Author Patricia Youngs is launching a new marketing campaign for her Trafford Publishing Gold Seal award-winning book, “MATT R. ROCKS: A Story That Matters” (published by Trafford Publishing).

Matt R. is a rock who wants to learn to swim. He embarks on an adventure with Captain Higgs and a crew of other rocks on the ship Leader. Together, they learn to build themselves up to form a vast island of resources. Cracking themselves up, the rocks become alive with curiosity and joy. And Matt R. finally learns to swim.

A book dedicated to the discovery of learning, “MATT R. ROCKS” offers a note to parents and teachers at the end, explaining the scientific lessons on matter, the Higgs boson and particle physics that come into play throughout the story.

Praise for “MATT R. ROCKS”:

“From the days when the ancient Sumerians chiseled out The Epic of Gilgamesh in cuneiform, to modern times when writers and animators at Pixar or Dreamworks put the final touches on their latest blockbuster, people have searched for inventive and entertaining ways to teach social mores and viewpoints to others, especially the young. In keeping with this time-honored tradition, the author has crafted a book designed to teach the importance of working together while also subtly introducing little children to the rather heavy concepts associated with particle physics.”
— John E. Roper, The U.S. Review of Books
