How can children learn about real-life stories?

By Ronald W. Holmes, Ph.D.
Special to the Outlook

Once upon a time, there was a boy named Jacob.  He was very curious about things and often had a lot of dreams. He has dreamt real-life stories about the solar system, careers, numbers, alphabets, continents, animals, birds, and bullying.  Ronald Holmes has captured Jacob’s dreams in a series of books for children ranging from ages 1-10.

In Holmes’ latest book entitled Jacob’s Dream! A Lesson on Flowers and Colors, this book teaches children about eight flowers and the concept of primary, secondary, and tertiary colors. It provides eight colorful illustrations of popular flowers native to countries all over the world. The book intends to capture children’s imagination while developing their ability to learn about different flower species.

Jacob’s Dream is a book that teaches children about eight flowers and the concept of primary, secondary, and tertiary colors.

Children will have an opportunity to reinforce their knowledge of the colors taught by coloring sketches of each flower. It will be especially useful for elementary teachers and home-school parents as they can use the book to create lessons on color, build student awareness of flowers and apply learning to practice.

Just as children learn about fairy tale stories such as The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood and Jack and the Beanstalk, they can also learn about real-life stories through Jacob’s dreams to improve their vocabulary, language skills and reading comprehension.
