The Adventures of Meadowlark and His Passion for Golf, by Judith Tilton and Jake Magaldi


The AdveThe Adventures of Meadowlark and His Passion for Golfntures of Meadowlark and His Passion for Golf

by Judith Tilton and Jake Magaldi

Illustrated by Kate Tortland

Meet Meadowlark, the tiny, big-hearted bird who is on a mission to learn how to play golf, then teach other birds how to play.

This delightful, uplifting story with rich, stunning illustrations, challenges conventional wisdom about the limitations and expectations assigned to all creatures at birth. A story about curiosity, determination, and what it takes to knock down widely held beliefs, Meadowlark’s tale illustrates how observation, perseverance, and the joy of learning open our eyes, not only to a world of possibilities, but to the world around us.

For beginning readers to fifth-graders, Meadowlark’s story is like a breath of fresh air, bringing relief from the dizzying pace of the high-tech world we live in.

Meet the Authors

Jake Magaldi, a New Jersey high-school student, has always had tremendous enthusiasm for learning and writing, combined with a passion for the outdoors and the world around him. In his free time, Jake enjoys playing golf with friends and family, including his grandmother, Judith Tilton.

Judith Schumacher-Tilton is president of Schumacher Chevrolet Auto Group, New Jersey’s largest volume Chevy dealer, with locations in Clifton, Denville, Livingston, and Little Falls. She is the recipient of multiple awards for her leadership roles in business, in her industry, and in the community she serves.

This book began with a “little seed” planted by Judi and came to life through Jake’s creative writing. Because of their love for each other and the game of golf, this grandson/grandmother author team helped that little seed to blossom into a beautiful story about a little bird, Meadowlark, and his passion for golf. Meadowlark’s goal is to learn to play golf and share his knowledge and joy for the game with all the other birds.
