Tia Ruff, a nature-loving fourth- and fifth-grade teacher in the Anchorage School District currently pursuing a graduate degree with a concentration in place-based education, has completed her book “There Was Once a Young Ranger Who Swallowed the Sun”: a rhyming tale illustrating the circle of life for school-age children.

Tia wrote this children’s story while teaching her previous students a scientific unit on Alaska’s ecosystems. As a class, they discussed real Alaska food chains and the element of trophic levels. Upon diving into their study, they recognized that there was a lack of story books that properly classified what they were learning. This title has transpired out of that need. Tia wrote this text built on scientific facts in order to better guide her students to a deeper understanding of the lesson that was meant to be learned. She feels this book could be both useful for scientific discovery and fun for all ages. Enjoy!

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Tia Ruff’s book is an educational tool for parents and teachers helping children learn about food chains.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “There Was Once a Young Ranger Who Swallowed the Sun” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
