My hope is that these stories will give children a head start in learning about people they’ll meet when they begin school and an appreciation of different cultures from around the world.

Reading, writing and arithmetic have been longtime standards for children’s development but in today’s global world it’s become just as important for them to have an understanding of different cultures. JobenExplores.com is a unique site devoted to teaching young children aged 3-6 cultural knowledge and appreciation through a series of online stories.
The stories revolve around Joben, a fun loving alien from the planet Kalom-9. He and his sister Nella visit earth to learn about different countries and their cultures. Joben’s first 5 adventures include visits to Brazil, China, Germany, India & South Africa. All the stories include large colorful illustrations accompanied by text and narration to encourage reading and comprehension.
Samantha Allen, the author, explains the personal motivation behind writing these stories. “My sister is a teacher in a multicultural school. Every day she sees the arguments and teasing that happen when children don’t understand and appreciate classmates who are different. I wrote these stories for my two young nephews after she had to break up a school yard fight that was described as a 'Race War' by the students involved. My hope is that these stories will give children a head start in learning about people they’ll meet when they begin school and an appreciation of different cultures from around the world.”
