My Story - Eleanor McKone - Author
My passion for writing children's books developed whilst undertaking my degree in Children, Young People and Families. Whilst conducting my 3rd year research study, I discovered in greater depth the importance of reading from a young age. Reading not only improves word recognition, it also enhances a child's all-round academic development. From this, I began to write my own series of books for children,'Piper's Passport'.
Before I began University, I travelled and worked internationally and established a passion for different cultures and societies. Travelling has become a big part of my life and I will always continue to explore new places. From reading my stories, I would love children to develop an understanding of different countries and cultures, as I am aware that many children will not have the opportunity to experience them for themselves. I hope that my stories also encourage children to aspire to travel and explore the beautiful world that we live in.
