Deerfield Elementary teacher debuts first published book

LEXINGTON, S.C. — A newly published author, Deerfield Elementary Teacher Lauren Dasher recently drew from her experiences to teach students about perseverance and the process to create a children’s book.

Dasher’s first book, “Freddy Frog and His Adventure,” hit shelves in October. The first-grade teacher says the concept for the book started when she was just 13 years old.

Dasher took her original idea and rewrote the story to include important topics such as not talking to strangers and the dangers of greed. Last year, she learned the book was accepted for publication by Tate Publishing.

Deerfield Elementary students were among the first to read “Freddy Frog and His Adventure.” Just before Thanksgiving, Dasher unveiled the book and spoke to students about the writing, editing and publishing process.
