Happy New Year 2017!
This year will be filled with wonderful travels and new books primarily on science and sports! We already skiied in Vermont twice! We will be heading to Idaho, Wyoming, Utah(end of February) and Alberta, Canada and British Columbia (in April) and perhaps even to Valle Nevado in Chile (summertime), and maybe Madagascar. The ski bug has hit us bad. So we need to find our mountains in the US, Canada and wow! South America. In the meantime we might check out the volcanoes around for waste management ideas. Volcanoes make great garbage cans!
Please check out Catskills in the Rocky Mountains. This is a fun short novel for kids in elementary and middle school to read about skiing and snowboarding adventures. Look for more ski adventures to come!
Children love adventure and so do adults! At the Pia Lord Company we combine science and adventure and write books on , open water swimming, geography, geology, space science, seismology, travel, time and romance short stories.
Our books are great for young environmentally conscious travelers seeking to learn about different areas of the world.Our books are also ideal for classroom science teachers because they have activities and research projects in them for students to do. We are continually writing and expanding the regions that we cover in our books. So keep checking our website for new books!
