STUDY GUIDE: A Special Project
by Flint Hills Publishing Author, Emil Cicogna
A note from FHP President, Thea Rademacher:
"After reading Reyna Bradford’s book In My Hands, Stories of the Land and Animals I Love but Can’t See, and then meeting her in person, Emil Cicogna was inspired to create this e-book study guide to accompany Reyna’s book.
I’m fortunate to work with both of these authors, two intelligent, hard-working people that in different ways, seek the same goal: sharing inspirational stories and information that will make the world a better place.
A useful teaching tool, the study guide goes through individual chapters and includes objectives, student research prompts, characterizations, themes, key vocabulary words, and critical thinking questions. Emil designed the Guide as a tool for parents and children to work through together, to check the website links for additional content, and to go over the vocabulary words in the context of Reyna’s book."
