When you think “motivational speaker” it’s not likely that you’ll picture a preschooler. But when a four-year-old’s motivational speech about reading goes viral, everybody listens. Seriously.

Master Caleb Stewart is one smart kiddo. He may only be 4, but he’s definitely wise well beyond his years. The internet-famous little boy and his Brilliant Little Leaders Facebook page are showing the world that anyone—even a preschooler—can make a difference.

So where has this mini motivational speaker spoken? Well Master Caleb has shared his message on the importance of reading with middle school teachers, Head Start pre-K teachers and many more.

If you haven’t seen Master Caleb or his sister Queen Olivia, you don’t have to score a seat at a teachers’ in-service day. The Brilliant Little Leaders YouTube channel has plenty of major motivation. In one clip, Master Caleb asks, “What motivates you to succeed?” He then answers the question (for himself) saying, “I read! That’s my superpower. Try it. Read a good book today and you can see.”

He continues with, “Open doors to new possibilities. Read a good book today and you can be anything you want to be.” before the video ends, Master Caleb also tells his viewers, “Because reading turns dreams into realities.” Now that’s some sage advice that we can all take—from a preschooler!
