Dylan Kirkpatrick holds his creation–a cereal based on our book Rowan of the Wood, part of his school project in 4th grade at Moss Haven.
Dylan chose Rowan of the Wood for his book report and loved the book. He told us that one of his friends asked to borrow it after he finished, read it straight through, and is now bugging him for the sequel Witch on the Water, which Dylan is currently enjoying. Now, four more of his friends are in line to read Rowan of the Wood! Here’s hoping they get tired of waiting and buy their own copy!
Part of the book report was an oral presentation, and the other part was to create a cereal based on the book. Dylan created Rowan of the Crisp. On the back of the box is a maze game so you can help Cullen navigate through the redwood forest to find the wand while you enjoy your delicious bowl of Rowan of the Crisp. The free toy surprise inside the cereal box is a magic wand! See it sticking out of the top? That one was hand-carved by co-author, Ethan Rose.
This entire story has inspired me to reach out to middle grade teachers and librarians. Author Christine Rose would like to send classrooms and libraries a free copy of Rowan of the Wood along with some lesson plans so they can incorporate it into their curriculum. So, if you are a teacher, librarian, or educator, please don’t hesitate to contact us for your free copy to share with your class. If you choose to buy a set for your classroom, you will get an educational bulk discount.
We love to hear that children of all ages enjoy Rowan of the Wood. Perhaps the series has a new life ahead just in time for the fifth and final book, Spirit of the Otherworld, to be released later this year.
