The Lazy Dog and the Quick Fox: An Action Maze Adventure by Rebecca Rose Orton

I was compensated via Fiverr for sharing this post. I only share those books that I think will interest my readers. Affiliate links contained within.



The Lazy Dog and the Quick Fox


Children will delight in this action maze adventure based on the English pangram, "The quick sly fox jumps over the lazy brown dog." This pangram is used as a basis for extrapolating the story plots in this book. Children can make choices on how they want the story to unfold. Emotional intelligence points are awarded based on their choices. Parents will appreciate the emotional intelligence score scale focusing on friendship at the end of the book. 

One good example of an action maze adventure was showcased in the movie "Big" with Tom Hanks as the leading star. There was a scene in a boardroom at MacMillan Toy Company where the adult Josh and Susan presented a proposal for a computerized version of an action maze adventure, a story format that has existed in paperback form in real life for ages prior to this movie's debut. It is ironic that the author has done the opposite, first by composing an action maze adventure in an online blog, and then converting it into a book.

About Rebecca Rose Orton


Ms. Rebecca Rose Orton, otherwise known simply as Reba Orton, was born Deaf. She attended Cornell College with its intensive one class a month schedule for the freshman year and by the end of the academic year, she was taking computer science classes that juniors usually took. However, for the rest of her college years at the University of Northern Iowa, she wisely kept a healthy balance between general education and major courses every semester because switching between subjects while studying was equivalent to getting a mental break.

When she completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Computer Science in May, 1990, she had completed every course for her major in the university catalog except one. That one class was Project Management and she never registered for it because she feared that she would not be able to interact with her hearing teammates on an assigned project that they would work on together for the entire semester. 

After she graduated, she worked for seven years as a COBOL computer programmer in the aerospace and insurance industries. During her lifetime, she took pride in having studied or worked with many computer languages such as ADA, ANSI COBOL, C+, BASIC, COBOL II, FORTRAN 77, HTML, Icon, LISP, MicroFocus COBOL, Pascal, PDP-11 assembly language, Perl, QBASIC, Turbo Pascal, and Visual Basic Applications (VBA). It is quite logical to think of computer languages as constructed languages, and indeed, a linguistics class covering government and binding theories had a familiar programmatic writing style in its textbook. 

She was one of the only two people who got top grades in this class at Gallaudet University. She graduated from Gallaudet University in May, 2000 with a Master of Arts degree in Linguistics with a specialization in non-manual signals (e.g. facial expressions used in American Sign Language grammar). She worked part-time as a tutor for about fifteen years after she graduated. While tutoring students with business administration majors and other related fields, she found that she had a penchant for business, just like her father. She took a Management and Organizational Theory class at the University of Maryland University College in Fall, 2006. She got the top score for her final exam. To finally complete that one project management class that she did not take for her undergraduate degree, she took a Project Management for Beginners professional development class in July, 2009 at Gallaudet University in a fully accessible classroom with peers who all communicated in American Sign Language. It was effortless to team up with classmates for project management assignments!

10 Little Black Birds by Amy Elizabeth Mortensen


10 Little Black Birds


Children love to learn, especially if it is fun. This book will help develop counting skills.

Why is learning how to count important? It is the foundation for math. Numbers and counting are the first math concepts children learn. Both are needed before children can learn to solve simple math equations.

The 10 Little Black Birds book helps a child learn to count from 10 to 0. Hand actions were included to aid with learning.

This book is suitable for preschoolers and kindergartners

Excerpt:
10 little black birds sitting on a wire. 
Up came a gust of wind and one flew away. 
9 little black birds sitting on a wire. 
Up came a gust of wind and one flew away.
