Niko Moon Wants You to Have A "Good Time" This Year At School Even With All the New Challenges


Up and coming country artist, Niko Moon, knows how difficult this school year can be with all the new challenges and stressors, but he still wants us all to embrace the changes and have a "Good Time," because keeping a positive attitude is one of the best ways to combat a difficult situation, so he sat down with us to read a classic children's book.

Moon chose one of his favorites, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, a story about a mischievous little rabbit whose disobedience leads to trouble. BUT the tale is also filled with adventure, heart, and the moral lesson that all actions have consequences. The book has become one of the best-selling children's books ever because kids love not only the story, but also the beautiful watercolor pictures included within. Parents and teachers also enjoy the story because while using some cute animals, it teaches a very valuable lesson.

Even with all the new changes coming to the school year, it is still important to give students a sense of normalcy, like reading classic books together. Reading together as a family can be one of the most powerful things for a child's intellectual and character development.
