Eclair Goes Geocaching – A Book (and activity) Review

Eclair Goes Geocaching
Cover Front - Cover 1 150dpi
AWARD WINNING and BESTSELLING Author

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.

Here’s what readers are saying:
“This heartwarming, educational story will show children that even though things don’t always turn out as we expect them to, sometimes they’re even better than we could ever have imagined.” Mel Finefrock, Patchwork Poetry.
“I loved it. The grandma was modern and fun! I liked how Éclair was curious and tender-hearted! Their relationship is touching and realistic!” Cindy Nash, Kindergarten Teacher
“I love how adventurous Éclair and Stella are! I love geocaching and it was super fun to read about the awesome treasure hunt Stella took Éclair on.” Olivia Rattie, 8 years old
“Éclair had so much fun geocaching that I would love to do that too. I can’t wait to read about her next adventure.” Katrena Strother, 8 years old
“Bored? Need something more exciting? Do what Éclair and Stella did. Try geocaching.” The Simon Mates, avid geocachers

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?

Michelle is a fulltime employee of God’s kingdom, writing and encouraging writers every day. She’s often a sucker for emotional stories, her sensitive side fueling the passion for her character’s plights, often giving her the ability to show readers the “other” side of the story.
She grew up in the burbs of Detroit with five brothers. No sisters. Each time her mom brought the boy bundle home from the hospital Michelle cried, certain her mom liked boys better than girls. But when her brothers pitched in with the cooking, cleaning, and babysitting–without drama, Michelle discovered having brothers wasn’t so bad. They even taught her how to take direct criticism without flinching, which might come in handy with book reviews.
Michelle is living her dream–writing every day and thanking God for the stories He puts in her path. When Michelle isn’t writing she’s winning ugly on the tennis court. She’s known as “Queen of the Rim Shots.” No joke. It’s ugly.
CACHE a PREDATOR is currently hidden in geocaching sites throughout the US. If you’d like to see where there might be a novel hidden in your area, please log in to geocaching.com and search for trackables at IN SCRIBE–that’s Michelle.
Eclair Goes Geocaching

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 received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

  1. 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.
