Mary Bea and Strawberries all the way home
Mary Bea and Strawberries all the way home is the first in a series of children’s books designed for 5-8 year olds. The series is about equipping children with fundamental life-skills to hold them in good stead as they navigate the wondrous and complicated journey of growing up. The key to each of Mary Bea’s books is the scope for children to become immersed in the simple joy of story, while also providing opportunity for Thinking and Talking Time. Thinking and Talking Time is encouraged for the child, and their parent, grandparent, teacher or therapist to engage in together, to creatively explore ideas about healthy eating, emotional literacy, and social skills. At the beginning and the end however, Mary Bea is about FUN. May you and yours enjoy the journey!
Tamara Hogan is privileged to work with children and young people in her every day work. In her spare time she loves to write, and takes great joy in practicing some of the life- skills she explores as themes in her books, including mindfulness, healthful and aware food preparation and eating, body movement, and meditation. She is rather fond of Mary Bea, and hopes Mary Bea is able to teach her children readers, earlier rather then later, some tangible life-tools to support and buoy their journey into balanced, life-participating adults.
