Stella's Stories from around the Globe
Japan 日本
by Sheri Burke

Stella’s Stories from around the Globe: Japan is a colourful account of a seven-year-old’s trip to Japan. Part children’s travel-guide and part travel diary, Stella’s Stories looks to inspire other children interested in geography, cultures, languages, foods, and traditions beyond their own. It invites juvenile readers to follow along with Stella on her travels with the hope of making them more trip savvy and reinforcing basic travel-related skills along the way. The Japan trip is the first in a Stella’s Stories series that follow this energetic and curious globetrotter around the world—and invites other children along for the ride.

"Stella’s Stories from Around the Globe: Japan" is an excellent read for kids and adults alike! For any little (or big!) adventurer this is a fun guide to travelling. It offers practical information about what to expect and how to prepare for a trip. It also highlights some fun cultural activities and insight about a new country. I like that it is told from a kid’s perspective. I feel that sometimes travel is something that parents think kids need to do when they are older. This is simply not true and this book can inspire anyone of any age to get that travel bug! And even if you’re not a traveller, this book offers a peek inside of a different culture. I can’t wait to see where Stella goes next!" —Sara Dickhout, Expressive Arts Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist "Stella's Stories from Around the Globe – Japan" is a fun, educational way to engage young children about new cultures. The information woven into Stella’s adventure is practical. Though designed for a younger audience, I learnt a lot about Japan. As a father of two daughters, I would strongly recommend this to parents with young children who are interested in the world, enjoy learning about other cultures or plan to travel to Japan. I look forward to the next book in the series. " —Chris Dudley, Director Entrepreneurship, Seneca College

Sheri has travelled extensively. She’s been to Tasmania, southern Africa, Europe, and Asia. She’s studied in Perth, Western Australia, and completed a study-abroad session in Jaipur, India. She also taught briefly in London and extensively in Montreal, Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. There are still many places she’d love to go, and, since her daughter Stella’s birth, she’s accompanied her parents on many adventures. Stella has already lived several years in a remote village in the Canadian Arctic and spent time in Europe and Japan. Her mother’s goal is to have her continue to travel with her and continue to co-write books about the places they visit so other children can experience them, too. Sheri has a BEd., BSc and an MSc, the latter in physical geography. She’s always had an interest in landscapes, countries, and other cultures. Some of her best experiences have come through travel and she wants to open that world to young readers and encourage them to explore. Along with globetrotting, Sheri enjoys photography, skiing, hiking, and art. Sheri and Stella live in Niagara where they both continue to take Japanese lessons. Stella has a hamster and a cat named “Daisy” and is looking forward to getting a dog.
