The Latest Happenings
As in the year before, I had the joy of being invited to write another children’s educational book for Red Line Editorial during my Christmas holiday. (I should say “started during my Christmas holiday and then kept working for a couple more months.”)
This one was about immigration. It was such a thrill to learn so many details about immigration that I’d never known, and as I researched, my admiration grew exponentially for the immigrants that I read and wrote about.
This new book is in the “Immigration to Canada – Then and Now” series of educational books published by Beech Street books, entitled Chinese Immigrants in Canada. It was published in August 2018, and I wrote about it here.
My post on the first book, Respect Our World: Sustainability, is here.
If you have any interest in writing children’s education books, I recommend Evelyn Christenson’s website, which not only has a list of organizations to contact, it also has tips and more.
AND…I’m still LOVING going to school and spending the whole day with sweet, enthusiastic, respectful, hardworking students. As I mentioned before, I also enjoy the entertainment value of working in an office across from the restrooms. I have the fun of listening to the kindergarten teachers’ variety of character-building moments during whole-class bathroom breaks!
Do check out some of my posts here, and on the Inscribe Writers Blog on my blogroll. I’d love to hear from you—just leave a comment!
Thank you to all of you who have connected with me here–it makes writing so much more fun, and I’m enjoying your posts, too.
