If you have a young reader in your home, you won't want to miss this discussion with author Amanda Cleary Eastep! Amanda has written a book series for children 8-12 that is full of adventure and mystery, based on biblical truth. We'll visit with Amanda Cleary Eastep about The Tree Street Kids books as we talk about getting back to school on Monday's show!
It's back to school time with many children here in the QCA already back in the classroom! Parenting expert Danny Huerta will be with us to talk about this new school year, what you can do to help your student in this transition from summer fun to back-to-school busyness along with encouragement for parents to focus on what's most important throughout the school year!
Amanda Cleary Eastep is not related to Beverly Cleary, but she wishes she were. She is, however, a children’s author, and the Tree Street Kids is her middle-grade series for readers 8-12. Her other children’s writing has been published in magazines, Sunday school curriculum, and devotionals; she is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and she
has taught writing to teens. Cleary Eastep lives in the mountains with her husband, her books, and one devious groundhog.
Daniel Huerta is the vice president of the Parenting and Youth department at Focus on the Family. In this role, he oversees Focus’ initiatives that equip parents to disciple and mentor the next generation, so that they can thrive in Christ.
