Guest Book Review - Eclair Goes Geocaching by Michelle Weidenbenner plus $30 Premium Geocaching Membership / Amazon GC / Paypal Giveaway

Eclair Goes Geocaching

Cover Front - Cover 1 150dpi

When seven-year-old Éclair goes geocaching for the first time, she finds a treasure that isn’t the one she imagined. Young readers will discover what geocaching is all about through Éclair's journey with her eccentric grandma.

This book will be hidden in geocaching sites around the US as a fun read for early readers. My hope is that young readers all over the US will learn what geocaching is through Eclair's antic with Grandma Stella.

Here’s what readers are saying: 

“This heartwarming, educational story will show children that even though things don't always turn out as we expect them to, sometimes they're even better than we could ever have imagined.” Mel Finefrock, Patchwork Poetry. 

“I loved it. The grandma was modern and fun! I liked how Éclair was curious and tender-hearted! Their relationship is touching and realistic!” Cindy Nash, Kindergarten Teacher 

"I love how adventurous Éclair and Stella are! I love geocaching and it was super fun to read about the awesome treasure hunt Stella took Éclair on." Olivia Rattie, 8 years old 

  “Éclair had so much fun geocaching that I would love to do that too. I can’t wait to read about her next adventure.” Katrena Strother, 8 years old 

  “Bored? Need something more exciting? Do what Éclair and Stella did. Try geocaching.” The Simon Mates, avid geocachers

Guest Book Review by Rachel Quial
Éclair Goes Geocaching grabs you from the opening line. The entire feel of the illustrations and basic concept of the design peaks your interest. The feel of the book before you even read the first page is like a nostalgic piece of art that reminds you of books you read as a child. You know, the ones that remain with you until this day? The beauty of the design is enough to get you to want to read this book; the content will definitely surprise you. 

I began reading the book thinking I was going to delve into a world that spoke towards days past but I was so surprised to find that I got what I expected but so much more. The author, Michelle Weidenbenner, did a fabulous job in creating a piece that was both a throwback to the past, where children lived on farms and went hunting in the woods with their adventurous grandmas. Perhaps I’m too much of a city girl to relate to modern day families living on farms so please forgive this review if I am mistaken. Just the feeling of the openness and care that Weidenbenner gave to her characters gave it a vintage feeling. I was pleasantly surprised that she soon introduced the reader to APPs, predominance of cell phones in our daily lives and Global Positioning Systems that are controlled by satellites in space. 

This book is very relevant and I loved sharing it with my children. I look forward to more adventures with Éclair. She expresses the wild, creative spirit that lives in us all and her story is a definite must read.

Also Available Eclair Goes to Stella's
Hi, I’m Éclair and I’m seven. My sister Meggie is two. When mom got sick we had to go live with Stella, my dad’s mom, the one with maroon colored hair. I begged Dad not to make us stay with her because she beat her horse and was going to eat her rooster, but he didn’t believe me. Even after I pretended I was going to barf, he left us with Stella.

So there we were, Meggie and me, on a strange pink farm with a skinny horse, a mean rooster, and Stinky Stella who had a living room filled with dead deer heads.

What would she do to us?

Would we end up on her wall too?

About the Author
Bronze Medal Winner in Dan Poytner's Global eBook Awards.
Winner of the Kindle Book Promotion Awards

Michelle is a fulltime employee of God's kingdom, writing and encouraging writers every day. She's often a sucker for emotional stories, her sensitive side fueling the passion for her character's plights, often giving her the ability to show readers the "other" side of the story.

She grew up in the burbs of Detroit with five brothers. No sisters. Each time her mom brought the boy bundle home from the hospital Michelle cried, certain her mom liked boys better than girls. But when her brothers pitched in with the cooking, cleaning, and babysitting--without drama, Michelle discovered having brothers wasn't so bad. They even taught her how to take direct criticism without flinching, which might come in handy with book reviews. 

Michelle is living her dream--writing every day and thanking God for the stories He puts in her path. When Michelle isn't writing she's winning ugly on the tennis court. She's known as "Queen of the Rim Shots." No joke. It's ugly.

CACHE a PREDATOR is currently hidden in geocaching sites throughout the US. If you'd like to see where there might be a novel hidden in your area, please log in to and search for trackables at IN SCRIBE--that's Michelle.
