Children’s author Mary Jane Huckleberry continues to enthrall young readers with her picture book series, The Adventures of the Prairie-Paxton Family. Huckleberry was inspired to write by her desire to nurture future generations and pass on wholesome life values through her work.
Each of Huckleberry’s four books teaches a key lesson about interacting with others and the world. In The Lesson, children will explore the concepts of honesty and respecting the people around them. Guilty Stomach is about listening and being open to new ideas. Haunted Hole includes themes of respecting personal property. Lastly, Tough Decisions teaches readers about the importance of hard work, selflessness, and responsibility.
Fans of The Berenstain Bears will enjoy Huckleberry’s fun, accessible stories and colorful illustrations. In readings, children connect easily with the characters and themes, leading them to engage by asking follow-up questions. The Adventures of the Prairie-Paxton Family is an enjoyable way to introduce morality and thoughtfulness to elementary-age readers.
In writing The Adventures of the Prairie-Paxton Family, Huckleberry drew upon her own experiences as a mother and grandmother searching for books that emphasized strong morals, hard work, and compassion. Parents, guardians, and anyone with a child in their life will appreciate the educational nature of Huckleberry’s series.
