Read Anything Good Lately?
“A child’s question prompts another’s alphabetic reveries in this invitation to consider the many things and places to read: an atlas at the airport, a biography in bed. . . . In page-sized cartoons, Enright follows her smiling young bookworm from place to place, showing her reading alone and with company; indoors and out, up a tree, even in a Jacuzzi. Serving as a reminder to parents too, that reading opportunities are all around, this presents an engaging literary game likely to continue well beyond one pass through the ABCs.”—Kirkus Reviews

Author: Jane Lindaman
After a childhood of frigid winters in Reinbeck, Iowa, Jane Lindaman moved to Phoenix, Arizona. With a degree from ASU, she began a 24-year career in elementary special education. After 32 years of desert summers, Jane retired to Springfield, Oregon. Now she gets to spend her time reading, gardening, hiking, and volunteering. Jane and Bette, her golden retriever, are a pet partner team, which means that first graders at Camp Creek Elementary School get to read to her and "Alpha" Bette. Jane also volunteers at the Youth Farm, so named not for the promise of youthfulness, but for the at-risk youth that are hired to learn about organic farming. Harvested crops are distributed to local food banks. Lastly, Jane now also has more time for writing!
