    Among the 18 authors present at this event, Dr. Elana Ashley will bring the first two books in her Children's Adventure Series called Splunkunio Splunkey Detective and Peacemaker.  Both books are available in English and English/Spanish editions.

    The first book is entitled Case One: The Missing Friendship Bracelet. This book comes with a CD in which Dr. Ashley takes on the voices and personalities of the storybook characters as she dramatically recites the story in English.  In addition, for those adults interested, Dr. Ashley has written a work entitled Teaching Guide for Educators and Parents to accompany the 1st book.  Solving problems of loss and resolving conflicts are key issues.

    The second book, Case Two: Big Bully Holly Howler, includes the story, a series of questions and a poem. The Teaching Guide has very pertinent information to help children understand concepts in the second book as well.  Both books focus on the importance of friendship and teamwork. Big Bully Holly Howler targets bullying prevention through wise, anti-bullying strategies.
