a world premiere by Debora Threedy

ALLI AND #3 is the story of gator named Alli and a heron without a name. They form an unlikely friendship as they follow a thinning river in search of a new home. A tale of fishing and friendship created specifically for grades K-3.


To bring our Free Elementary School Tour of ALLI AND #3 to your Utah elementary school during the 2021/22 school year (in-person, as streaming video, or as a podcast), simply email Education Coordinator Sharah Meservy today.


Students in grades K-3 will meet Core Standards in Drama, Science & Engineering, Language Arts, and Library Media.


After experiencing ALLI AND #3, students will understand how human activity impacts the natural world and that living things must adapt and/or migrate to survive. Students will be able to: (1) describe, analyze and evaluate the threat that climate change poses to natural habitats and living organisms, (2) explain the difference between weather and climate, (3) explain the greenhouse effect, demonstrate understanding that it is a natural phenomenon exacerbated by carbon emissions from human activity, and suggest positive actions that can be taken to reduce greenhouse gases, (4) offer examples of different types of habitats and organisms found in those habitats, (5), offer examples of animals adapting and/or migrating to survive adverse circumstances, and (6) understand how cooperation can lead to solutions to problems that would be impossible to achieve individually.


Our new children's book, CLEO AND THE CLIMATE by Sharah Meservy and illustrated Avery Franklin, was created as a companion piece to ALLI AND #3. Each school booking the 2021/22 Free Elementary School Tour (in-person, video stream, or podcast with coloring pages) receives a free copy for the school library.
