CHANDLER, AZ (February 2015)—Alligators are certainly fascinating but they do NOT belong in the classroom! Young readers will quickly learn why with the upcoming release of a new children’s book by acclaimed author and presenter Conrad J. Storad. Published by Little Five Star, a division of Five Star Publications, Inc., Gator, Gator, Second Grader (Classroom Pet…or Not?)cleverly compares and contrasts a variety of potential classroom critters, using kid-friendly dialogue and engaging rhymes to help students identify which animals make great classroom pets and which do NOT!

Masterfully crafted for early elementary readers, Gator, Gator, Second Grader leads Mrs. Nichols’ second grade classroom on an impromptu “pet safari,” necessitated when two young boys bring a baby alligator to school in a cardboard box. Mrs. Nichols’ last-minute lesson soon leads to an exuberant naming game, with students clamoring to compare turtles with Gila monsters, hamsters with grizzly bears, and much more. Following the story, a well-researched curriculum guide captivates young readers with an in-depth look at American alligators. “My goal,” explained Storad, “is to help students understand how and why these intimidating, often misunderstood reptiles were rescued from extinction and how the fearsome-looking alligator is actually a gentle parent and a speedy swimmer.”

Definitely entertaining, parents, librarians and teachers can also be confident that Gator, Gator, Second Grader is of great educational value. The award-winning author and editor of more than 50 science and nature-based books for children and young adults, Storad is nationally renowned for his ability to combine fascinating facts withan unforgettable story!
