ISABEL VISITS BEACHES

PRINT AND E-BOOKS NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON!

A member of Isabel’s World, "Isabel Visits Beaches" is a whimsical travel adventure narrated by leading lady Isabel. Through witty narrative and bright illustrations, she and friends journey from St. Augustine, FL; to Hawaii; to Sylt, Germany.

Isabel invites You (her audience) to ponder questions about relationships, self-consciousness, prudishness, coincidences, safety at the beach, and gossip, while, at the same time, offering tidbits about places and their occupants. She encourages You to write Your responses or draw pictures in a notebook, believing that You absorb and enjoy more when You are actively engaged.

Valerie M. D’Ortona’s delightful book—with maps and Glossary—is for anyone with a heart open to the notion that maybe cows can talk. MOO!

__________________________________________________

Isabel is usually a happy bovine, frolicking through pastures, and cavorting with her friends, and she is THRILLED with the outcome of her book, Big T.’s Heart’s in Me!

However, the subject matter is the bummer. As many of Isabel’s loyal followers already know, Kenneth Anthony “Tony” D’Ortona died on Father’s Day, June 15, 2008. The only child (born 1974) of Isabel’s creator Valerie, his loss, though kick-in-the-gut-wrenching, eventually evolved into her grief journey of writing and painting.

An educator, Valerie designed the book to serve as a learning tool for children (of all ages). She illustrates organ placement in Big T.’s body, provides a glossary to define terms, encourages people to fasten their seat belts, and urges readers to register to be organ donors.
