Renee’s first book in this series, Taj Cleans The Garage, is also available.
Renee Prewitt’s new children’s book, Malcolm Mows the Lawn, has a very specific goal – Prewitt aims to bridge the 30 million word gap. Educators report that by the time a child is age 4, children from prosperous and more-educated households have heard and read more than 30 million more words than children from a disadvantaged socioeconomic background. Those words represent a world of infinite might-have-beens for too many children. So, Renee Prewitt wrote “Malcolm Mows the Lawn.” The Detroit author’s work for children, illustrated by Scott Everett, intends to help close that 30 million word gap by igniting the imagination and the wonders of words and reading.
Quote from the author, Renee Prewitt:
“This is the second in a series of books I’m writing to help close the 30 Million Word Gap by Age 3,” Prewitt says. In addition, she also plans to talk to parent groups about the study and new findings in closing the achievement gap. “Reading to our children is so important,” she says, “but we should also engage them in conversation!” Prewitt hopes that Malcom will also encourage more young boys to read.
