About the series:

Three books take Jeremiah through an array of adventures in which he assumes a different occupation in each title.  He's an inventor, a naturalist, and an archaeologist.  Few children's books combine story and educational content in such a seamless manner.  The books are filled with information about science, history, mathematics and character development.

Also, each book has its companion piece that provides related hands-on activities for children.  For example, Jeremiah's invention, the Angle Getter, is available in kit form so readers can build their own model and learn how to use it.

In Jeremiah Stokely, Naturalist, Jeremiah falls in love with a swamp and all the wetland plants and animals that live there.  A nature journal is available so that young readers can do what Jeremiah did, keep a journal just like the one John J. Audubon kept.

In Jeremiah Stokely, Archaeologist, Rita who is a Native American and who operated an animal rehabilitation center, teaches Jeremiah and his friends about her Miami culture and how to make pottery using traditional Native American techniques.  A kit is available that contains clay, tools and instructions.

This is why we say, "After the story, the adventure continues."

About the themes:

In each book, the conflict is driven by a moral dilemma.  Therefore, the resolution must reflect a moral solution.  The major themes include integrity, steadfastness, perseverance, caring, non-violent conflict resolution, an appreciation for cultural difference and thoughtful problem solving.

Expert characters that represent different aspects of our society.  You will find African Americans, native Americans, and Hispanic.  There are younger and older people, rich and poor people, good and not so good people all woven into exciting stories.

It is for these reasons that Jeremiah Stokely is finding his way into more and more schools, libraries, and home schooling situations.

In addition, lesson plans for teachers are available free of charge.  Instruction on how to conduct hands-on workshops is also available.
