. Barbara’s love and passion for dance has pursued her though out her life. She has worked and studied with some of the great names in the dance world from Alvin Ailey, Pearl Primus, Charles Moore, Dinizulu and many others. Her greatest joy is found in introducing youth to the world of dance through performance. After retirement she began to study book binding and organized her company Adzua Art Associates. From this she developed Adzua Art Books. Barbara is a first time author and hopes to continue with many more Christian children’s books.
