An invitation to Thomas Jefferson’s birthday party at Monticello is the focus of the current story on the World Heritage Pointer website, http://www.WorldHeritagePointer.com.
Children join Sonya, a curious bird dog that travels to World Heritage Sites, at Monticello, Jefferson’s plantation home.
To get a birthday invitation, Sonya and her young readers participate in the "Jefferson Facts Treasure Hunt." The rules are simple:
1. Gather facts by reading each episode of the adventure story, Patriot Dog.
2. Answer the nine questions (three per episode) correctly.
3. Email the answers to Sonya.
Youngsters can ask their parents, grandparents or friends to assist them. They can also email Sonya for additional clues.
"The Jefferson Facts Treasure Hunt adds an extra element of fun and adventure to the current World Heritage Pointer story, Patriot Dog," said the website publisher, Rose Muenker, an award-winning travel writer. "Hunting for answers turns reading and learning into an entertaining puzzle."
Young readers who email all the correct answers will receive invitations to the fictional birthday party. Patriot Dog episodes run through May.
Patriot Dog explores Monticello and the University of Virginia at Charlottesville, which form one of the 812 World Heritage Sites designated by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Thomas Jefferson built Monticello as his personal residence. He also founded and designed the University of Virginia. Jefferson was born on April 13, 1743.
