My name is Dr. Claudia Morgan-Morris and I am a retired teacher from New York City Public School. I believe that children should read because reading is the foundation for success in education. I began writing Children Books that would be fun and can be used across the curriculum.
My inspiration to write books about this mouse came about when I was
living in Manhattan. I used to take the subway daily and was petrified of the
sights I would see on the tracks. The mice were everywhere and were not
afraid to show their faces. The final straw was when I came face to face
with a mouse at a private daycare. This mouse was determine to spend the
day with me. He was relentless and made it known that he was not going
to "give up" on making his presence known.
Writing has always been a long time hobby and passion for me and after a
lot of contemplation, the inspiration came to me, “write a children’s book
series featuring a mouse named "Dusty.” I decided to give Dusty human
characteristics to help me to overcome my fear.
These books will feature Dusty in many adventures while delivering thought
provoking messages, encouraging child literacy, basic vocabulary, and
comprehension skills. Beginning early language instruction sets the stage
for children to develop advanced levels of proficiency in reading and
language development. Studies have shown repeatedly that early language
development increases critical thinking skills, creativity, and flexibility of
the mind in young children.
In today’s growing global economy it is important to teach our children to
become better readers by developing these skills at an early age. The
intention is not to write another illustrated book series featuring animals,
but to truly captivate and engage people with vividly appealing stories, set
within unique cultural environments to promote learning and curiosity.
