Elisabeth Davis-Karam is an American who has been living in Lebanon since 1999. She has been writing young children’s books for over 12 years and served as a English Coordinator at Antonine Sister’s School in Ghazir, Lebanon during that time. She worked with children ages 3-7 and authored books for the same age bracket. She is best know for “On the Road to Reading”. These books are a series of leveled readers for children between the ages of 5 and 7. They encourage independent reading and boost decoding confidence. There is a Kindergarten pack of 8 books which mainly address the short vowel sounds. Both the First and Second Grade packs consist of 8 books each targeting increasingly difficult phonetic rules. Elisabeth also wrote “Enchanting Stories”, a volume of narratives meant to encourage listening skills and promote comprehension. The stories are rich and exciting for young children with an age-appropriate moral at the end of each tale.
Elisabeth studied at Notre Dame University in Zouk Mosbeh, Lebanon, obtaining a B.A. degree in Educational Psychology. She also possesses a B.S. Degree in International Business from San Jose State University in California.
