Lacing a bit of fiction with a story that educates children is what I try to do in this series of books. These books relate the idea that each form of life depends upon another for its existence. "We are all in this life together" - Responsible Earth Stewardship is the theme throughout the series. Each book carries a message about Character: Friendship, Self-Esteem, Being Your Best. Many of the books are accompanied with songs and skits for the kids to be able to fully be involved with the story by reading, singing, role playing. They hear the story - feel the rhythm of the story and live the story through acting it out. Children love this approach to books.
