Meet author Karen Tyrrell and the fifth exciting Song Bird Superhero adventure: Drought Rescue – #readilearn

Today it is my pleasure to reintroduce you to Karen Tyrrell with the fifth of her books in the Song Bird Superhero series. Each of the books in the series encourages children to believe in themselves and their ability to make a positive difference.

In each adventure, Song Bird tackles a problem facing a different environment and empowers children with knowledge they can use to protect our precious world.

With World Environment Day occurring tomorrow on 5 June, Karen couldn’t have picked a better time to launch her book.

    This is such a great book series by Karen Tyrrell, helping young learners find more about the challenges facing the environment and showing them some ways to care for nature around us. I also like that Karen’s boks empowers children to connect with their superheroes. All of us have our own skills and are capable to stand up to others who put us down, and develop our potential. A bit of determination can go a long way when it comes to working together and figuring things out. It is thoughtful of Karen to explain drought and suggestions on saving water, and saving water skills can be fun for a project or brainstorm session in the classroom. Thanks for sharing, Norah 🙂

                I was okay through the wild weather. Some close to me had no power for a couple of days – bit nervy few days but they have power now, all good. Thanks, Norah. Hope you are enjoying the pleasant weather up there 🙂

        Thank you, Karen. I was an elementary teacher for 31 years, and I thoroughly understand that writing is another avenue for us retired teachers to continue to pass on lessons to children.
