dc.description.abstract Having always been an avid reader and a lover ofbooks, one ofmy life goals, for as long as I can remember, has been to write and publish a children's book. Being an elementary education major here at Ball State University, I feel I have learned so much about children and how they cognitively develop. Taking that knowledge and adding to it my extensive knowledge on children's literature, I sat down to write this, my very first book. In my writing, I decided to couple my passion for working with children with my love oftraveling; this resulted in Kate's London Adventure. This short story picture book is about a young girl and her mischievous brother who travel to London to meet and stay with their aunt during their summer vacation from school. Written in journalistic style, I take on the voice of Kate. In twenty-four journal entries, the reader will travel from California to London and back again. The reader will tag along with Kate, Ronnie, and Aunt Irene as they visit famous museums, eat at local pubs, and ride on varying forms of transportation. I wrote this book in journal style so children could better relate to the voice ofthe narrator and so they could see, through the eyes of someone their own age, just how fun and exciting traveling can be. My goal for this book is that children will be engaged while reading and will simultaneously be learning about a foreign city's culture and unique history.
