Read about the creators of AIR
We have been collaborating in creative projects for over nine years. As teachers, we are passionate about education and the emotional and social development of children. As writers, we are passionate about storytelling and entertainment. We created Adventures in Reading to bring these important tools together. Our stories are informed by our own enthusiasm for life and learning!
