The idea of creating her first book is a direct result of her research into creating a toy for children. It came out of a need to educate very young children as well as their parents to become more aware of the world around them. The first book in the series is just a concept to introduce the two main characters Billy Jean the Cloud and Bill the Hawksbill Turtle. The books to follow will give out concrete examples of ways to do simple things to help bring changes that counters the effects of man made changes in our world. It is her vision to educate the very young because they are our future and they will make policies and move nations.
