PJ's Backyard Adventures

Imagine the light in a child's eyes. There is so much potential in every child around the world.

The potential of every child is my reason for publishing a new book series for children entitled PJ's Backyard Adventures.

PJ, the main character, is the essence of every

child: curious

and full of wonder. Through creative play outside, PJ has magical adventures in his backyard that take him to places around the world. Get to know PJ in Book #1, PJ's Backyard Adventures: Who is PJ?.

Subscribe to my blog to receive notice the day the book is available not only in the U.S., but also Australia, Brazil, Canada, Europe, the U.K., and New Zealand.

The initial feedback from testing with kids, parents, and teachers has been fantastic:

"Fun learning tool; kids love interacting with PJ!"

- Jessica Starzyk, 3rd grade teacher and mom of four

"I think it's a great message for all children - get outside and play." - Dawn Gluskin, Author, Type-A Zen and mom of two girls ages 2 and 6

"Read it again!" - Jonah, age 4

"This is a great book and I love how it encourages kids to use their imagination!"

- Kristi Casey, reading teacher

"I'd definitely recommend this to other homeschool families."

- Amy Willis, mom of two kids ages 4 (boy) and 6 (girl)
