CALLING Librarians, Teachers and Those Who Want to HOOK KIDS on READING

 This week I am on a Virtual Book Tour
hosted by the

National Writing For Children Center

to promote 
"Taconi and Claude - Double Trouble"
my new mid-grade adventure for boys - and tomboys too!
.

Writing the story of  "Taconi and Claude" was a labor of love.
Though I now live in the US, I spent the first half of my life in Australia.  The Outback, and the Dreamtime Land in this book, was only a kookaburra flight across the mountains from where I grew up.  It is an ancient land, and its aboriginal people are one of a kind.  And the far outback tribes enjoy a fascinating way of life

This is my BOOK TOUR schedule:


* Monday, March 21 - “Meet the Author”
Host: Irene Roth –

 NOTE
to 
Librarians, Teachers, and Home Schooling Parents:

.

 I would love to introduce my educational and kid friendly
books into your classrooms.      
Margot's Magic Carpet
contains all 11 of my books.
Do please check out my Teacher's Guide.  The KWL Learning Guide is included, and could easily be applied to enrich children's knowledge and perceptions of Australia: historically, culturally, and also the rich heritage of Down-under's unique flora, fauna and geography.  I am happy to answer any e-MAIL questions.
