Author Biography

Author Dawn Doig, M.Sc., M.Ed, is the author of 15 children’s picture books on a variety of topics including childhood hearing loss, bullying and forgiveness, dysgraphia, learning English as an additional language, and positive self-image. Some of her books are just plain silly and prone to giggles. She has been blessed with two extremely rewarding careers working with children as an audiologist and as an English as an additional language teacher in different parts of the world including way up north in the Canadian arctic, Kuwait, England, Saudi Arabia, Mongolia, and Cameroon. Dawn has two grown children who live in Canada. She currently resides in Cameroon with her hubby Bruce and two very rambunctious but adorable female kitties. She gets her inspiration for her children’s books from her family, the children she has the pleasure of working with, general life experiences, and her feline friends. Dawn is a passionate baker who loves to share her homemade goodies with others. She is always ready to head out on the next thrilling adventure with Bruce and they never know where the wind will blow them to next. All proceeds from Dawn’s books are currently being donated to help raise the funds to build a new school for the deaf/orphanage in Cameroon, Africa.

Big Shoe Bears and Friends: Counting with Adjectives by Dawn Doig is a fun and interactive learning book that teaches children how to count along with adjectives that are used to describe the Big Shoe Bears and their friends doing various activities. The book is not only about learning to count and learning new adjectives, but will also teach children French and English since it is a bilingual book. Let us join the Big Shoe Bears and their friends and have fun learning new things in an entertaining way.

Counting with Adjectives is perfect to teach children and the illustrations by Dawn Doig add color and life to the book and its characters. Colorful illustrations are always good to have in children's storybooks because they make the book more attractive and appealing and make the concept clear. This is a good book for tutors and parents to use in classrooms and homes to teach children counting and adjectives. Since it is a bilingual book, it reaches out to a wider audience where children learn both English and French. This story will also encourage readers to be well-versed in two languages which will give them an advantage. I enjoyed the author's approach to teaching children numbers. I am sure parents and tutors will also enjoy using this book to introduce youngsters to numbers in an exciting way, thereby making learning entertaining for them.
