Our Review:
Cree & Scooter is a fun and exciting book for young children.  My girls are 5 and 9 and both of them loved reading along as Cree & Scooter travel all over the world learning about different countries and cultures!  As my children now have friends in other states as well as in Japan, they have begun asking more and more questions about how people all over the world live.  I love how my children can have fun learning along with Cree & Scooter as they visit new countries and make new friends. And this first book teaches them some wonderful and exciting cultural similarities and differences so close to home - in Canada!
Reading is very important to my family.  Each of my children have their own library of books and with new technology like Kindles, iPads, iPhones and such - it is so easy to read on the go now - with ebooks!  Cree & Scooter make a great on-the-go read for young children - so make sure to add it to your ereading device!  And don't forget - ebooks make SUPER gifts!
Such a cute beginning book for this up and coming children's series!

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.“
