Children’s Books – Let’s Learn While Playing

The best way for kids to learn is through the power of words.

I’m a strong believer that children learn through play while interacting with the world around them; that includes peers, materials, and social environment (according to the constructivist approach of Piaget and Vygotsky). And that is the philosophy I follow while writing fun and didactic stories for the little ones.

In this special section of my writing universe, you will find children’s books. They are part of the series “Let’s Learn While Playing.” This series’ mission is to help children learn valuable life and educational lessons through play, all the while having fun and using their imagination.

Each book portrays vivacious characters that will get the kiddos engaged and nurtured. Not only that, but children will immerse themselves in literature and learn the power of a good read.

Join us on this journey. Let’s get reading!


These children’s books are part of the series Let’s Learn While Playing.
