About the Author

Beatrix S. Tambunan has a background in Human Resources with a MS degree from Suffolk University and Graduate Certificate from Harvard University. She currently lives in Boston with her husband and daughter. "An Eagle Named Canary" is her first children's book. Inspired by living in various parts of the world and enjoying the beauty of all cultures, Beatrix embraces diversity and encourages empowerment.

"I started to write and illustrate children's books since I want to communicate positivity and empowerment to young children. I have to say my daughter, Sarah, really inspired me to write with excitement.

My background is in Human Resources where I managed adults in a very corporate environment. Unfortunately, there is very little room for creativity and adults are immune to change. I finally took a break from a high strung work environment....I believe I found my passion.

Looking back, I remember being awkward as a little girl. I lacked self-esteem and often felt displaced at school. I didn't know how to empower myself in many areas and the only books of inspiration were fairy tales.

Presently, I'm a proud mother and my wonderful daughter is my biggest support. My mission is to ignite the message of self worth, valuable relationships, and empowerment in my books, helping and inspiring children

The Golden Egg is the cute story about a girl named Addy who is growing up. While her parents are trying to teach Addy responsibility she still wants to enjoy fun things that others deem childish such as Easter Egg hunts. When Addy finds a very special egg, a bird teaches her about her role in life and growing up. Addy is ten which is an age at which children are still trying to figure out the world and learn their place, their roles and responsibilities in it. Addy is an endearing character who children will get along with and be able to relate to. I was disappointed when the story ended because I would have loved to read more about Addy as she learned and grew! She is a very fun character. I hope we will see more of her in the future. Another winner from Beatrix Tambunan!

This is a modern Easter story for older kids. This story has an effective message for tweens/teens and highlights themes on new beginnings and responsibility. I believe that tweens would be able to relate to this story. It has an exceptional way of showing the mystery of the egg and the symbolism of hope and change. I highly recommend it.
