Description
When the author, Jack Shoop, delivered his sunflower sprout crop to the grocery stores, employees called him Jack Sprout. Hence the simple beginning of the much loved character, Jack Sprout. Jack Shoop has written a fictional story with an autobiographical essence. Jack Sprout is a farmer in the beautiful high mountain meadow called Beaver Creek Meadow. He started out as a sunflower seed planted in Farmer Smith's sunflower field. From his humble beginnings, Jack Sprout has built his farm and a life with the help and knowledge of his neighbors. They've told him how the meadow was formed and how they've learned to take care of the beautiful meadow, woods, forests, streams, wetlands, prairie and desert they have today. Many of life's lessons are put forth here in a commonsense, logical narrative. Each of the twelve chapters introduces a new character and the environment in which they live. Each chapter is also explored as a teaching opportunity in the Jack Sprout PreK-4 Curriculum available at Jack Sprout. This is an important book for any 7, 8 or 9 year old child. These stories will give them a solid foundation to how nature works and to what is important in life. They'll learn how to work with neighbors and how to have some responsibility for their surroundings. These life lessons will last a lifetime.
About the author
Jack Shoop grew up in rural Iowa in the 1950's and 60's. Neighbors helped each other daily. When he began his own farm in the late 70's growing sunflower sprouts in Oregon, they called him Jack Sprout. This book is where those two worlds connect. He also co-wrote the words and melody for the song "Our Jack Sprout." He is co-creator of the Jack Sprout image and developed the Amazing Lid Poppin' Planting Kit.
