Lord announces new book

Dr. Janet Lord, a local author, announces the publication of her children's book What Every First Grader Should Know... Besides Their ABCs. The book is intended for young children beginning their school experiences and is also of value to other grade levels and ages in teaching and reinforcing habits which make good students.

Retired teacher, counselor and psychologist, Lord is originally from Illinois and now lives in Fairfield Glade. She currently focuses on writing children's books and a newspaper column for families. Her long and varied career with youth prompted her to create a vehicle to help youngsters make a smooth transition into school. Lord is a strong advocate of life-long learning and believes getting children off to a good start is paramount to their ongoing success in life.

By providing an interactive and artistic experience, the book focuses on developing social and interpersonal relationships which can make school more personally and academically rewarding. The adventures of main character Olivia will provide parents, teachers, friends and families an insightful and fun way to encourage and develop youngster's learning.

The book is available at selected local shops, the Art Circle Library and online at Amazon.
