About the book
Cami Kangaroo loves stuff. Rocks, shells, feathers, toys...she collects them, sorts them and builds with them. There's only one problem...her room is so messy that it's nearly impossible for her to find things! Will Cami ever be able to figure out how to be more organized? Will she find the missing toy she needs to give back to her cousin? Follow along with Cami in the funny and relatable second book of the "Cami Kangaroo and Wyatt Too" series as she tries to find a way to keep her treasures from taking over her room!
The story behind the story:
Hi! My name is Stacy C. Bauer. I am a wife, mother, teacher and author. I have always loved writing and have been sharing funny stories about my own children for years. 2 years ago, I took a leave from my career as a teacher and decided to write a book. I ran a successful kickstarter a year ago and was able to publish my first book Cami Kangaroo Has Too Many Sweets, a book based on my daughter Cami and her quest to sneak and eat every treat she could get her hands on. It also tells of the consequences she faced as a result of that. This was the first book in my series about my children, Cami and Wyatt: "Cami Kangaroo and Wyatt Too". Here are some of the exciting things that have happened with that book since then:
Cami Kangaroo Has Too Many Sweets was released In May. With 112 reviews on Amazon, here are some of the things readers had to say:
"This book is deliciously, sugary sweet!" - Ginger Mom and the Kindle Quest
"Beautiful illustrations and colorful pages." - Julia (Fab Working Mom Life)
"A happy story with a great message!" - Crystal (teacher and mom)
Last summer, I started working on the second book in the series: "Cami Kangaroo Has Too Much Stuff". I chose this subject, because I figured there were other children out there who have trouble with too much stuff and staying organized, just like my daughter Cami does.
We've already been busy promoting the new book!
Cami and I were on the local news a few weeks ago. Watch the video here.
I was featured in the newspaper last week:
It has been my dream to become a published author for a long time. Last year, I realized that dream because of your support. I would love to continue my series with this book and can't wait to see what I can do with this next book! My family and I are so grateful for your interest and support!
