25 Jan Pack-n-Go Girls Donate Books
Pack-n-Go Girls® Releases new book and donates classroom set to Multicultural Children’s Book Day and a local school
Colorado Springs, Co, January 25, 2020 — Little girls dream of true-blue friends, mysterious adventures, and far away places. In the eleventh book of the Pack-n-Go Girls® Adventures, Mystery of the Naga at Night, author Lisa Travis takes the readers there. In this case, “there” is Thailand, where 9-year-old Jess Johnson travels back to visit with 9-year-old Nong May Wattana. In this second book of the Thailand series, something creeps by Jess’ window in a Thai hill tribe village. Whatever it is sounds close enough to touch. The wind blows. Pebbles scatter. A shadow slithers though the moonlight. What is this mysterious creature doing slipping into the jungle every night? Jess and Nong May are determined to find out.
The Advanced Readers Edition was launched in November at The American Association of School Librarians national conference in Louisville, KY. Now, WorldTrek Publishing and Pack-n-Go Girls are celebrating its public release with a donation of 50 books to Multicultural Children’s Book Day on January 31, 2020.
