Synopsis of Bud & Roo’s Spectacular Adventures- The Beach

30 Nov

In the first edition of our children’s adventure series, Bud & Roo’s Spectacular Adventures The Beach, Bud & Roo find a blue bucket.  But where did it come from they wonder?  They sniff their way to a gorgeous illustration of …(well, you just have to buy the book to find that one out).

The book targets little readers under 7’s.  What makes this book so special?  This book is different as it encourages independent reading.  There are so many books that my daughters bring home that are either un-interesting and don’t make sense or don’t really reach them on their level.

Bud & Roo’s Spectacular Adventures-The Beach. was inspired by one of my favourite children’s books Rosie’s Walk by Pat Hutchins.  Once I saw Suzy’s art work I knew she was meant to be the illustrator of our children series.  When I saw her illustrations she gave me the same fuzzy feeling I had when I read Rosie’s Walk.  Plus, my three-year old is IN LOVE with Rosie’s Walk.  She can recite the whole book which is simply amazing.  Simple and amazing.  It was copy written 1979 or something like that.  It is the ultimate classic.

Having teaching as my background (I have been a teacher for over 15+ years and that of creative writing, reading and Language Arts – or as most know as an English Teacher) I wanted to create a book that also tickled the critical thing a bit.  I know that at around age 7 the brain develops and critical thinking skills are soon to develop (my many years of psychology studies).  However, I wanted to challenge the young person’s mind.  I wanted little readers to question where does the blue bucket come from.  Where could it come from?

Lastly, our very own children have read the book whilst in the process of creating the first series of our children’s adventure books.  They can read most of the words and can remember many of the sounds.  It is truly inspirational.
