Recently while doing a search on Amazon.com, I found that several of my titles have been included in two reference books aimed at getting kids to read! 🙂
The first one, Gotcha Again for Guys!: More Nonfiction Books to Get Boys Excited about Reading, was authored by Kathleen A. Baxter & Marcia Agness Kochel in October 2010. Three of my books were featured in this title! I’m not sure which ones yet (I’m waiting for my copy to arrive in the mail), but my name is listed in the index on pages 64, 95, and 125. I’m excited to see which ones! Hurry postal service, hurry!
The second title, Booktalking Around the World: Great Global Reads for Ages 9-14, was authored by Sonja Cole also in October 2010. Again, I’m waiting for my copy of this tome as well, so I’m not sure which title was featured. However, I am listed in the index on page 123 in a section about Mexico. I’m guessing this one is for my interactive history adventure, The Battle of the Alamo.
