      No problem, Cynthia. So many kids become avid readers thanks to non-fiction, so I’m more than happy to help spread the word.


  2. Hello All. I’ve been reading about Joan of Arc. She’s particularly fascinating, and there are a surprising number of picture books about her.

    I reviewed a funny book for ages 8+ about the history and science behind the food we eat, called The World in your Lunch Box.
