The Books Are in the Building!
It’s always cause for celebration when the new books arrive. Though I’ve read the story a hundred times, pored over the page proofs, and seen the cover, holding that book in my hands and paging through it is different somehow. This particular book is more special than most, because I have been waiting for it for so long. At one point, I wasn’t sure it was ever going to get published. But here it is.
And now I’m anxious to show it off. Please join me at the Crwth Press book launch on October 1st, and let me share my excitement — and the book.
Another great review.
“ Excellent. Middle schoolers will enjoy this book, especially girls who play hockey or other sports. Boys will also appreciate the historical accuracy of the game. This book could be used a part of a Canadian history class. ” – Resource Links
