As a child, author Lucy M. George wrote stories and poems, directed several plays (starring her sisters) and enjoyed making magic potions out of household goods. She studied English Literature at University and now lives in Wales near the sea where she writes and works. To date she has published over a dozen children’s books for young readers to enjoy and I was lucky enough to be able to enjoy her two latest titles from her Busy People series.

Busy People: Astronaut by Lucy M. George

Busy People

Jenny, Chin, and Kim are finally astronauts after months of training and tests. It’s time to actually go up into the big, wide world of outer space! They do all their preparations, pack up in the rocket ship, and blast off into space! Once they get up there with the rest of the crew and Robo-bot, they have to clean, do experiments, go on space walks, and so much other exciting astronaut duties! They’re even able to communicate with their friends and families on Earth at the end of a long day! How cool is that?

Ever wanted to learn more about space? Here’s your chance in a simple, clear, exciting format! Not only is there an exciting adventure and an “oops” moment with Robo-bot, but they also do experiments! Lucy George includes interesting facts about space and other jobs that are involved with space but don’t necessarily mean traveling for months into a dark void! This is a book to inspire dreams!

2. Eat like an astronaut! Slap some of your favorite liquid-like food (applesauce maybe or yogurt) into a plastic bag and stick a straw in there!
3. Get in tune with your senses with this Galaxy Sensory Bin!

OR you could get really in-depth with thus free Roscoe’s Rocket craft. This was originally created for a Curious George book, but it could be easily adapted to this book.

Busy People
Officer Seth is a great police officer! He arrives to work just on time, makes sure that he has everything he needs for the day, tests out the sirens on his car, and he and his partner patrol the local festival to make sure that everyone is safe. When a little boy tells him that he has lost his parents, Officer Seth and Officer Thea do everything they can to help the little boy find his parents again because that’s just what police officers do!
Here’s yet another inspiring story to give kids professional dreams. Plus, this story shows kids that you can always go to a police officer when you need help. It’s their job to keep their community safe. But if being a police officer isn’t for you and you still want to help with crime, there’s also a Police Sergeant, Forensic scientists, Police dog handlers, and family liaison officers. Tons of jobs that help people just in one department!
Activities:
1. Interested in science? Here’s an awesome Fingerprint experiment at KCEdventures!

2. Every officer needs their radio! Why not recycle a juice box to make yours?

Breaking News! Proof that Dragons are indeed REAL!

My newest book, Dragons are Real is available and the excitement is almost blowing the roof off at Jump Into a Book/Audrey Press headquarters!
Dragons are real
SO…what if I told you that all of the fairy tales, myths and legends that have been told about dragons over the years are WRONG. What if I told you that Dragons are indeed Real and that they are different than you’ve ever imagined?
This fairly true story is based on the author’s childhood friendship with a REAL live Dragon; a very special Dragon that she and her brother spent two magical summers with.

As readers turn the pages and learn the truth about Dragons, they will see that the fiercest beasts in known history can actually be the best of friends. It’s a lesson in finding companionship in the most unusual of places. Dragons are Real is a magical book filled with stunning illustrations and hints that dragon are indeed all around us 🙂

Dragons are Real is now available for purchase on both Amazon and Gumroad! We are also offering a special free bonus gift of a Dragons Are Real Inspiration Activity Guide when you purchase your copy of this enchanting picture book.
