Thursday Family and Recreation Edition

Thursday Family and Recreation Edition

"Without kids being aware of it, the book teaches languages skills, reading skills, and it also teaches geography, science and conservation."

- Lisa Moody, Author and Songwriter

[Education]  This Interactive Picture Book Immerses Young Readers into the Borean Forest
Laura Paquette, laura.paquette@srqme.com

What if a picture book could harness the power of technology and music to transport readers from their cozy armchair to the forests of Borneo, where orangutans roam? In her new children’s book, I am an Orangutan, author/songwriter Lisa Moody combines the magic of storytelling, songs and QR codes to share the story of Putra, a young orangutan who becomes separated from his mother in the Borean forest and must rely on his instincts and lessons passed down through his family to survive, and hopefully be reunited with his mother.

Moody worked for many years as a television writer, focusing on wildlife and conservation programming for outlets like the Discovery Channel. She has written and produced for Jack Hanna’s beloved programs, which aired in 65 countries. She also won an Emmy for her work on Saving a Species: The Great Penguin Rescue. For 11 years, she worked at the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota. This Saturday, April 27 from 10am to 1pm, she’s celebrating the launch of her book, I am an Orangutan, at Bookstore1Sarasota’s Local Author Book Fair. “Most of my programming centered around animals and wildlife, which is what I love so much,” she says. “When I decided to write some educational music, I decided to focus it on animals and their habitats to try to bring awareness to animal conservation messaging.”

Moody has written 25 songs, available on streaming, that help children learn about different animals. “When I wrote this series of songs, the first song I wrote was ‘I am an Orangutan.’ When I decided to write the first book, I got some input from people on what they liked from my music. Even though ‘I am an Orangutan’ was one of the first songs I wrote, it was still one of their favorites. I also knew that I’d be able to work with local zoos to film the orangutans, so it was an animal that I knew we would have access to,” she adds. I am an Orangutan represents Moody’s collaboration with Ringling College alumn and illustrator Mikaela San Pietro on their DittyZoo books project. Embedded into the illustrations on the book’s pages are QR codes, which young readers can scan to see a fun fact about orangutans appear on their device. At the end of the story, a final QR code links to a sing-along music video of the ‘I am an Orangutan’ song, as well as real-life orangutans. Readers can enjoy fun bonus activities like crossword puzzles and coloring pages, located on the DittyZoo website, to continue the adventure.

“Without kids being aware of it, the book teaches languages skills, reading skills, and it also teaches geography, science and conservation,” Moody says. “The majority of the whole collection of songs are written with musical styles, instruments and rhythyms that are indigenous to where the animals are from, so it also introduces kids to different musical styles and instruments.”

To learn more about DittyZoo and purchase I am an Orangutan, visit dittyzootoonz.com. The Local Author Book Fair will be held from 10am to 1pm at Bookstore1Sarasota, 117 S. Pineapple Ave., Sarasota, 941-365-7900, sarasotabooks.com.

[Educational Event]  Community Day School Hosts Delegation from Sarasota's Sister City of Tel Mond, Israel

In April, Hershorin Schiff Community Day School hosted 15 Israeli students, along with teachers and parent chaperones, from Sarasota's Sister City of Tel Mond. During their visit, the honored guests experienced life here in Sarasota and built upon the past school year's dialogue with the Community Day students, through email, live video chats and WhatsApp texts – in English and Hebrew – and exchanges of stories and photos. The Israeli exchange program was reinvigorated and sponsored through the generosity of the Blumenthal Family Passport to Israel Initiative. One goal of the exchange program – which launched in 2017, with the Tel Mond students coming here – is to create and nurture a vibrant relationship with CDS’s student peers in Israel. The students in both communities have learned about and from each other, as they have answered thought-provoking questions, shared videos and photos, and engaged in spirited conversation. Student connections ranged from typical teenage topics like sports, music, food, and pop culture to more complex topics like faith, family cultural traditions and first-hand experience with politics and perspective on regional conflicts. While here, the Israelis enjoyed home hospitality at households throughout the community. They participated in a wide variety of educational, religious and fun opportunities; some highlights included: a Bradenton Marauders game; visits to area attractions and locations such as Myakka State Park, Art Center Sarasota, Ringling Museum/Ca'd'Zan, Sarasota Art Museum, Embracing Our Differences at Bayfront Park, and TreeUmph Adventure Park; an improv session led by Florida Studio Theatre; shopping at UTC; and social activities such as a beach picnic, cookout pool party, “pizza and popsicles,” and an ice cream social. There were also numerous classroom conversation sessions to facilitate peer discussions on a variety of topics. Prior to their departure, Tel Mond teachers/chaperones Orit Dolev and Anat Moshe wrote, "The connection between the sister cities of Tel Mond and Sarasota is very significant. The kids had a fascinating learning experience featuring the local art and culture combined with fun activities. The families welcomed all the Israeli kids and gave them a sense of home. We truly appreciate your kindness and generosity and are looking forward to your visit to Israel next year!" The local students were profoundly affected by the experience. “There are friends and then there are friends that become family,” said Rayana, CDS eighth grader. Avi, a seventh grader, added, “I had no idea how much in common I would have with a stranger. We have bonded so well that all I can think about is next year in Tel Mond!”  School leaders are already in the early stages of planning for next year's student exchange, through which CDS seventh and eighth graders will visit Israel.
