You Can Help The Dynamic Fennell Family Promote Black Travel and Literacy By Donating Here

Nationwide -- (Washington, DC) Single black mother and educator, Jennaye Fennell and her 3 entrepreneurial children created Fennell Adventures in 2017. Jiyah 16, Jace 12, and Merl 11 years old have written an entire unique travel book series. There is no reason for your family to be held back from travel during COVID-19 or for your children to be reading boring books while home. 

Initial travel thought 

One day while in college at the University of Delaware, the professor asked, “Who has traveled?” Jennaye was an inner-city child who had only traveled to Disney World once. She watched all of her Caucasian classmates describe all of their extraordinary destinations and vowed to make change with her own children. 

Travel Bug Addiction 

Years later when Jiyah was just 4 years old and Jace was a baby, Jennaye took them to the happiest place on earth, Disney World. The family had so much fun and created so many memories they returned twice within the next 6 months.

Soon followed by a cruise to the Caribbean Islands and various places such as Hawaii, Spain, Alaska, and now 31 states. As the family traveled, the kids noticed something.

Merl asked, “Mom, how come there are not many black people on the trips we go on?” This is one of the reasons at 9 years old, Jace started writing travel books.

Jiyah, Jace, and Merl want kids to enjoy reading and to be exposed to different places beyond where they live. By writing books for kids by kids about black family travel, the Fennell’s are changing the narrative. They are fully aware of how traveling and reading can enrich one’s life, especially children. The Fennell family has a goal to complete all 50 states and will write books and create animations to capture their adventures to uplift and inspire others.  Discover how to support their efforts click here

Currently there are 5 travel books in the Fennell Adventures series and 1 animation on their YouTube channel.  The books are: 

Journey through Hawaii with Jace, Journey through Texas with Merl, Journey through New Orleans with Merl, Journey through Cuba with Jace, Journey through Atlanta with Jiyah 

All of the books will help your child learn and travel while being homeschooled during COVID. Your child can learn about culture, geography, language, food, and learning concepts while choosing the order of each book. Each book is unique because the reader decides the path and can be read over 25 different ways.  Jiyah, Jace, and Merl want to expand the selection in the series to include the Midwest, Orlando, and the DMV area. With your contribution to their Kickstarter campaign your children can travel and learn at home during virtual learning. They will also be able to watch the Fennell Adventures brand new animation.  Please support and share to make this expansion possible and to offer your children an even broader selection.
