Did you know that around 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered by oceans. Ocean tides are caused by the Earth rotating while the Moon and Sun’s gravitational pull acts on ocean water. While there are hundreds of thousands of known marine life forms, there are many that are yet to be discovered, some scientists suggest that there could actually be millions of marine life forms out there. The Pacific Ocean’s name has an original meaning of ‘peaceful sea’, it is the largest ocean on Earth.

Out and about in Sag Harbor, NY. Sag Harbor was settled sometime between 1707 and 1730. While some accounts say it was named for neighboring Sagaponack, New York which at the time was called "Sagg", Sagaponack and Sag Harbor both got their name from a tuber the Metoac Algonquins raised.

May Day — 05/01/2012

May Day —

May 1st, often called May Day, just might have more holidays than any other day of the year. It's a celebration of Spring. It's a day of political protests. It's a neopagan festival, a saint's feast day, and a day for organized labor. In many countries, it is a national holiday.

Unlike most of the other non-foolish holidays, the history of April Fool's Day, sometimes called All Fool's Day, is not totally clear. It is not like Halloween, where despite an interesting history, most people just put on Halloween costumes, get candy, and leave it at that. There really wasn't a "first April Fool's Day" that can be pinpointed on the calendar. Some believe it sort of evolved simultaneously in several cultures at the same time, from celebrations involving the first day of spring.

General information

The first book "The Adventures of Pinky Lee, Passport to Adventure", is the prologue to the two series of Adventures for Pinky Lee. The cover is Pinky Lee’s UK passport; the book will also contain a passport for the child to collect stickers for each book/region. Enclosed at the end of each book that follows Pass Port to Adventure is a code to unlock a sticker on-line to be printed out for the child’s passport. Similar to receiving an exit stamp when leaving a country, a child can collect stamps from around the world. Each sticker will be a passport stamp like the rubber stamp inked impression received in one’s passport upon exiting a country. Simultaneously, with the pass port page on-line there will be flash games and a language widget for the children to further their adventure. The series of books to follow are in the shape of the state, region or country highlighted. The books shape is the political shape of the state, region or country to scale; therefore, when all the books are collected the child can put the puzzle together.

The books are in two series. Each of the 50 states is presented individually or in region for the Continental United States series and all of the countries of the world are broken into regions for the Around the World series.

In the Around the World series, Pinky Lee is paired up with an indigenous animal from the region to show him around the sights, customs and key phrases in the native language. These books are for younger readers who have an easier retention rate for new languages. Their love for collecting cute animals, also ties in with the theme that each book will have a new animal and opens up limitless marketing possibilities.

In the Continental United States the books become first chapter books. There are 27 books an ideal number for a classroom teacher to use. Each week a student would have a different state or region to read about and at the end of the week they can place their piece of the puzzle together on the floor map, thus increasing literacy comprehension and geographic. The passport also helps mark the progress for the teachers and parents as well as boost pride for the child.

As a former classroom teacher and current independent educator, I have created dummy books in small case studies and found the effectiveness as well as the enjoyment the children received from the Adventures of Pinky Lee.
