A Journey from Embryo to Koala
by Kasia Pintscher

How are koalas born? Do they grow up just like me or you? Find out all about the life cycle of the koala in this fascinating nonfiction book for young readers. Dozy, A Journey from Embryo to Koala takes children on a journey to explore the life cycle of a koala, from embryo, to joey, to adult. Along the way, kids learn all kinds of fun koala facts, and are invited to use actions with interactive prompts like pulling down a branch and tickling the top of Dozy’s head. This STEM-focused story helps readers learn to count and make smart food decisions. The story is interactive, educational, and fun, targeted to children seven years old and under. Dozy, A Journey from Embryo to Koala is the second book of the Life Cycle Series. The first book in the series, Little Bark, A Journey from Egg to Frog, is about the life cycle of a frog. Educators, parents, and other guardians can use this series to teach children about science and the animal kingdom using a STEM-focused interactive platform. Its interactive narrative encourages children to participate in the learning process, while the different animals they meet along the way makes the series fun as well as educational.

Kasia Pintscher is the author of Little Bark, A Journey from Egg to Frog. She started this series during the COVID-19 lockdown, when her two daughters were at home, away from school. She wanted to ensure their growing brains were stimulated and engaged. She researched, compiled information, and pulled it into a cohesive lesson plan that included reading, writing, math, science, and art, along with reading circles. The easiest and friendliest way to incorporate those lessons was to create a story with an interactive narrative. It was so successful that she saw its use as a learning tool for other parents and educators, and the Life Cycle Series was born. Kasia is a mother to two smart and charming daughters. She is an animal lover, and a reading and writing enthusiast. Kasia’s home is in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, where she lives with her partner and their two daughters. The family has a cat, a frog, a beta fish, and a tank full of colourful dwarf shrimp.
