Sadie Sees Trouble is a unique invitation to parents to engage children with the delightful tale of Sadie the Dog as she tries to lure her little girl Penny back into active play around their home. Responding to nationwide calls by educators to reduce
screen time among young children, veteran educators Linda Jarkey and Julie Jarkey-Kozlowski developed this first book in a series of Sadie stories so that it literally opens doors in family literacy.
What doors? Well, first, the doors to your kitchen cabinets! All of the book’s colorful illustrations were produced by arts educator Julie Jarkey-Kozlowski with items typically found in a family’s kitchen. The components are listed at the back of the book, from strawberries to mustard. After reading the story, readers can visit this website to download free black-and-white illustrations of Sadie and Penny to become a lively part of their story.
