Today is Mr. Pish’s birthday. The “Traveling Terrier” was a champion of childhood literacy and outdoor awareness. He was also the mascot of Indies Unlimited.
Though he passed away at the ripe old age of 16, his legacy lives on through his many books, calendars, and even a fun companion app.
His long-time human companion, best friend, and dedicated biographer/transcriptionist is our administrator, K.S. Brooks. Mr. Pish left her a wealth of material with which to carry on with his work in helping children love reading, nature, history, and geography.
We celebrate his life and achievements today. If you’d like to drop by any of Mr. Pish’s social media channels and wish him a happy birthday, or give him a follow or a like, his human would love to hear from you.
No joke, April is Mr. Pish month. “What the heck does that mean?” you ask. It means that we continue our celebration of the life and exploits of the famous traveling terrier who was also our mascot.
Mr. Pish visited 41 States, Washington DC, and 7 Provinces of Canada to discover awesome places to share with his readers. He traveled and lived with our admin, K. S. Brooks, and together the two wrote eight children’s books, 13 calendars and planners, one activity book, and one educational app for Apple and Droid products. All of Mr. Pish’s books and products promote outdoor learning and literacy.
But why April? Because Mr. Pish’s birthday is this month, and he’s still thought of every day. And he’s incredibly cute. Can you really resist that adorable face?
