Why I Started Writing

My name is Dounia Stewart-McMeel and I have always loved reading and telling stories. After having kids, I began to write them down. 

Being an ex-tutor with a love of science and history, a lot of these stories were non-fiction to teach my kids about their world. I soon learned that toddlers hate essays, so had to make the stories lots of fun! And thus, Learning Excitement was born. 

My Mission

I am writing a whole range of science books for young kids with an element of fun, to help them develop a passion for science. 

My reason for writing is to inspire and teach, which is why I chose the name Learning Excitement. 

Learning needs to be exciting, conveying wonder and fun.
