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.

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?

While it has been ages since I have picked up a children’s book to read, I truly enjoyed Eclair Goes Geocaching. I am certain – I read the book electronically – that children will fall in love with Eclair as she has a lot going on in her life. She lives with her grandmother – a character I can truly relate with – which is something I did when I was a child. She has a younger sister who is a grabby toddler. And, most importantly, geocaching is new to her.
When Grandma Stella asks Eclair about going geocaching, she does not fully explain that the word is cache, not cash. She also says there is treasure to be found but it not the pirate treasure Eclair is looking to find. The treasure is the geocache box.
Grab your favorite child and read this book to them or read it for yourself. Then, head outside and go geocaching.

I really enjoyed the first Eclair read, haven’t had chance to read this one but she is sooo cute.
This is my first Eclair read. I wish this series had been around when my kids were little.
Hi Nicki, Thanks for reading Eclair and sharing her story with your readers! My hope is for children to learn about a new sport they can enjoy with their friends and family. At one time, I didn’t know what geocaching was either.
I love geocaching! Kids would enjoy it.
