About the Book

The purpose of "Bumble Bee" is to foster an environment that encourages parent-child interaction. As the author, I also want to expand the knowledge of every reader. It is my understanding that if a child hears a larger word early in their development they are more likely to grasp an advanced vocabulary as they develop. My goal throughout "Bumble Bee" is to engage all readers, including parents, so that everyone enjoys themselves throughout the book. I have composed an upbeat tempo and expanded vocabulary to accomplish my hopes and desires for this book. The illustrator has created drawings that are bright, fun and whimsical to pull in and capture the attention of your little one.

About the Author

The illustrator (Daniel Jarc) and I created "Bumble Bee" while deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. During our tour in Afghanistan we served as Medical Evacuation (MEDEVAC) helicopter pilots for the U.S. Army. Mr. Jarc and I served not only as MEDEVAC support for our own U.S. and coalition forces, but also provided medical transportation and en route medical care to local Afghani citizens. Some of the Afghani citizens we provided medical assistance to included children. At times these were children who simply needed transportation to a higher level of care facility. Without our service, those children would not have been able to get the medical care they needed. "Bumble Bee" was written as a way to bring a little bit of lighthearted fun into an otherwise serious environment. We hope that you too will enjoy the fun that we have created.
