Dean was so inspired by the sights, people and wildlife that he encountered during his journeys around the world that he needed to share them. He narrates his experiences in “Wondrous Journey” and puts a valuable educational twist on the award-winning “Wondrous Creatures”.

    Wondrous Creatures

    "Wondrous Creatures" is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iPad, and with iTunes on your computer.

    Dean teaches children about the animal kingdom through photos, stories, recordings, 3D maps, simple quizzes, and more—all while reinforcing reading skills and knowledge of the alphabet. Covering a different creature for every letter from A to Z, Dean explains what each one eats, where it lives, its size, and what makes it special. For letter X, Dean invites readers to create their own animal using special drawing and writing tools built right into the book. Those who have found creatures in their own backyard can also use this book to write about, photograph, and share their findings with others.
