I received an email yesterday from the office of the First Lady of Wisconsin, Jessica Doyle, saying that my short-story chapter book, Indian Shoes (Harper, 2002)(ages 7-up), will be a featured intermediate title for Read On Wisconsin! (an online statewide book club).
Why not surf on over and learn about their featured titles from February and before?
A few of my favorites include: Did You Hear The Wind Sing Your Name: An Oneida Song of Spring by Sandra De Coteau Orie (featured this month for preschool); Baby Goes Beep by Rebecca O'Connell (featured in September for infants); Toddler Two/Dos Anos by Anastasia Suen (featured in October for infants); Good Luck Cat by Joy Harjo (featured in October for primary); Wings by Christopher A. Myers (featured in December/January for primary); Baseball Saved Us by Ken Mochizuki (featured in November for intermediate); When My Name Was Keoko by Linda Sue Park (featured in October for middle school); The Heart Of A Chief by Joseph Bruchac (featured in December/January for middle school); and Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson (featured in September for high school).
The National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature offers the exhibit "Paul O. Zelinksy: Angels to Ogres" through February 19. The works of N.C. Wyeth will debut March 5.
