Author Showcase: The Literacy Ambassador in the Reading Tub

A Snapshot of an Author

Many of you have read in my posts about the Reading Tub. I'm honored to be in their author spotlight this month so encourage you to visit their blog as well as the author showcase page itself.

In addition to the interview with me for this month, you'll also find book lists and reviews, articles of interest to educators and teachers, archives of past authors (can you find your favorites and a few new ones?) and even learn how to be in the showcase yourself if you are a author of children's books.

Need a presenter, trainer, speaker?

Some of you may know that I travel around the country to speak to parent groups and conferences as well as conduct educator training and you won't find a stronger advocate for children and books than me.  Feel free to visit TLA's website to find topics thatmeet your needs.

Next post will be for our parents promoting reading with older students . . . stay tuned!

As a Mother of two reluctant readers, I must say that this book has helped my two boys create an amazing interest in reading. “HELLS AQUARIUM” by Steve Alten, about the giant prehistoric shark Megalodon. Thanks to this book, my kids now read at will. http://www.amazon.com/Meg-Hells-Aquarium-Steve-Alten/dp/1935142046

To the Anonymous mom - I'm so glad that you found the book to turn your boys on to reading. It really is about finding the one they can connect to. My friend, Donalyn Miller calls boys like yours "dormant" readers - just waiting to be awakened. I love that positive term.
