Local publisher joins with pet program Little Five Star, a division of Chandler-based Five Star Publications Inc., is partnering with Pets in the Classroom and the Pet Care Trust to celebrate the upcoming release of its newest science-based children’s book, “Gator, Gator, Second Grader (Classroom Pet…Or Not?)” by awardwinning author Conrad J. Storad. Storad’s latest picture book, illustrated by Alex Lopez, offers students and teachers a clever educational resource designed to introduce animals into a learning environment, helping teach children which animals are appropriate classroom pets and how to care for them. Established in 1990, the Pet Care Trust is a nonprofit foundation helping promote public understanding of the value and right to enjoy companion animals, to enhance knowledge of companion animals through research and education and to promote professionalism among members of the companion animal community. Through its Pets in the Classroom program, the Trust provides pre-K through eighthgrade teachers in the United States and Canada with educational grants designed to assist them in funding a classroom pet and its needed supplies.

Since 2010, the program has provided more than 50,000 classroom grants and more than 1.4 million students nationwide with access to a classroom pet. Five Star Publications Inc. is actively seeking sponsors to gift a copy of “Gator, Gator, Second Grader” to every pre-K through fourth grade Pets in the Classroom grant recipient this school year. All sponsors will be recognized in Five Star’s promotional efforts. To help or learn more, email FiveStarPublications@gmail.com, call (480) 940-8182 or visit www. GatorGatorSecondGrader.com.
