In my quest to develop another class from a recent Highlights article on wolves and the food chain, I found a BBC website for elementary-age kids. The activities are in science, English and math. There are also lesson plans for teachers. I added it to the LINKS section on this website.

Here's the article by Elizabeth O. Dulemba that I used to create this website. It was in the SCBWI Bulletin. My website is listed after the article. Now I'll have to check out the other websites that Elizabeth referenced. Thanks again Elizabeth!!

I just happened to be poking around on EBSCO through my town library's website and noticed that my July 2008 article in Highlights, "What Good Is The Big Bad Wolf?" has been published. What a great photograph of a wolf!!! They did a nice job.

Here's a website that will tell you how your senators voted on global warming legislation. I found this list of what we can do to make a difference.

Thursday was a joyous day. I hate to put another post here and let the photograph slip out of view. It's too much like reality. Sigh. But I have good news to share. I received a call from my editor at Highlights. He's buying my article about the fossa in Madagascar! The article is about the work of Dr. Luke Dollar.

Granted this isn't the most professional thing I've ever posted, but it's my blog and I'll do what I want.

Never in my lifetime, all 22 years (yeah right), do I remember school closing early on account of extreme heat, as it is today here in CT.
