Check out our new original serial story
“The Brass Bell,” an original free serial commissioned by the NAA Foundation, is now available in both English and Spanish.
This six-chapter story focuses on three friends and their “expedition” to find treasure. Written by Cathy Sewell of The Curriculum Closet, the serial comes with matching illustrations and a teacher’s guide.
It is designed to launch in conjunction with International Literacy Day (Sept. 8) and Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15-Oct. 15), but can be used anytime between now and Nov. 30, 2011.
