Purpose of My Website...
Hi! I am delighted that you have joined me at what I hope will be the "hot books" website for picture books, junior novels and juvenile non-fiction. Included are titles I believe to be among the best of the best.

For some of the titles I have added an idea for using the book(s) in the classroom. The ideas come from educators everywhere, so if you have a favorite book and an idea for sharing it, please e-mail it to me and I will include all that space allows.

I look forward to hearing from you !
