Synopses & Reviews
Spenser's travels offer children and the adults in their live fascinating, challenging, and compassionate learning experiences about the United States. These stories of Spenser, a very small, almost human dog, are appealing because of Spenser's personality and the fact that he does very cool things with his traveling companion, his mother (things other kids want to do). Spenser possesses character traits that children can relate to and that the adults want children to emulate: curiosity, compassion, and a sense of adventure. Spenser details his travels so that children can learn the history, culture, and geography of the different parts of the United States.
About the Author
Mom is the originator of the SpenserNation concept. Spenser is a nine-year-old Yorkshire terrier (Yorkie)—but never call him a dog. Mom developed these ideas as the result of comments from friends who received her e-mails about Spensers travels. Mom is, by profession, a health-care consultant and Spenser has traveled with her to jobs around the country since he was a pup. Mom cares deeply about hungry children in America and decided to use the skills God blessed her with to support the food banks associated with Feeding America. As part of their travels, Mom and Spenser have also been lucky enough to participate in some of Americas many serving organizations working to improve the lives of people.
