I began this project with the idea that I would go off and write a series of child-oriented short stories to be read by young children as well as adults. I started by spending my first few weeks reading books about writing children's literature. I found out that children's books are often a child's first learning material and are therefore a strongly influential form of media whose content cannot be taken lightly. During these early weeks of my project I spent some time with a four-year-old boy named Maja. Maja helped to show me how much of an impression one story can make and how much direct influence it can have on a child's perception of the world outside of his immediate environment.
