My 7-year-old daughter, Bea, is training for her first Kung Fu Tournament. The form she’s learning is challenging and it doesn’t help that she wants to get all the moves right the first time and she gets frustrated. She’s also a bit nervous about competing so I wanted her to have fun, relax and learn that practice, patience and persistence are important so we decided to make a little comic. I’ve always loved comic books and my daughter has really gotten into the Dog Man books by Dave Pilkey lately so that was our natural go-to.Alex Hernandez: Author/Father
Bea says she had a lot of fun making the comic and really liked seeing herself as a Kung Fu hero. She can’t wait to share it with her Sifu Ms. Yvette!
