My First Travel Book Blog Tour
I loved writing my children’s books which give in site and information of value. The wonders of the earth and world amazed me and coming from Zimbabwe, Africa, I wanted to teach and educate the less fortunate and fortunate what the schools do not teach – the History and Geography about the world and the earth. They are not fortunate enough to travel to experience and to see these wonders. In this way they are able to learn, read and see the actual famous sites from their homes. In the rural areas of Africa the children do not get the opportunities that first world countries do. They yearn and hunger for books to read under the trees. These children travel on foot walking long distances to get to their schools, they sometimes have no school buildings to go into, they learn in their homes and under the trees in the vast plains. I would like my charitable instincts to reach the children worldwide. Parents teach your little children well, read to them and teach them on your laps, they love to learn and are always curious and fascinated. “Reading is Knowledge”
Captain Frankie what made and inspired you go into flying and becoming a pilot, flying over these wonders?
I loved flying model airplanes from a young child and fascinated with the world around us. I wanted to show the children of the world what a wonderful world we have around us and the natural creations by man and all the natural creations that were made in a natural way. Our earth is a wonder! Look at all the lovely natural sites like, Victoria Falls, Niagara Falls, The Northern Lights, Grand Canyon, The Great Barrier Reef, The Volcanoes, Mount Everest, The Serengeti – (where all the African wild animals roam freely) and more.
Is that not a wonderful world that we live in!
Now children you can see them and learn about these creations from the comfort of your own homes. As I fly you over these Wonders you can view them from high above and learn so much. One day you might have the opportunity to visit these wonderous inspirational sites yourselves and see them in real life.
One day too you can have your dream come true and become a pilot just like I was inspired to fly the skies, to discover the horizons and visit these amazing sites.
What inspired you start writing these children’s book series “My First Travel Books” ?
I started writing these children’s books when I relocated from Zimbabwe, Africa to the USA. I found that children and adults did not know much of the world beyond them. They questioned and wanted to know more about Africa where I lived with my family all my life and in general the world beyond their borders. Not many people and children get the opportunity to visit and travel abroad. My travels have taken me to see many beautiful places and countries in our wonderful world.
Historical Wonders created by man is a wonder of its own!
Natural creations created over millions of years are amazing to see and discover!
I wanted to educate the children and give them the opportunity to visit our world by writing and illustrating inspirational places and sites. Teaching them to take care of our earth and to preserve our environment is very important, especially our wild life that is being poached today and might become extinct.
Our son, Frankie who is “Captain Frankie” in our “My First Travel Book” series took up his loved career as a pilot, his DREAM come true. He was given this wonderful opportunity to teach and educate the children of the world to become pilots, discover and fly the deep blue skies and fling into the beautiful colorful horizons high up above into the skies, just like he loves doing now.
One day they too can also be inspired to discover and take up their careers making their dreams come true.
