“Cree and Scooter Hit the Slopes in British Columbia (The Adventures of Cree and Scooter A Global Series),” book review by Ollamok AKA Sandra Lynn Mallo Adcock D.Ph. M.S.M.
- Learning in a fun manner.
- Geography or children see it as far off lands
- Exercising the mind or children’s imagination which leads creative ways of doing things and thinkers as adults.
- Cultures or Sociology and Psychology
- Living or ways of this
- People Interaction (Social Skills which is great for those with Special Needs like Autism and so forth)
- Music via Song and Dance
- Inspiration in trailblazing
- How to handle crisis situations.
- Compassion and responsibility.
- Emotional growth.
- Mistakes are okay and this is part of learning.
- Appreciation for living and zest for life.
- Science and Biology
- Definition Appendix foreign language listed in the back.
How about we take some direct quotes from Ms. Sutton-Brown’s own reasons for wanting to write these books. By the way I see what I can imagine is a lot of personality belonging to Ms. Sutton-Brown in Cree. Which means she is a person to be admired. Please see below for the following quotes as to what and why she wanted to do a children’s book series. She states this in a letter to parents and children on the site http://creeandscooter.com/ . She is wise not to forget both audiences.
- Aid in the development of global-minded kids, which will navigate their minds with Cree and Scooter through the crevices of each continent
- Expose kids to the things they wouldn’t normally get from standard schooling
- Stimulate kids worldly curiosity
- Take kids on global journey
- Enable kids to learn different languages, foods, cultures, history, landmarks and geography
- Promote excitement on the curious minds of kids
- Enable kids to travel the world without leaving their home, school, city, or country
- Educate without kids knowing they are learning
- Ignite a passion for kids to learn not only about their cultures but other cultures
- Provide hours of entertainment through reading, interactive website, educational toys, workbooks, fun toys, animated cartoon, DVD’s, movies, etc….”
I would say Ms. Sutton-Brown has accomplished her goals if my list is this close to hers. Any disagreement among us?
Other reviews by fellow bloggers are mentioned below.
“WNBA (Women’s National Basketball Association) veteran and two-time All Star, Tammy Sutton-Brown was born in Ontario, Canada. Being a professional basketball player has opened Tammy’s world to experience a host of different countries and cultures.
“When you read, your world opens up. I want to encourage early literacy for kids, ignite a love for travel and exploration and 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 kids. Our world has changed and is continuing to change with the people from all around the world playing and living together, as well as attending the same schools. Kids will be in good hands with Cree and Scooter.“
