Bailey & Russell’s Adventures
By: Jeff T. Seymour
About the Book
Through the adorable antics of a pair of puppies, Bailey & Russell’s Adventures, first and foremost, teaches children about safety. It’s also about patriotism and superheroes through the eyes of two dogs.
During their adventures they make friends, and with those friends they learn how to communicate using technology but doing so safely. There is a hidden family element to the book as well. The friends aren’t just other animals but kids as well, therefore they feel the need as superheroes to watch over them. The other hidden part of the story is these dogs were adopted, while not said, it’s insinuated. Their mother is the Lady of the Torch, which is where patriotism begins. The educational elements cover math and history along with some cultural aspects about traditions during various holidays. There are also some elements where different language sentences are used to show the importance of learning to be bilingual as the child pursues growth. In short, it’s a humorous book, fictional and nonfictional in some cases, that shows a kid can be a kid but do so safely while learning about different cultures and different people.
