Captain Bubby’s IsLAND Tours takes Author out for her Next Book

With Sanibel and Captiva Islands being one of the top tourist destination in the world, there are many guides out there highlighting the attractions the area brings. But there will be a guide about the islands and its surrounding areas which will appease to all ages, which is highlighted by interesting graphics, wonderful photos and strong, precise text which explains each attraction suited for all ages.


Karen Bartlett is the Publisher/Adventurer in Chief of Mostly Kids Guides and her next project will feature Sanibel and Captiva Islands, along with the surrounding area’s attractions. Bartlett’s first guide featured the Naples and Marco Island area and it was well received for its colorful photos and graphics, along with featuring that area’s top attractions. Although the graphics and fun photos are geared towards kids, the “A Mostly Kids’ Guide to Naples, Marco Island & The Everglades”, parents or grandparents are also a target audience and it shows in the versatile guide.

That’s exactly what Bartlett takes genuine pride in when she is writing and working on her guidebooks, the fact her writings are accurate, with a big sprinkle of fun added to the pages in the form of graphics and photos. “It’s not advertising, it’s editorial,” Bartlett said of her work. “These books have something for everyone. There are interesting things for toddlers, for parents who can choose activities for their toddlers and also for the hearing/sight impaired. There is reading for older kids who are 13-plus years of age, too. Bartlett will be working on her Sanibel-Captiva guidebook for the next three months, as she will become a regular visitor gathering information and snapping plenty of energetic photos in the entire area, which will include the barrier islands and Pine Island.

Karen and Bubby share many of the same goals, one of which is the goal to teach, without the kids actually knowing they are learning, because it’s fun. We’re excited to read and see how the author incorporates Captain Bubby’s IsLAND Tours into her new book. It will go into production in October and books will be in shops in January.
