Great for literacy programs...
Students identify with the main characters in each book and see themselves in the stories. This is important because good readers make connections while they are reading and this helps them to comprehend what they are reading.
Purposely selected and challenging vocabulary words are used in each story so that students can increase the number of words that they know and learn how to use them proficiently. Research shows that students need to keep reading so that they can keep increasing their vocabulary.
...and spiritual development

Dr. Tricia Collins grew up in Kingston, Jamaica but migrated to the United States in her early twenties. She is a seasoned educator with more than eighteen years classroom experience. The fascinating imagination of her students has inspired her to write more books. Dr. Collins hopes that her writing will motivate her students to write as well.
She shares that as a school teacher, it is so heartwarming when students from every grade stop her in the hallway to tell her how much they enjoy her books. "I’ve had responses from 'I love that little girl in your books' to 'Was that book about you?'”.
She goes on to share that she is happy that her writing has had this effect on children because that was precisely the result that she was looking for. She believes that it means that she has to get back to work to keep writing more books to keep children reading...and not just reading, but enjoying what they are reading as well.
The devotional book, Prayings have become a very precious item to Dr. Collins. She has been writing devotionals for a few years now and is finally putting them into books because it will reach more believers. "It gives me the opportunity to evangelize. It is an honor," she says.
