One of the messages of Hancock stories is that of persistence. With imagination and persistence added together, the great things happen. Thomas Edison imagined inventing a light bulb, and then he did. Of course, it took thousands of trials, experiments, or what some would call failure, to make it happen. Failure is like an opposite to persistence. Failure is giving up, quitting, not trying anymore, etc. Persistence is to keep going and trying, until it happens. Persistence is always required.
I believe Imagination and persistence will get me, and anyone, where they want to go. I am excited about Hancock Stories. Kids love them!
