BOOKS: TEACHER RESOURCES

As a children’s writer I try to “Make Learning Fun” by  helping busy teachers address curriculum accountability standards, and encouraging other writers to do the same. And I strive to make that educational process simple and fun for everyone. Over the years, thousands of children have taken part in learning activities I’ve created. And they’ve had almost as much fun as I have.
