Elmhurst, IL, January 14, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Poet, author and teacher Nancy Sack announced today the release of Puppies and Poems, published by Outskirts Press. In this richly illustrated, full color casebound book, Sack has created two rambunctious and endearing pups who will delight pre-school age children with their playful adventures.
One assertive, but otherwise perfect poodle leads her best friend, a messy, lovable mutt, through a spree of spirited play in a series of individual poems sure to engage an audience of one to six- year olds. To accompany Sack’s perky text, illustrator Kaitlyn Fuchs has created two endearing puppies children will adore.
No stranger to the written word, author Sack had her first book published in 2010, a collection of adult poetry and prose entitled Musing along the Ike, and she teaches English and English as a Second Language at Schaumburg High School in Illinois. Her poems and prose have been published in national anthologies and literary magazines, and she has been inducted into the International library of Poetry for Outstanding Achievement in Poetry.
Musing along the Ike has been approved to be taught as a supplemental text in the largest high school district in Illinois, District 211.
Sack has also completed the text for three more books in this series: Puppies Go Green, Puppies Go West and Puppies Go Abroad.
Puppies and Poems is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
