FED Publishing Releases New Book, “The Famous Miller and Smith Detective Agency” by Rachel Joel

The Famous Miller and Smith Detective Agency, by Rachel Joel, takes us deep into a mystery alongside the delightful antics of our pair of pre-teen detectives.

Port Orchard, WA, USA — Rachel Joel’s The Famous Miller and Smith Detective Agency starts of with the quirky relationship of Jenny and Dan and quickly snowballs into a fast-paced who-dun-nit they absolutely must solve to save their loved ones as well as themselves.

I decided to buy this book after a friend recommended it to me. I was surprised and delighted with what I found. The author writes with intelligence, zest and enthusiastic charm. I’m looking forward to reading this book with my kids. I found out that the author is actually very young (a teenager?) and to be honest I was a skeptical about what I would find… and yet I’m not surprised she’s won so many writing awards — this is an up and coming author we need to keep on our radar! ~Sierra November – Amazon Books

Jenny and Dan become detectives for fun, their first case being a recent murder. Soon enough, the two are involved over their heads in finding out who did it as things become more serious than ever. Will they find the killer before he/she strikes again? Will they figure out whom to trust? Can their friendship stand the test? And, most importantly, will they come out alive enough to tell the tale?

Author Rachel Joel took to writing stories at the early age of 8. She loves to read adventure books and write action-filled stories. She wrote this book during her free time in sixth grade, publishing it a year later. Rachel has won several awards (such as an award in the Duke TIP writing contest conducted by Duke University, several times in the PTA Reflections contests, and the President’s Award for Educational Excellence) before reaching the seventh grade. She is a member of National Junior Honor Society.

Author, Sybrina Durant’s Pinterest Board Generates New Excitement For Teaching A Child To Tie A Necktie

“Learn To Tie A Tie With The Rabbit And The Fox”, by Sybrina Durant, utilizes the art of teaching by mnemonics. This enchanting book is immediately available at online booksellers worldwide.

League City, Texas, USA (July 15, 2013) — For those who may believe that wearing a tie is becoming obsolete, take a look at the Pinterest board Sybrina Durant has created for her book, Learn To Tie A Tie With The Rabbit And The Fox. It contains hundreds of delightful images of children wearing neckties and provides positive proof that parents are loving the look of dapper little boys. There’s no easier way to teach boys, and their parents, to attain that look, than with this adorable, educational story that illustrates how to tie a tie in a way that even a young child can understand. With this lovely children’s book, not only will a child learn to tie a tie, but parent’s can get a refresher as well.

The book offers an outstanding learning and bonding opportunity for parent and child. It is engaging from the beginning, pulling the reader in, making them want to root for the rabbit. The author strives to make this book entertaining for the entire family, and succeeds! All who read this engaging tale will be captivated by a clever boy remembering the chase between a rabbit and fox that mimics the motions of tying a tie in the basic “school boy knot”, otherwise known as the “four in hand”. Stunning illustrations, by Donna Marie Naval accompany this book. At times it seems the fox and the rabbit will come right off the page. Enchanting, colorful, engaging and filled with learning opportunities, this book comes in English, Spanish, and Tagalog.

Sybrina Durant believes that if a child is taught a skill while young, that lesson will be remembered forever. Whether learning to lace up shoes, knot a necktie or master any other seemingly complicated knot, being taught with stories, pictures and songs, makes recollection easier later in life. This word, image or sound association, formally known as mnemonics, has been used throughout the ages to help people quickly access memories of things they learned in the past. Learn To Tie A Tie With The Rabbit And The Fox, storybook with instructional song, uses all the senses to enhance recall. The song can be heard in all three languages for free at sybrina.com.

This is an excellent book for all ages and is intended to be a fun family activity. It will be enjoyed by anyone who needs to learn to tie a necktie, or not! Even those who may not need to know how to tie a tie will love the illustrations, and the nail biting chase around the woods. Book reviews are available at Amazon and on Pinterest.
