Editorial Reviews

Pat Wyman
“As a learning expert, reading specialist and author, I know how easy it is for children to learn new facts when they read them in a fun and exciting story.

Your child will create a mental movie of this delightful cartoon story and be able to tell you such facts as how deep the Pacific Ocean is, what kinds of fish swim in the ocean, and so much more.

I highly recommend Professor BEEtoven’s Pacific Ocean Adventure for every young reader.”
Carolyn Howard-Johnson
I love good animation, good cartoons. Have since I first spotted Disney’s “Bambi.”

But I’m a writer and know it’s the depth of character, the personalities, the voice that really makes or breaks a project. This book-virtual experience has it! I’m no expert on kids, but I think they’re going to enjoy this one.
Magdalena Ball
If you think that good picture books to amuse children can’t be educational tools for teachers, The Pacific Ocean will change your mind. The book was designed to be used as an educational tool, and provides quite a lot of information about the largest ocean in the world, including such things as what powers controlled it, when it was settled, how it crosses the International Date Line (and what that is), ports, type of fish, average depth and lots more. The information is presented in kid

Professor Beetoven is an smart educated bee who hangs out with a group of friends that exhibit a variety of eclectic character traits, all of which kids can relate to in their own world. Very good cartoon pictures and a nice simple story. I recommend this for kids around 6-9. A plus in the back of the book called "Magic book of knowledge" Just the facts kids has a lot of facts about The Pacific Ocean. This is a keeper and I hope they come out with more books.

“Professor Beetoven is an intelligent bee who hangs out with a group of friends that exhibit a variety of eclectic character traits, all of which kids can relate to in their own world.

The professor is smart, but not a show off; he knows everything, but remains humble. This is a great quality to teach children.

Coupled with the professor’s investigative passion for learning is a sense of adventure that he shares with his friends. My children can relate to the vari

    Cartoons and Teaching

    There is nothing more delightful to the eye of a child than a cartoon and this book really captures learning and fun in one fell swoop. Professor Beetoven and friends cleverly combines all the familiar characteristics of animated characters (color, expression, simplicity and an emphasis on personality traits) with educational value.
    Professor Beetoven is a happy, friendly, intelligent bee who mingles humility with factual knowledge. Able to make and keep friends quickly, the Professor finds the world of nature to be extremely intriguing, and captures that excitement for young readers. His tagline is that he "knows everything" but he is definitely not a "know-it-all".

    Tad the Frog is a bit more like the rest of us. He has a keen interest in exploring the world, and a heart for adventure, and enjoys learning. Bandee, on the other hand, brings to the group some of the natural mischief and fun, as well as a penchant for putting things off. Parkee the parakeet sees his purpose as enlightening his friends about how to nurture and protect the natural world. Snoz the elephant, on the other hand, finds purpose in eating peanuts, and is extremely happy and content. Measels the dog represent the more impatient side of things as he struggles with being mad and fighting. Other characters like Catnap Cat and Barnacle Bill reinforce such qualities and add more entertaining personalities to the mix.

    All the characters together encompass the macroscopic universe of the child's interior world. Children, like the Professor, are certain of what they do know and delight in sharing it, have strong interests in learning more like Tad, are mischievous and in the moment like Bandee, are easily satisfied and content like Snoz, and are in a constant process of learning about self-discipline like Measels. Altogether, Professor Beetoven and friends make for a cast with whom kids can identify and easily emulate.
