A book of poems about 3 famous mother daughter duos. (Starred reviews by School Library Journal and Booklist!)
Jeannine Atkins just published BORROWED NAMES. She sent me a copy but I don't get to keep it.
here. I vaguely rememer learning about Anne Hutchinson back in elementary school during a unit on the Puritans but I had forgotten. So I loved this book. It's a picture book for elementary students. You have to beg for that too.
I will be interviewing Jeannine here soon - like next week. So come back and meet her!
And have you noticed the copy of Captain Mac in the sidebar? Top right hand corner.Yep, there it is. I interviewed Author, Mary Morton Cowan here.
And one more thing - A DVD. This is a short reenactment of a historical event - think D-Day from the perspective of a French girl who suddenly finds her yard swarming with Allied soldiers. It's a short movie produced for a museum.

Times are tight. Budgets are being cut. But you can get a book for free. Here's how I know. I entered a contest for Riding Invisible by Sandra Akonzo. I won. It arrived yesterday. And a little over a year ago, I won Tracking Daddy Down by Mary Beth Kelsey. That's two books in less than two years. Not bad for someone who doesn't actually enter that many contests!
Someone's got to win - it might as well be you. Leave a comment. (A separate one for each book.)
Deadlines are as follows - I'll announce the winners on these dates.
Captain Mac - April 1
Borrowed Names - April 14
Anne Hutchinson's Way - April 14
DVD - Papa said, "We should never forget." April 21
