Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for all the great comments on last week's post by Jamie Michalak about her great new duo, Frank and Bean. I think we all agree that Jamie's tasty ingredients for writing early readers was a delightful recipe with invaluable insights about writing for young readers. 

Please don't forget to visit Jamie's website to learn more about her books, author visits, a FREE activity guide for classrooms using the Joe and Sparky series, and much more! Check it all out here: www.jamiemichalak.com
