After reading many children's books, he felt compelled to write a children's book series that was fun to read and educational. He has traveled extensively in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean and Western Europe and plans to highlight some of these places in future books in the series. Jonathan (Jon) Shaw (www.yehonatan-art.com) is a full time Artist/Designer/Illustrator.
