I lived and was raised in the beautiful land and country of Zimbabwe, Africa (home will always be home). We relocated to Wanaque, New Jersey, USA, our new home and where our younger son, Frankie, took up his “American Dream”.
My husband George, sons Johnny, Elia and Frankie encouraged me to write my first children’s book titled My First Travel Book, which was inspired by Frankie (Captain Frankie). Given a wonderful opportunity, he graduated in his Masters degree in Aeronautical Science, and is successful in his career as a professional pilot. My favorite saying is: “Be Bold Be Brave”.
My dream is to be given the opportunity for my book to reach each and every less fortunate child who will have the opportunity to fantasy travels through our book to see our lovely world destinations, and to one day to give back and assist the needy in Africa and beyond, to keep giving care and love to the less fortunate. Whilst in Zimbabwe I was involved with many charitable organizations and groups where my greatest passion and love was with the primitive, simple people of Zimbabwe, Africa and will still continue to reach out to the many beautiful children of the world.
Whilst writing my book, a memory returned of seeing a wooden model of an airplane that had been built and carved by a child in Zimbabwe as he had seen and imagined this bird (airplane) from high above. Today, this is displayed in the museum of Gweru, Zimbabwe, and I would love to locate and donate My First Travel Book to this amazing individual.
Now living in the USA, after having traveled some short and some long journeys, to get to our final destination, we realize how small this world really is, yet is also so big and so beautiful in each and every corner. Still so much is untouched by humans, which will hopefully remain sacred in many areas. We have to cherish every and all beautiful things that our planet earth has to offer to us.
This book is in its simplest form: fun, educational and informative, which plays an important part in connecting our children with our world, through good old-fashioned reading and an abundance of fun and imagination. So let your imagination run free and connect with our truly wonderful world. Come on and fly the skies with us on Angelic Airlines to some popular world destinations with your friendly “ Captain Frankie “.
