Eclair Goes Geocaching Giveaway

Eclair Goes Geocaching

Cover Front - Cover 1 150dpi

When seven-year-old Éclair goes geocaching for the first time, she finds a treasure that isn’t the one she imagined. Young readers will discover what geocaching is all about through Éclair's journey with her eccentric grandma.

This book will be hidden in geocaching sites around the US as a fun read for early readers. My hope is that young readers all over the US will learn what geocaching is through Eclair's antic with Grandma Stella.

Here’s what readers are saying: 

“This heartwarming, educational story will show children that even though things don't always turn out as we expect them to, sometimes they're even better than we could ever have imagined.” Mel Finefrock, Patchwork Poetry. 

“I loved it. The grandma was modern and fun! I liked how Éclair was curious and tender-hearted! Their relationship is touching and realistic!” Cindy Nash, Kindergarten Teacher 

"I love how adventurous Éclair and Stella are! I love geocaching and it was super fun to read about the awesome treasure hunt Stella took Éclair on." Olivia Rattie, 8 years old 

  “Éclair had so much fun geocaching that I would love to do that too. I can’t wait to read about her next adventure.” Katrena Strother, 8 years old 

  “Bored? Need something more exciting? Do what Éclair and Stella did. Try geocaching.” The Simon Mates, avid geocachers

Hi, I’m Éclair and I’m seven. My sister Meggie is two. When mom got sick we had to go live with Stella, my dad’s mom, the one with maroon colored hair. I begged Dad not to make us stay with her because she beat her horse and was going to eat her rooster, but he didn’t believe me. Even after I pretended I was going to barf, he left us with Stella.

So there we were, Meggie and me, on a strange pink farm with a skinny horse, a mean rooster, and Stinky Stella who had a living room filled with dead deer heads.

What would she do to us?

Would we end up on her wall too?

MY HONEST REVIEW OF Eclair goes Geocaching

Stella invites Éclair to go geocaching with her. She explains that it is hunting for a hidden treasure. Éclair misunderstands and believes that they will find gold, like a pirate’s treasure. She is very disappointed when they uncover the treasure in the cache. Stella has to explain to Éclair that the treasure is in the adventure.

This was a cute story, with hidden learning curves in it. I agree that the adventure is the true treasure. I have been geocaching before and enjoyed it immensely. I’m sure that this book can help draw children into the adventure of geocaching. It’s an experience they will remember.

About the Author
Bronze Medal Winner in Dan Poytner's Global eBook Awards.
Winner of the Kindle Book Promotion Awards

Michelle is a fulltime employee of God's kingdom, writing and encouraging writers every day. She's often a sucker for emotional stories, her sensitive side fueling the passion for her character's plights, often giving her the ability to show readers the "other" side of the story.

She grew up in the burbs of Detroit with five brothers. No sisters. Each time her mom brought the boy bundle home from the hospital Michelle cried, certain her mom liked boys better than girls. But when her brothers pitched in with the cooking, cleaning, and babysitting--without drama, Michelle discovered having brothers wasn't so bad. They even taught her how to take direct criticism without flinching, which might come in handy with book reviews. 

Michelle is living her dream--writing every day and thanking God for the stories He puts in her path. When Michelle isn't writing she's winning ugly on the tennis court. She's known as "Queen of the Rim Shots." No joke. It's ugly.

CACHE a PREDATOR is currently hidden in geocaching sites throughout the US. If you'd like to see where there might be a novel hidden in your area, please log in to geocaching.com and search for trackables at IN SCRIBE--that's Michelle.

    1. It is fun, especially if the family is involved.

  2. I've never been geocaching either, I seem to be missing out on all the fun xx

  3. Hi Julie--What a pretty blog you have here. Love the pink flowered border. Thanks for reading Eclair's latest story and sharing a review. I love that you think kids will learn about geocaching with this book. I hope so too!

    1. Well, thank you Michelle. I think it makes for a good starter book for geocaching.

  4. Hopefully the book will encourage some families to venture outside with their kids and try geocaching. I found my first cache over 10 years and I actually attended a geocaching event this evening. :)

    1. I've been one time and really enjoyed it. It's great for a family outing.

  5. I have never been geocaching. This would be a good book for kids to learn about geocaching and become interested in it.
