LEARNING TO PERSEVERE

Visit the Okefenokee for a lesson in pursuing goals.

The Okefenokee Swamp is home to water lilies and alligators, cinnamon ferns and coachwhip snakes, swamp iris and purple gallinules. It is also home to a green treefrog named Jackson, who has learned that a new brochure is being prepared to draw tourists to the famed wildlife refuge and all its beautiful and beastly inhabitants.

Jackson is determined that the diminutive treefrogs will not be left out, and he has a plan.

Author Linda Talley’s story tells a comic tale of perseverance in the face of obstacles. It takes Jackson on a madcap photo shoot that is also a tour of the three habitats of Okefenokee-the swampy woods, the piney woods, and the sun-drenched marshlands-all captured by artist Andra Chase in glowing watercolor illustrations.

Not all problems have easy or speedy solutions. The persistent Jackson demonstrates for young people the rewards of making a plan and sticking with it.

A SURPRISE and added bonus is the “Enrichment Information” which includes lots of facts about The flora and fauna of The Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia, such as the Pine Trees, the Pileated Woodpecker, the Green Treefrog, the Coachwhip Snake, the Pitcher Plant, the Water Lily, the Purple Gallinule, the Spanish Moss, the Baldcypress, the Alligator, the Florida Cooters…and the People in the Okefenokee. This is fascinating detail that did not make it into the story itself, but is very rich in interesting description.

A second big plus is the “Letter to Parents and Educators” which includes many relevant questions and comments to facilitate conversation with young readers about the message of the story…the value of perseverance. So even though on the surface this is just an engaging story for children, it is also truly helpful in a real way.
