My passion for travel and learning about what different countries and cultures have to offer has broadened my perspective on life. I have drawn upon my own international travel experiences to create a children’s book series that focuses on travel adventure. My personal motivation for writing this series is to encourage early literacy and have children engaged in what they are reading. I present to you “The Adventures of Cree and Scooter.”

In addition to encouraging early literacy, I also want to ignite a love for travel and exploration. I want to form an appreciation for the world we live in, its languages, cultures and history. It is my belief that global exposure will enhance the lives of others beginning with our youth. My vision is to implement global education to our youth at an early age through the release of my children’s series: The Adventures of Cree and Scooter. I have weaved a number of educational fact/elements into the story in a fun and exciting way so that the reader hardly realizes they are learning. Then after they read they can work in the activity zone section at the back of the book, 14 pages of activities for the kids making this book completely different from all other children’s books. I want kids to be able to travel around the world without leaving the comfort of their living room, engaging their imagination and sparking their interest. The first book in the series begins on the continent of North America, in the country of Canada: Cree and Scooter Hit the Slopes in British Columbia.

This is such a fun book that really helps you learn a lot! I enjoyed reading this adventure with my daughters, and look forward to Cree and Scooter’s next adventure!
