I WROTE A BOOK!
AND IT’S GETTING PRINTED!
Okay – I really meant to just write a blog post introducing the non-fiction children’s book I wrote, but I’m just too excited for a dry, boring, “this is what I wrote and this is why I wrote it” post.
So, instead, you get some intense gushing emotion.
I wrote a book. And it’s done. And I’m proud of it.
And I found a partner (Iowa Turkey Federation) to sponsor the printing, so I can GIVE IT AWAY to K and 1st grade teachers in Iowa.
(It’s surprising they agreed to work with me, considering how often I start a sentence with “and.”)
So yeah, it’s just a children’s book.
And it’s just non-fiction.
And it’s self-published, not regular-published.
But I don’t care.
The way I see it, I’m well on my way to being my generation’s Laura Ingalls Wilder, sharing my life on the prairie with children around the world. (Right?)
Now, the nitty gritty details:
Age range: 4+
I included two sections of text on each page. The first section is in Adam’s voice, and is meant for younger kids. The other section is more detailed background information appropriate for older students (3rd grade through 6th grade.)
Availability: FREE online version found here
Printed version for K & 1st grade teachers in Iowa FREE here
Printed version available to the rest of the world soon for a nominal fee
Bonus material: Free printable Thanksgiving and farm materials here
What’s that? You want to read the online version? I set up a page on my blog just for that!
Please, feel free to share, pin, and give me some feedback (as long as it’s positive and contributes to my gushing emotions, okay?)
