PHILADELPHIA, February 18, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Looking for a book to read to your child or students for Earth Day? “Paddy’s Forest Trek” written by Patti Gill is an engaging and informative narrative nonfiction story about a young porcupine and his friend who spend a fun-filled day on a forest adventure, learning fascinating information about trees. The characters develop a genuine friendship as they pursue their quest.
This book is targeted for ages 5-8 or children in pre-kindergarten to second grade. This book creatively introduces scientific concepts about plants and plant growth. The question and answer format along with specific kid-friendly vocabulary is seamless to allow essential information to be delivered in a concise manner to enhance comprehension.
Author Patti Gill strategically formulated this book around the current academic status among elementary schools in both urban and suburban districts. She said, “Due to testing pressures, schools rarely have time to go in-depth at the elementary level with necessary science and history content critical for helping students to become proficient readers. I wanted to provide parents and teachers with a creative solution on how to build background core knowledge, while exposing children to domain-specific language.”
“Paddy’s Forest Trek” is the first book in the new upcoming narrative nonfictional series where Paddy will take adventures around the globe and throughout time learning about different informational topics. The new book, released on Aug. 31, 2017, can be purchased on Amazon, Litfire.com and online at Barnes & Noble.
