On February 18, Read Across Doss brings award-winning author Karen Robertson to visit with Doss 1st graders in the library.
Inspired by her two sons’ learning-to-read experiences, Karen Robertson created a book and accompanying game app designed to engage reluctant readers, dyslexic children, and adventure-seekers alike, in an exciting treasure hunt. Treasure Kai and the Lost Gold of Shark Island is a multi-sensory, interactive story with a twist on the choose-your-adventure format.
The book is different from others in that it has 8 treasure chests on it. One chest holds “gold” coins. The others hide small toys. The goal of the book is to find the gold treasure, so the reader will read a page of the book and then randomly choose a treasure chest to open. He will either find the gold and finish the story or find a toy. If he finds a toy, he then reads that corresponding story before opening another chest. He might find the gold on the first chest, the 4th or 5th or might take all 8 chests. Each reading is different and there are thousands of paths to gold.

The book is also an award-winning book app for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. See the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1zyYrTP9Xc
