Cambridge Books has released "Postcards from Mr. Pish:  A Cross-Country Journal Volume 2", the third book in the educational Mr. Pish series by K. S. Brooks.  It’s currently available on and will become available through bookstores and other online venues soon.

Postcards from Mr. Pish Volume 2 follows the adorable Jack Russell Terrier, Mr. Pish, as he embarks on a new adventure, traveling from his home in Washington State, up into Canada, and all the way to the East Coast.  The book features full-color photographs and text about Mr. Pish’s visit to Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village in Pincher Creek.

“Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village is a fantastic place to learn about early days on the prairie,” author K. S. Brooks explained.  “We take pride in sharing the most amazing places with Mr. Pish’s readers.”

Mr. Pish’s books are used in classrooms throughout the United States, Mexico, and even in Scotland.  “Mr. Pish engages children on a level they appreciate,” JD Mader, writer and clinical reading specialist at The Literacy and Language Center in San Francisco says of Postcards from Mr. Pish Volume 2.  “He encourages them to take part in his explorations and learn with him.  This is an excellent book to read at home or in a school environment, as it encourages interaction and exploration...all with the wag of a tail.”

Mr. Pish hit the road back in January 2011 to research his new books and to promote outdoor learning and literacy.  When he was done, he’d brought his tour tallies up to 41 States, Washington DC, and 7 Provinces of Canada.  This caught the attention of FIDO Friendly Magazine who selected Mr. Pish as one of the top 50 in the world of dogs for their celebratory 50th issue (July/August 2011).  Just last month, his second book, Mr. Pish’s Woodland Adventure, was named to the Top 150 Books of 2011 by Conversations Book Club.  “There is the perfect marriage of words and pictures that will keep your attention,” says book club President, C.A. Webb.
