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.

My Review:

I found this to be a cute and informative story. The little girl Cree learns a lot while on her dream adventure with Scooter. She learns some French words, along with a lot of facts about chameleons, Canada, traveling in a plane, and using a passport. The story is fun to read. The facts are interesting and  memorable. I really enjoyed all the illustrations which suited the story very well.

I would recommend this book to anyone with children that love to learn new things. I think this would be a great book for children that have a good imagination. Sit down and read this book with your child. You both might learn some fun facts while enjoying a good book.
