Because of COVID-19, I’m not able to attend any in-person events to celebrate the launch of my three new books: OUR WORLD, A First Book of Geography; TIP AND TUCKER PAW PAINTERS; and ALL EXCEPT AXLE. If you’d like to talk about an on-line event, please contact me through this site.
I so appreciate all of the support I’ve received through social media, and thank you to all those who are recommending these books to libraries and schools for purchase or buying a copy themselves. Thank you! Books are around a long time and I’ll plan a party as soon as it’s safe. You’re invited!
What a thrill to “meet” one more time with students at Line Creek Elementary in Kansas City, MO, as part of their read-a-thon. Librarian extraordinaire Kari Holub has been my contact all year for the Kids Need Mentors author-school program. Have a good summer, Line Creek Lions!
I recorded readings of two of my books, PUG MEETS PIG and TIP AND TUCKER HIDE AND SQUEAK, for Lead to Read KC’s video outreach to Kansas City kids: https://docs.google.com/document/d/18_UwqO4ZZaWCxpliVFPCQHyZlJrZKrvudBBjV_T21O4/edit
