Announcing our Presidents' Day Giveaway Winner

The winner of our special Presidents' Day giveaway is Kirsten Larson, an aspiring author and mother of two who blogs at CreatingCuriousKids.   Congratulations, Kirsten!

Kirsten will be receiving an autographed copy of The Camping Trip that Changed America, written by Barb Rosenstock and illustrated by Caldecott medalist Mordicai Gerstein. The book is a perfect President's Day read, since it's the story of a little-known event in U.S. history:

In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt and conservationist John Muir camp together in the Yosemite wilderness and discover a shared passion for nature that saves America's wilderness. 
Thanks again to Barb for her terrific guest TeachingAuthor interview.

A big THANK YOU, also, to all who participated in the contest.
And, as always, happy writing!

Thanks Carmela and Teaching Authors. Barb's book is exactly the kind I aspire to write -- educational and entertaining and certainly never stuff. Thanks for adding to my pile of inspiring books.

"Stuffy" not "stuff." I need an editor.

I know the feeling, Kirsten (of needing an editor). :-)
Congrats again.
