If you are a professional educator or a home educating parent who follow more structured approach, using the series as teaching/learning resource will help you introduce cross-curricular and multi-cultural aspects into your sessions.
The whole series is presented to you in a form of easy-to-read short entries depicting the adventures that our family have had, and will offer hours of fun for you and your children/students.

Each book in the series will show you how to look for and explore educational moments so naturally occurring in your family life and quite possibly in your professional life as an educator, and how to stretch the potentially educational content of each of these moments to the maximum. Just follow our suggestions which you will find in the Educational Value section in the second part of each book and sooner than later you will catch the wind. In no time will you start noticing that it’s easy to turn everyday moments into powerful learning adventures!
The suggestions in our Educational Value sections are exemplary only and are not exhaustive.
Because all the stories are written from the perspectives of a child they may easily give your own children and students a feeling that everyone can be an adventurer. And what is more to it, all the entries are genuine - they did happen! This will let your children/students identify with the main characters as well as it offers plenty of opportunities for further discussions.
