Episode 5: Rescuing Lost Pufflings in Iceland, and my book award!

I won a Moonbean Children's book award for my book about Icelandic Puffins!

Episode Notes

This is an exciting episode for 2 reasons! First, I share the amazing story of how children in Iceland rescue thousands of baby puffins (pufflings) every year.

Second, the book I wrote about this true story just won a children's book award! I won the silver medal for (second) best children's picture eBook at the Moonbeam Children's Book Awards!

"Lundi the Lost Puffin" is on sale right now to celebrate the award. See the book on Amazon!

RA Anderson also won a Moonbeam award for her book series about ... puffins in Iceland! Here is the first of her books on Amazon!

Episode 4: 3 reasons to visit the Westman Islands in Iceland

A ferry ride to a new world of volcanos, puffins, and much more!

Episode Notes

Most people don't visit the Westman Islands during their Iceland vacation. And that's too bad! A fun and not too long ferry ride (which is an adventure in itself) gets you to a fascinating island with a rich history. The recent volcano eruption here isn't ancient history. Add millions of puffins, a rope attached to a cliff, and more, and you're in for a memorable trip!
