“The Adventures of Bella and Harry, Let’s Visit Maui!” is the 12th installment in this children’s series, and follows a pair of cute and cuddly Chihuahua pups as they visit a dormant volcano, attend a luau and learn to hula. Author Lisa Manzione based this series of children’s books on the premise that geography is one of the most important parts of learning, and aims to help children think globally, not only about the area in which they live. “I do not believe that there are enough books for children between the ages of five and ten years that address geography, customs, cultures, etc,” says Manzione. “I thought [these books] would be a good introduction for children, and hopefully stimulate their curiosity for more knowledge regarding the world in which we live.” Follow the two Chihuahuas as they travel to various major cities of the world, including Paris, London, Rome, and now Maui, making geography fun and exciting for kids – and learn some new things for yourself as well.

    Stay ahead of the curve this upcoming school year with the engaging Bellartisan educational activity books. Chole and Grahame Arnould created Bellartisan writing, printing and numbers books for students and people learning English as a second language. Practice cursive, printing and numbers at home, at school or while riding in the car. Each novelty book is filled with rich information and visuals, making them fun to use and great gifts. Bellartisan's activity books are the perfect way to engage and entertain children away from the ever present tablets, gaming systems and laptops. With many schools eliminating writing lessons from their curriculum, the Writing book is an ideal tool for learning cursive at home.

    Great for home schooling, extra practice or just for fun, and each book offers hours of educational fun wrapped up in a work of art. These activity books make a great gift for teachers, students and adults working on English or literacy skills, and 10 percent of all Bellartisan's product sales go toward clean water and sanitation technology in developing countries. For more information please visit or contact
