There are not many children book authors that can write to educate children, and also show them how to have fun. Tali Carmi is an author who provides both to her readers with illustrations that help children identify exactly what they are reading about. Abigail is an imaginative red-haired little girl who knows how to turn a boring day into one that is filled with fun and knowledge.
What Can a Rainy Day Lead to?
Everyone knows that rainy days seem to take the fun out of a person, especially a child. They want to go outside and play, but the weather does not allow them to participate in outside activities. Abigail experiences one of those rainy days, and began to think about places where it does not ever rain, in Abigail And The Tropical Island Adventure.
A Magical Bicycle
Most children are not yet capable to drive cars, so their best means of transportation is their imagination and a bike. Abigail has both, and her bike is one that she cherishes since she found it in her grandparents garage. Her grandfather was an inventor who was able to pass a large amount of his knowledge to her, which makes it easier for her to explore places her imagination takes her.
An Island With A Different Culture
The island where Abigail finds herself is filled with adventure and new objects she never heard of before. She was able to learn about the creatures of the sea, and the different types of foods that islanders eat that come from the ocean. Even the clothes worn are different, but they are suitable for the climate and culture of the tropical islanders.
Helping Others Equals Success
Abigail dodged the rainy weather at her home, and barely missed the horrible storm that caused power outages at the tropical island. The power outages almost caused Abigail’s new friend Lelei to not enjoy the festivities her friends and family planned for her birthday. Luckily, the bicycle that Abigail found in the garage had pedals that were ready to turn, and she was able to save the party by restoring the electricity.
