Ashley Marie, a first-time published children’s book author and a licensed educator currently teaching young children in Thailand, pulled from her educational background, love of books, and teaching experience in multiple countries to create a timeless story, The Little, Big Rescue, that will leave a positive impact on young readers.

Throughout her teaching career, she recognized the importance of children’s books and the vital role they play in the classroom. Ashley Marie developed a beautiful story for young readers that takes them on a wonderful underwater world journey with a very sweet sand crab, Rimmy, and Brenda, a larger than life whale, to show the power of kindness and empathy- and teach readers no matter how big or how small you may be, great things can happen when you believe in yourself.
