Just In Time For Turkey Day... Texas Author's Turkey Tales Challenge Children's Reading and Imagination

Bloomington, Indiana, UNITED STATES

MADISONVILLE, Texas, Oct. 17, 2002 (PRIMEZONE) -- A newly published collection of educational children's stories showcases the writing talents of Madisonville, Texas resident Maggie Stevens. "Tyler, the Texas Turkey: Volumes I and II" (now available from 1stBooks Library) is a series designed to educate and entertain a wide age range of children.

The series is about a Wild Turkey family that spends its days exploring its home state of Texas. The turkeys discover their roots by visiting cities and making friends.

The series depicts the Wild Turkey family in its natural habitat and describes its colorful characteristics such as the "courtship strut." The adventures become more complex as the series progresses. It is the author's hope to challenge a child's reading skills and imagination. It is also the author's hope to motivate children to explore their own states in search of "who they are." Knowing and liking oneself is the key to self-esteem. And, it is the author's belief that self-esteem is the key to getting along with others.

The Tyler Turkey series is written in verse for a child's listening enjoyment as well as their primary reading education. Each child who purchases a book receives a sticker that automatically gives him/her membership in Tyler's "Learn About You Club." The Learn About You Club meets every month at www.tylerthetexasturkey.com, to learn about Tyler's latest adventures and to participate in a few simple activities.

The Insider's System for Writers in North Hollywood, California, says, "Tyler the Texas Turkey (is) a delight to read and should become a favorite series for children, from toddlers to school age ... The educational parts never interfere with the fun and adventure... ."
