Dear Friends, 

Thanks for all the wonderful comments for Laurie Calkhoven and her new book ROOSEVELT BANKS, GOOD-KID-IN-TRAINING! You're the best! The lucky winner of the Laurie's new book is: CAROL NELSON. Congratulations, Carol! I'm sure your grandson will be excited to receive an autographed copy!

Advance praise for ROOSEVELT BANKS, GOOD-KID-IN-TRAINING. “Broad humor lightens the load of this lesson, and nuanced friendships enrich it.”―Kirkus Reviews

Laurie Calkhoven has never swallowed a frog, knocked over a rabbit hutch, or sung too loud in music class, but she is the author of more than 50 books for young readers. Recent titles include the G.I. Dog series, and You Should Meet Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 

To book a school visit or to learn more about Laurie, her books, and her workshops for writers visit her website:

Laurie is also ongoing faculty at Highlights Foundation: Writing Early Readers and Transitional Chapter Books 

I'm happily busy on a lot of different projects, so the next blog post will be coming in the spring. See you then!
