Cree and Scooter -- November Book Tour

Cree and Scooter Hit the Slopes in British Columbia

My children and I have been given the chance again this month to bring you this wonderful book!  Cree and Scooter are a big favorite of Ally's and I know she plans to share her love for them with Cooper!  You can find our review last month on Cree and Scooter's adventure HERE.

Book Description

Cree can hardly wait to fall asleep because she knows her dreams bring exciting adventures. Cree quickly finds out that her toy chameleon, Scooter, is very special as he comes alive in her dream . With Scooter's help, Cree's dreams become exciting adventures that take her around the world to lands of different people and their customs. You can learn too! Join Cree and Scooter on their trip to British Columbia, Canada.

Cree and Scooter Hit the Slopes in British Columbia is the first book in The Adventures of Cree and Scooter, a series. It is geared toward children aged 4 to 8, and it exposes young readers to various cultures in an age appropriate manner. This unique series is fun and interactive, while promoting children's educational development. This book connects young readers with the two main characters, Cree and Scooter, as they navigate their way through many countries across the globe. Going back and forth between the spheres of reality and fantasy, the books in this series come alive when Cree dreams in her bed at night. In her dreams, Cree and Scooter embark upon many exciting adventures. The subsequent books in this series follow Cree and Scooter as they travel to different countries to experience the richness and uniqueness of many cultures of the world. In Cree and Scooter’s outrageous adventures this book showcases some ‘travel mishaps’ and humor into the storyline to engage readers. Cree and Scooter differs from traditional children’s books, as it infuses active academic learning in a fun and engaging manner. Each book in the Cree and Scooter series includes opportunities for readers to learn world geography, history, key words from different languages, and many different cultural customs.

Sweet Cheeks and Savings Review:

Ally and her fox Jetta sat on my lap while I read this book to her again.  Since our last book tour in October, Ally has been very interested in maps of the world.  I can applaud Cree and Scooter for opening her curiosity to the world!  

After I was finished reading this story to Ally, Cooper woke up from his nap, so I had a chance to read it to both children.  Cooper loved the graphics and Scooter the best!  

They travel North to British Columbia, Canada!  Along the way Scooter teaches Cree a few things about Canada.  She even learns a little French along the way!  When they meet Mr. Todd while skiing was Ally's favorite part.  Of course Mom's favorite part was when she got a charm for her bracelet!

Cree and Scooter's Creator: Tammy Sutton-Brown

   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.
   Tammy believes that exposure to various culture, languages, traditions, and values enhances the quality of life. Her passion for travel and learning about what different countries and cultures have to offer is the inspiration behind Cree and Scooter. “My vision is to implement global education at an early age through Cree and Scooter. I want kids to be able to travel around the world without leaving the comfort of their home, school, city or country, engaging their imagination and sparking their interests.”
  “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.“
