JODY CAUDURO ... AUSTRALIAN AUTHOR & WRITER

 

 
The Author lives in Wollongong on the east coast of Australia. She grew up in this beautiful area (between the mountains and the sea) before studying to become an Early Years teacher. After cycling and working around the world in her twenties, Jody then settled down to have a family and work in schools, Early Childhood Centres and Tertiary Institutions. 
 
Writing, workshopping and collaborating  to showcase her own stories and other literature provides much enjoyment for Jody.  Writing children's books began as a hobby ten years ago. Her interest lies in creating stories which are uplifting, fun and highlight positive aspects of the world around us. Her first two published books are part of her  'Rainbow Mystery Series': 'The Blue Thief' (2013) and 'While Mandy Waited' (2016).
 
Her latest book, published with Custom Books, is : 'Watching... Wondering' (2018). Jody found Custom Books to be most professional to deal with and would not hesitate to engage in future collaborations.  It was a delight to have Charlotte Shama create her colourful, diverse illustrations, giving life to the characters in the story.

WRITTEN BY JODY CAUDURO

 

This is a story written with the ages of 0 - 5 years in mind. The main aim, however, is for it to be shared in regular cosy reading sessions between adults and children of any age.

The story focuses on Ben, who has recently spent time indoors due to illness, but is now delighted to be outside, watching and wondering about the world around him. His imagination runs wild as he wonders where everyone he sees is going. The beautiful illustrations provide not only  the 'real' destinations of these characters but also the clever connections to Ben's imaginings (which the readers can discover for themselves).

 

A favourite quote of Jody's is from W.B. Yeats. 'The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.' She hopes 'Watching...Wondering' will assist in making this happen.

An added bonus of this book is that there are blank pages at the back of the story, available for the readers to draw or paint their own imaginings, to add to Ben's.
'Watching...Wondering' allows us all to enjoy a sense of wonder and creativity in our lives.
