Book Publication News! and Another More Minor Reno Job

Remember when I got paid to write activities for a book last year?  I had another opportunity this year to contribute to another book from the same publisher!  This time I researched for updated books for booklists in The Story of the World Activity Book 3.  These booklists make it easier for parents to supplement their children’s reading about… Continue reading Book Publication News! and Another More Minor Reno Job
