When seven-year-old Éclair goes geocaching for the first time, she finds a treasure that isn’t the one she imagined.
Young readers will discover what geocaching is all about through Éclair’s journey with her eccentric grandma.
This book will be hidden in geocaching sites around the US as a fun read for early readers. My hope is that young readers all over the US will learn what geocaching is through Eclair’s antic with Grandma Stella.
Here’s what readers are saying:
“This heartwarming, educational story will show children that even though things don’t always turn out as we expect them to, sometimes they’re even better than we could ever have imagined.” Mel Finefrock, Patchwork Poetry.
“I loved it. The grandma was modern and fun! I liked how Éclair was curious and tender-hearted! Their relationship is touching and realistic!” Cindy Nash, Kindergarten Teacher
“I love how adventurous Éclair and Stella are! I love geocaching and it was super fun to read about the awesome treasure hunt Stella took Éclair on.” Olivia Rattie, 8 years old
“Éclair had so much fun geocaching that I would love to do that too. I can’t wait to read about her next adventure.” Katrena Strother, 8 years old
“Bored? Need something more exciting? Do what Éclair and Stella did. Try geocaching.” The Simon Mates, avid geocachers
Éclair Goes Geocaching, is a wonderful book for young explorers to get into. It all starts with Eclair, 7 years old who lives with her Grandmother, who although takes some getting used too, is really fun to be around. Eccentric in her own ways, her Grandmother decided to take young Eclair geocaching to cheer her up a bit . Thinking it’s a pure treasure hunt, Eclair is a little disappointed as they found their first geocache, but slowly and surely along the journey she starts to see the whole picture as well as the idea behind geocaching. Eclair, even though was immediately let down as they began, she doesn’t give up or turn her nose up to the activity but keeps going and ends up enjoying it fully.
You know how kids are, engaged one minute, not the next so when you find that activity that keeps their attention as well as imagination going, you don’t want to stop. Through the book young explores will find out what geocaching really is, and follow Eclair along her adventure. This is geared for about 7-8 year olds, easy to read and follow, not a picture book but that doesn’t take anything away from it at all. My girls enjoyed this and we have started our own geocaching adventure each weekend. If you have a young explore on your hands this is a wonderful short story they would enjoy and you just like my own kids may find themselves wanting to jump into the fun adventures of geocaching!

Eclair Goes to Stella’s
Hi, I’m Éclair and I’m seven. My sister Meggie is two. When mom got sick we had to go live with Stella, my dad’s mom, the one with maroon colored hair. I begged Dad not to make us stay with her because she beat her horse and was going to eat her rooster, but he didn’t believe me. Even after I pretended I was going to barf, he left us with Stella.<
So there we were, Meggie and me, on a strange pink farm with a skinny horse, a mean rooster, and Stinky Stella who had a living room filled with dead deer heads.
What would she do to us?
Would we end up on her wall too?

Michelle is a fulltime employee of God’s kingdom, writing and encouraging writers every day. She’s often a sucker for emotional stories, her sensitive side fueling the passion for her character’s plights, often giving her the ability to show readers the “other” side of the story.
She grew up in the burbs of Detroit with five brothers. No sisters. Each time her mom brought the boy bundle home from the hospital Michelle cried, certain her mom liked boys better than girls. But when her brothers pitched in with the cooking, cleaning, and babysitting–without drama, Michelle discovered having brothers wasn’t so bad. They even taught her how to take direct criticism without flinching, which might come in handy with book reviews.
Michelle is living her dream–writing every day and thanking God for the stories He puts in her path. When Michelle isn’t writing she’s winning ugly on the tennis court. She’s known as “Queen of the Rim Shots.” No joke. It’s ugly.<
