The Rockport Rotary is extending our literacy projects to include second graders. We will be reading to the second graders attending ACISD Live Oak Learning Center. The book is Andy & Elmer's Apple Dumpling Adventure.
Andy & Elmer’s Apple Dumpling Adventure is the story of a young entrepreneur who starts an apple dumpling business. Along the way it teaches and illustrates the Four-Way Test.
With the guidance of a mysterious voice, conveying the Four-Way Test, he turns his venture into a wonderful success and makes friends along the way.
The story was written and illustrated by Andrew J. Shoup, a local children’s book author and illustrator. And the book is jointly published by the Rotary Club of Fairborn and TokoBooks.
Each classroom will keep the hardback edition for their classroom library. Each student will get a paperback copy, and activity book and a bookmark for their personal library. Each teacher will get a lesson plan for future use of the book.
