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 eighth 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!
The grand rescue plan is put into action, and is only made possible by the kids taking ownership of their gifts and abilities. After commandeering a helicopter, Crameye, Neva and Buster follow the condor’s tip and race to Lake Titicaca where Thor is being held on a floating island built by the local Uru tribe. Under Buster’s charge and with the help of a swarm of Titicaca giant frogs, Thor is rescued and taken to safety in Cuzco. The only thing left to do after that was for Neva to reunite with her mom…In a dramatic scene set at Macchu Pichu as a storm is blowing in over the mountains, Crameye and Neva learn even more about their families as the five adults face off. In the end, Neva tearfully reunites with her mom as everyone learns she might not be as evil as previously thought, and that some of her past choices might have been done to keep them safe. After their emotional journey, the good guys all go to Paris for a little R&R, where the next series of adventures begins…
What will kids learn?
Children will learn about a couple of Peru’s mythological creatures, as well as the history of the Uru tribe of Lake Titicaca, and the history of the Incas. Peruvian wildlife also takes center stage here, with condors and giant frogs taking a major role. They will also get a front row seat to Macchu Picchu while learning about its history and ancient use.
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.
