I’ve often expressed my fascination with 20-30 year-olds for their gumption and innovative ways of thinking. Laura Schaefer is a perfect example.
Laura’s an accomplished author and best known for her popular Teashop Girls books. She’s also a savvy businesswoman. Of course, you can find her on Facebook and Twitter. And take a look how she creatively targets her tween audience with this upcoming Teashop Girls Treasure Hunt.
Recently, Laura has stepped out with a new project—Planet Explorers: Travel Guides for Kids. She sells them as eBooks on Amazon for $2.99, which is such a bargain considering how packed each guide is with interesting and useful information.
Even though she directs Planet Explorers to tweens, they’re interesting for adults as well. Just ask me—I’m traveling to Philadelphia next month and jumped at the chance to check out her newly released Planet Explorers: Philadelphia, priced at just .99 for a limited time.
Once again, Laura comes through.
Thanks to Planet Explorers, I’ve now made my list of must-see-and-do’s. I’m a huge history buff and not only does Laura point out Philly’s great historical sites, she also covers the city’s founding story and fun “did you know?” trivia. For each site, she includes links to further information, good imagery and, best of all, nearby places to eat. Oh, she knows her audience well!
I can see Planet Explorers being a great tool for parents and teachers. We all know tweens aren’t the easiest sells for family vacations or classroom geography—here’s a guide directed specifically to them.
