Joan's life work is this series of 25 luminously composed children’s books, each with an animal protagonist, a compelling geographic location, an important life skills message and multicultural enrichment materials.
Each serious lesson is embedded in an exciting colorful adventurous story...subtle, indeed.
These books are cleverly and skillfully written by published authors with a high level of literary talent and wit. The books have been proofed and re-proofed for the most exacting standards of accuracy in grammar, punctuation and fact checking. They have been reviewed…pre-publication…by teachers and librarians for relevance and the power of the message.
Joan’s career has been the publishing of health and guidance programs for elementary children through her company, MarshFilm Enterprises, Inc.dba MarshMedia, established in 1969.
The centerpiece of that work is her 25 children’s books in hardcover, which are now available as eBooks through amazon.com, barnes and noble, smashwords, itunes.
The timeless animal protagonists, the rich multicultural settings, the enrichment materials with each story, make these eBooks winners for parents and children alike.
