Children's Books

The Child—Our Greatest Treasure


Earle's stories are about children and their adventures—about how children observe with open, innocent minds. The stories are written for children and those with childlike curiosity.

Children will learn to learn from their adventures and observations if mature minds pay respect to their questions. Curiosity and discovery assist every child into tomorrow, and we must be there for them as long as we are alive.

Although the children's books are not available through this Web site at the present time; a number of the books are described below. For more information, please contact Earle Florence by E-mail.

Thoughts of a Silly Kid

A child's experience with science.

A boy awakens to the early morning rays of the sun—announcing a new day and an opportunity for new adventures. Once outside, alone, he wonders and questions how things work. And, he "stores up" a memory bag of questions to ask.

Although he doesn't realize it, he will use Questions all of his Life—to learn.
