Prolific author, Jackie Phamotse, 31, is no stranger to controversy and addressing taboo topics head on. Whether exposing the dirty dealings of the business world, issues of witchcraft or sexual misconduct, she is at the forefront of story telling.
But this time around she has placed the controversy on the back seat and has put together a series of children’s books titled Lima to help tackle issues that affect toddlers in our society.
“My childhood dream has finally come true. I love kids with all of my heart and I struggled to get books that truly helped the kids in my life get over certain challenges,” she shared on social media.
Liwa is a children’s book series inspired by Jackies Goddaughter.
“She is an animated loving human being. This book series will inspire great educational conversations between parents and kids. The books will address the following topics.”
“Somethings are certain and after the great success of The Bare series, our company has created something so magical and historical. It is my absolute honour to introduce the story of a little girl called Liwa.
The books tell the story of a little girl who grows to be strong despite the harsh and cruel circumstances.
“You will see her go through her little life challenges and with the help of her friends and family she will overcome what most little girls struggle with in this broken society. “
The books are colourful and easy to read. They target age group is five to nive year old boys and girls.
Some of the topics Jackie covers in the book are: inappropriate gestures from adults, Food disorders in kids, overcoming anxiety and depression ; How to help kids overcome the loss of a loved one.
“After years of search and working with orphans these topics came out the most and it’s something that our society needs. I hope you are equally excited to welcome Liwa into your homes and schools.”
The books will be available for orders in April and the release will be in Spring.
Jackie has also included an adult version of Liwa, addressing female killers.
“What happens when a child becomes a serial killer? Why do women kill! The increase of female murders in our country is horrific! I went under cover to find a story that will shock and move you!” she wrote on social media.
“When Giving Birth Leads to Psychosis, Then to Infanticide, Mothers suffering from postpartum psychosis sometimes hurt or kill their children, but the law isn’t sure how to separate illness from intent. This book will unpack the depths of women who kill! Postpartum psychosis is a mood episode with psychotic features such as paranoid thoughts, auditory hallucinations, or disorganized thinking,” she says.
All the books will be available in Spring 2021.
