Road to Awesome, LLC, Nov 22, 2021
Emersyn Blake is an adorable children's character exploring her world through a lens of STEM. Having loved all things related to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math my entire life, it has always been a dream of mine to write a children's picture book. When my granddaughter, Emersyn Blake, was born, and we saw early on that she was curious and always wanted to be outside, I knew I had to write a series about her explorations! I hope you enjoy reading about the little-known creatures Emersyn finds, researches, and loves. I also hope it inspires you to explore, be curious, wonder, and learn new things no matter where you are!
