"I propose we do more than just love our kids to the moon and back. Let's love them deep into outer space and far below the ocean's surface by helping them SEE, FEEL, AND DISCOVER what is possible."
Did You Know That...
your child’s future career will most likely require STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) skills?
Whether you are a Science Dreamer or a Science Screamer (eek—a frog!), you have the ability to guide your child toward success in a science-rich future.
Written by a professional science educator, and fellow parent, this book is chock-full of tips and insights to Chart Your Family’s Course for science learning.
Quotes from the author’s young son, such as, “Mom. I love you. But why are we doing this?” (said while sticking LEDs into playdough at 7:30 a.m.) make this a highly-entertaining expedition.

Wonder as Your Compass!
Wonder is My Compass is the scientific field guide parents didn't know they needed.

“Your book has incredible timing…[i]t came out before the pandemic, but it’s all the more relevant now that parents are having to take their child or children’s education into their own hands. So, I think it’s all the more useful now to realize that we, as parents, can empower ourselves to be the educators of our children.”

Wonder Is My Compass speaks to the heart, mind, and soul of every parent wanting to raise a creative and critical thinker and overall good human.

Wonder is my compass is the book every parent should be reading. Jayme makes science inviting, accessible, and a grand family adventure. You can’t help but be swept up in her relatable and humorous stories. And, the activities she suggests for inspiring wonder can be done regardless of time or budget. You will “wonder” why you didn’t read this sooner!

Book Signing in Maui
Thank you to Maui Ocean Center for allowing me to come back "home" and re-connect with the staff, guests, and marine life. I was very grateful to have the opportunity to dive in the Open Ocean exhibit afterwards. Connecting with young visitors from the other side of the glass is so deeply rewarding!
