After Commonwealth Editions best-selling author Martha Day Zschock created ten books for the "Journey Around" series, she focused her trademark artistry, whimsy, and feeling for place and created a new board book series about favorite places in New England and beyond. Hello, Cape Cod! takes children and the parents who read to them along Cape Cod, with its many fun and sometimes tasty attractions. A resident of Orleans on Cape Cod and a former third-grade teacher in the Barnstable school system, Zschock is perfectly tuned in to what young people find most engaging in her own backyard. For ages 2-5.
About the Author
Martha Zschock lives with her family on Cape Cod. A former elementary school teacher, she was inspired by field trips with her students to write her first book, Journey Around Cape Cod from A to Z. Martha's journey has continued with more books in the series from other places including, Boston, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Chicago, Maine, Nantucket, and New York. Martha and her family enjoy the journey of creating the series, which includes lots of traveling, writing, painting, and meeting lots of wonderful children and adults along the way. Martha often collaborates on projects with her twin sister, Heather, an art director and freelance designer. When her twin sister had a baby, Martha began writing and painting for a new "Hello!" series of board books which take the youngest explorers on journeys to several locations such as Florida, Brooklyn, Washington DC, Boston, Yellowstone, and America.
