Dear Book Lovers,
I'm excited to share some great pieces of news!
First, our newest book, "It's Time for Good Manners!" just appeared on Amazon and it's now available on Barnes and Noble.com. It will also be available to other book stores (such as Borders) via expanded distribution through Baker and Taylor, and Ingram.
You can see the little picture of the book over on the side of the blog. This is a really cute book that combines teaching good manners with telling time -- because good manners happen all the time! Children will spend the day with the four characters (Torie, Tad, Tyler and Tessa) who run into opportunities to use and learn good manners all day long. The clocks are cleverly illustrated and children will love them. They also get the chance to take a pencil or crayon and color and draw the time and clock designs of their very own. Lots of practice and lots of fun. Children, teachers and parents have had a lot of really great things to say about "It's Time for Good Manners!" -- so we have our fingers crossed for good response.
Next, author Todd Fonseca (The Time Cavern) wrote a very nice review of "The Month of Zephram Mondays," which he posted on Amazon. (You can read it here, if interested.) Zephram has been picked up via expanded distribution at BarnesandNoble.com and is also going to be stocked in some Borders. (It too is available through Baker and Taylor, and Ingram.)
Last, "The Kids' (and parents', too!) Book of Good Sportsmanship" continues to be the little engine that could. For some authors and books, the following information would not be remarkable, but ...
*This afternoon it had an Amazon sales rank of 29,000. We are so excited!
*We have started with some fundraising programs and we've also been getting orders from school districts.
*And, I stopped by our local Wayne Bookstore today to find out that they had sold out all of their stock.
Many, many, many thanks to our Good Sport Fans!
That's my update for today, Dear Readers! With all your spring chores, I hope you're able to find some time to fit in some reading!
