Where I Live: A first geography book for young children in the State of Pennsylvania teaches children about geography in a fun and personal way. Long before Google Earth, Debra wrote the original story in the late 90's for her classroom. Now beautifully illustrated and hardbound, children explore geography beginning high above the earth in a rocket ship where they learn the names of the planets. They then land and discover the oceans, continents, countries, states and cities all they way to their home address. With activities to record their personal information, the book helps build language skills and prepares them to be successful readers, learners and citizens of the world!
About the Author: Debra is a recently retired classroom teacher and reading specialist, a parent, grandparent and Pennsylvania resident. Having spent over 30 years teaching children to read in the Harrisburg area, she saw the need to incorporate geography into her literacy lessons, especially in the primary grades. Confusion over basic geographic terms and lack of knowledge of local geography inspired her to write her original book about the Harrisburg area. She believes it is critical for our youngest children to have a working knowledge of local, state, national, and world geography and an understanding of maps and globes.
