Do you dream of raising a bilingual or multilingual child? My practical books on this theme have helped empower the joyful success of families around the world and could help you achieve the same dream for your family. Along with these books on child bilingualism, I’ve published language learning resources, picture books and activity books, and an award-winning novel, a humorous, action-packed adventure in the spirit of Roald Dahl that’s great fun for both children and adults. I hope my books bring value to you and your family. If so, I’d be very grateful if you’d share them with others through social media, word-of-mouth, and reviews at Amazon and Goodreads.

Bearded Dragon Daydreams Coloring Book

A fun-filled coloring book for all ages, Bearded Dragon Daydreams finally answers the profound question that has puzzled the world for centuries:

What are bearded dragons thinking when they’re staring into space?

In this delightful book you’ll find 30 illustrations that show what these thoughtful creatures are daydreaming about when sitting quietly and gazing off into the distance. In addition, there are two “challenge pages” for drawing your own bearded dragon daydreams.

Each coloring page is single-sided, with the back intentionally left blank, so they can be colored more cleanly and even removed from the book for display, if desired.

Along with coloring and drawing fun, this book can be used in various ways to promote language development in children. It includes a page of useful ideas to help parents make the most of the book as a productive language tool with their kids.

Available at booksellers, worldwide, in paperback.

Cat Dreams Coloring Book

Everyone knows that cats sleep a lot. On average, they sleep 15 hours a day. And most people know that cats also dream during their sleep. So that’s a lot of dreaming, isn’t it?

But what no one knew—until now—is the answer to this mysterious question:

Just what are cats dreaming about?

In Cat Dreams, you’ll find 30 fun-filled illustrations that reveal the kinds of adventures cats are having in their dreams. In addition, there are two “challenge pages” for drawing some cat dreams of your own.

Each coloring page is single-sided, with the back intentionally left blank, so they can be colored more cleanly and even removed from the book for display, if desired.

Along with coloring and drawing fun, this book can be used in various ways to promote language development in children. It includes a page of useful ideas to help parents make the most of the book as a productive language tool with their kids.
