(PRWEB) November 16, 2011
Janie Lancaster's titles, Julie & The Lost Fairy Tale, Julie & The Lost Fairy Tale—Teacher’s Edition, Edwina Beena’s Polka Dot Day, Edwina Bina Y El Día De Las Bolitas and When Silence Reigns—Help Yourself Through Expressive/Therapeutic Writing are now available in iTunes bookstores in 32 countries.
Julie & The Lost Fairy Tale is a story that has been embraced by Newspapers In Education nationwide for ages 8-14. This 15 chapter story was submitted by the Erie Times News for the excellence in literacy award in 2006 and loved by students and teachers, including those who work with special needs kids. Drawings and historical photographs in full color along with curriculum based teacher’s lesson plans included in the teacher’s edition will enhance classroom instruction.
Edwina Beena’s Polka Dot Day is for K-2nd grade teachers and available in English and Spanish. This iBook is an example of what an epub3 format can do for a picture book because it combines the wonders of modern technology with one of the most effective ways to educate our children—reading the written page. Young readers can use their tiny fingers like a magnifying glass on the iPad to explore a delightful polka dot world. Activities posted on the iTunes page can be incorporated in classrooms to stimulate the imaginations of children as well as support classroom curriculum.
School councilors and teachers will find Janie’s new iBook, When Silence Reigns—Help Yourself Through Expressive/Therapeutic Writing, a valuable tool in dealing with the cumulative traumas we all must face in today’s troubled world. Inside the book are writing samples charts as well as therapeutic poetry that can be used to stimulate expressive/therapeutic writing in yourself or in others. Readers will benefit from an in-depth understanding of an injured mind and yet enjoy the simplicity of uncluttered information in Janie’s book.
News media are welcome to use pictures and information on Janie’s website. Janie Lancaster is also available for interviews. Her books will soon be available for other e-readers.
