Closer to my home (and heart–I’m UW grad!), Malcolm is the CCBC Read On, Wisconsin book club pick for grades 3-5 this month.
In honor of these, I’ve rewritten my teacher’s guide for Malcolm. It’s now aligned to the Common Core!
Malcolm is included in Jim Trealease’s 7th edition of his Read Aloud Handbook. Love this, especially because I still own a very well-worn earlier edition that I depended on as a classroom teacher.
I was interviewed for the Writer’s Digest blog, Guide to Literary Agents.
I also can be found over on Kings River Life.
On a different note (and book), the Wisconsin Media Lab is creating some amazing resources for educators about Wisconsin history. Check out this video they’ve created on Dr.Kate Pelham Newcomb, who is the subject of my Badger Biography, Angel on Snowshoes.
And finally–because every list should end in adorableness–this cutie did her summer reading project on Malcolm at Midnight. She’s getting a prize from her principal!
I’m speaking this Monday night at the opening meeting of the University Women’s Association here in Eau Claire. If you’re at all connected to UW-EC, you are invited to come! I hear there will be cookies, too.
The Chippewa Valley Book Festival is just around the corner, October 14-20. I’m excited to be a part of it again and am looking forward to visiting local schools to talk about Malcolm and writing.
