Seaper Powers by Kim Cameron
When you take a minute to day dream of a warm, beautiful climate it’s most likely somewhere tropical that you send yourself to. Maybe it’s even St. Thomas? Kim Cameron’s new audio book takes children’s minds to a whole new world with a talking starfish and octopus under the sea in St. Thomas as a diver named Emma sets out in search of mysterious blue pearls. Emma is hired by NOAA to help them with their research to determine the cause for the creation of these mysterious blue pearls. Along her journey, Emma discovers a secret that cannot be found out. If this secret is found it, it might destroy the world. Emma relies on the help of her trusty octopus and starfish friends to help her save the sea.
This is the second book in Kim Cameron’s Seaper Powers series and a great one for kids ages three and up. I really enjoyed the audio book because I was able to sit with my daughter and relax while someone else read the story. I really enjoyed hearing the different voices of each character and the Caribbean music at the end of each chapter. My daughter and I were able to follow along with the PDF version of the book which has fun illustrations to help us picture the characters and scenes. Having traveled to the Caribbean quite a bit, we can definitely relate to this story. You can’t help but think of vacation when you listen to this audio book.
Whether you are in search of a great paperback story for your child for his/her Easter basket, or looking for a bedtime story that you don’t necessarily have to read aloud, you should definitely check out Seaper Powers, The Mystery of the Blue Pearls by Kim Cameron.
About Kim Cameron
Kim Cameron began her career on KHAT TV as a small town reporter after DJ’ing on KRNU. With a journalism degree in hand, she moved to the Washington DC area writing for the Smithsonian Institute. Her career took numerous twists and turns through corporate ladders and organizations, but telling stories was always a passion. She is a proven lyricists with a song catalog of over 65, including a few children’s songs. She wrote her first musical in 2012 while writing for the National Examiner and providing the voice over character for an Asian animation movie.
Kim is a true believer in inspiring and nurturing kids. She teaches vocal lessons to students at the School of Rock and volunteers at the Children’s Hospital, singing at their bedsides.
While on tour in the Caribbean, she met a 12 year old who had a fascination with octopi. This brief encounter inspired the creation of Mr. Octopus, a children’s tune featuring a 7 year old that Kim recently signed to her record label. After completing the song, her co-writer and guitarist, John DePatie, encouraged her to take the song to next level by writing a children’s book using the song as the impetus.
After the story was written, John and Kim thought it would be better told using a live narrator and the incorporation of the song. After months of production, narration, editing, the creation of original musical score and sound effects, the audiobook was completed.
While Kim has had many accomplishments, she and John consider this their biggest feat. Seaper Powers is the first of a series that Kim and John have committed to write and produce.
I recommend purchasing this audio book on iTunes for $6.99, Amazon or Barnes and Noble. You can also purchase the paperback copy for around $12 on Amazon.com so you can follow along.
