Ten writers for children. All with something to say.

2/2/12

Coming Soon

The fourth and final book in the 4 for 4 series comes out on February 28. I will be pleased to have all four books together so kids (and adults) can read them one after another without having to wait.

These books are realistic fiction for third, fourth, fifth, and sixth graders and feature a different sport for each book. Despite the cover, they are about much more than sports and kids have responded positively to this.

I can use your help in getting these books in the hands of readers. Please let any kid or parent you think would be interested know that all four will be now be out. Thanks.

They are indeed about a lot more than sports and the sports are good too. Congratulations John!

And it wasn't all that long ago when you were just starting this new adventure, John. Congratulations on having all four books out!

I think there are MANY kids who will be excited about this series, and I will continue to pass my recommendations along.

It's great that these are wonderful friendship books, too. Jon, did you save basketball for last because it's your favorite?

Christy, they fell naturally that way, but it was fun to finish with basketball. It was also fun to explore what happens to these friends when things do not go as they planned. Thanks, Spuds, for all your support on these.

I am excited about these books because I have several students, who want to learn to read, but the one positive in their lives is one of the sports. It is terribly difficult to get them onboard by waving classic essays at them. At first, I worried they'd be offended be offered kids' books, since they are in college, but when I assigned them to read and present a book they'd recommend to a fifth grade boy, they were all over it. Good job, John. These are important books.

Teresa, thanks that makes my day. We need as many students as possible to be readers and I appreciate your efforts to make that happen.
