Ready for adventure?
These books are perfect for classroom teachers and homeschoolers who want to introduce kids to world cultures beyond just providing basic country facts and figures. These books introduce kids to the way peoples around the world think and live their lives. At the same time, they are chock full of intrigue, humor, and rich characters so kids don't even realize they are learning.
Our adventure books also serve as great launch pads to teaching other subjects (see workbooks below). Whether you need a world cultures curriculum, reading supplement, writing workshop, or critical thinking training, we’ve got you covered!
This is the seventh book in our first series of adventure books introducing world cultures. The e-book has been enhanced with pop-up images, recordings of foreign word pronunciations, and an end-of-book quiz and discussion page. Both .mobi (Kindle) and .epub (everything else) files are provided. Each book is written at roughly the 5th grade level, is between 45-55 pages, and concludes with an informative Country Breakdown. As our adventure books have an overarching storyline, it is best to read them in order!
Crameye and Neva learn all about their families as they speed to Peru to rescue Thor. The two brothers, Marco and Ignazio, both started off on the same culture-preserving team. This is the time when Ignazio and Sonia were together and had Crosspatch. On the dads’ first solo missions, however, they each had experiences that would change them forever. Marco became even more devoted to protecting smaller cultures when a folk remedy in Libya saved his life. Ignazio, however, lost his dedication to the cause, as well as two fingers, during his mission to Papua New Guinea.Sonia, not wanting to be with someone who was developing evil intentions, divorced Ignazio as he left to join the opposing forces. Not too much longer, Matias came along, and then so did Neva and Thor. A few years later, Sonia disappeared, apparently to rejoin Ignazio, and hadn’t been heard from since that night in Tanzania.All that drama aside, they get down to business. Or rather, the parents do while the kids are given busywork surveying the Nazca Lines. They have their own idea, however, and with the help of an Andean condor launch their own plan to save Thor.
What will kids learn?
Children will learn about the Dani tribe and Nomadic tribes of northern Africa before the action even gets to Peru. Once there, they will learn about the amazing cultural diversity of Peru, as well about the food, cultures, and traditions. They will also learn about the history of the Nazca Lines, as well as the history of the ancient capital Cuzco.
Who is Crameye Junker?
Crameye Junker is a 12-year-old living in Taipei, Taiwan with his family. These books were written by Crameye himself as he shares his family's adventures around the world. Along with his kid sister, Buster, and his best friend, Neva, Crameye struggles to understand why his family is always traveling, what his father's mysterious job is, and why he always finds himself in the middle of something amazing. Series One: Initiation follows Crameye on his adventures around the world until the ultimate and life-changing realization of what his family is all about, and the role he must play in his family's mission. These books are full of intrigue, mystery, and humor, as well as introduce the cultures of the world.
