Filled with intriguing facts, the Learning Center brings alive Trouble’s world. Here, every illustration in Sign of the Rat has relevant information giving the story cultural, scientific and historical context. In this way, a fictional world becomes a portal to learning about the real world. Questions are posed and answers are given. There are many embedded videos as well as hotlinks to websites rich with animation and photographs. We hope teachers, home-schooling parents and fans of the Trouble adventure series enjoy exploring the interactive content. The questions and answers might also be fun for grandparents to share with their grandkids. We’d love to hear how you used the Learning Center.
