I enjoy following Jennie Fitzkee, a preschool teacher in New England. I have featured her here on my blog. She believes in the power of reading out loud to children of all ages, including reading chapter books to preschoolers. Jennie recently posted about the books she read this summer, which included great picture books as well as some chapter books. And guess what, she included Amanda in Alberta: The Writing on the Stone! I was delighted that she enjoyed the story and wrote a good review. I’m included with some pretty awesome authors too.

This is part of what she wrote:

Amanda and Leah see the Calgary Stampede (a rodeo), go on a cattle drive, visit Buffalo Jump, and the dinosaur museum.  These adventures are intertwined with a mystery- Amanda finds a stone, which people seem to want, one cowboy in particular.  Amanda is curious about the markings on the stone and is determined to learn more.  She is the modern day Nancy Drew, and her sleuthing proves to be both dangerous and exciting at times.

Please read the rest of her post.

Since I am the featured author on  Cassandra Giovanni Writer’s blog this month she has featured three of my books today.

She is also running a contest to win a copy of Amanda in Alberta – The Writing on the Stone. So head on over and enter!

Cassandra  says:  “I highly recommend picking up ALL of these novels!”

And for a great review on Amanda in Alberta –  The Writing on the Stone, check out Lynn Davidson’s blog Polilla Writes  (Did you know that Polilla means bookworm in Spanish? How cool is that!)

Lynn says:

If you haven’t met Amanda before, you’ll need to know she is a twelve-year-old, adventurous, travel-loving girl who seems to find mysteries wherever she goes. This time in Amanda in Alberta: The Writing on the Stone, not evening the one leaving home she still gets involved in a situation.

Thank you so much Cassandra and Lynn! I am so grateful for the tremendous support from my blogging community. Without you I would just be a struggling author sitting in front of my computer wondering how to let the world know about my books. You all rock!!
