Cree and Scooter hit the Slopes in British Columbia - Book Tour & Review

#Sponsored By +Cree and Scooter 
Welcome to the
Cree and Scooter Book Tour

– Tammy Sutton-Brown -

Do your children enjoy learning about new places and going on exciting adventures?
If you said yes, then your little ones are sure to love Cree & Scooter! Cree is a little girl who receives a new stuffed toy, a blue chameleon, from her big brother Omar. Scooter, the stuffed chameleon, is a very special lizard... When Cree goes to sleep, Scooter comes to life and takes her on amazing adventures throughout her dreams, all while teaching Cree about lots of interesting things including new languages and food!

Tammy Sutton-Brown is a WNBA veteran and a two-time All Star, as well as being the author and creator of Cree and Scooter. She was born in Ontario, Canada and has traveled to many different countries during her career as professional Basketball player. Being exposed to all of the different languages, cultures and traditions has sparked a passion for traveling and learning about what other countries has to offer. This passion was her inspiration behind Cree and Scooter. 

From the words of Tammy:
"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.“

I recently got the opportunity to read the new children's book, 'Cree and Scooter Hit the slopes in British Columbia' through the Cree and Scooter Parental Advisory Panel* with my daughters and it was a big hit. They loved how Scooter came alive in Cree's dreams and laughed at the way I tried to pronounced the new language that I myself was learning along with my girls. "Oui" (which is "Yes" in French) was their favorite new word and they said it with me every time it came up in the story. I loved having the chance to travel to a new place while sitting on the bed, cuddled up to my giggling girls(Who couldn't quite stop themselves from repeating "Oui" over and over). The book includes maps that gave me the chance to show Loran and Jade where Cree and Scooter was traveling to and teach them the differences in how other people live. It amazed me at how excited they were to learn. Loran even read the story along with me, which made me smile. The story is easy to read and understand which is wonderful when you have young kids who are just learning to read by themselves. There are also alot of perks to introducing your children to Cree and Scooter, such as:

  • Aid in the development of global-minded kids, which will guide their minds with Cree and Scooter through the crevices of each and every continent.
  • Expose kids to the things that they won't necessarily learn during school.
  • Stimulate your child's worldly curiosity
  • Take kids on an exciting global journey
  • Enable them to learn about different languages, foods, cultures, history, landmarks as well as geography.
  • Give kids the opportunity to travel the world without the cost or struggle of a world vacation.
  • Teach kids new things without their knowledge, they'll just be having fun.
  • Spark a passion for kids to learn not only about their cultures but other cultures as well.
I can't think of a better way to spend my night then reading and learning about new lands with my girls. Opening their minds to the many possibilities that they never knew existed before we discovered Cree and Scooter! I truly believe that all kids can benefit from the adventures and education that can be gained from opening up a Cree and Scooter book. Imagination is a wonderful perk of childhood and the minds of children can do amazing things when they learn something new. You never know how much your child will learn and enjoy geography unless you give them the opportunity. Cree and Scooter is that opportunity.
