Counting Down the Days

At this time of year students tend to get restless and tired of the routine of school. The kids aren't the only ones to get weary. If you're a teacher, you may be counting down the days until summer break. It may seem that you must work extra hard to keep the students' attention. When each day seems longer than the last, those final weeks of school can be hard.

Maybe I can help. Since The Legend of Sassafras House was released last August, I've done presentations in a number of elementary and middle schools, and I'll be happy to visit your school. I'll promote literacy and give your students some pointers on the basics of writing fiction. This material is best suited for students in grades three through six. I'll speak to individual classrooms, grade levels, or large groups.

There aren't many weeks left in this school year, so let me know ASAP if you'd like your school added to my schedule.



  1. Hi Anita. Congratulations on your book. I was just scrolling thru the Wednesday Baker and saw a comment from you from long ago. So I cane over to say hello. I don’t do anything with my blog. But it’s still there. I got messed up and I don’t know how to fix it. So I see you are still posting recipes. Take care. Nice to see your work. Andi

    1. Hi Andi! I’m so glad to hear from you. The sequel to The Legend of Sassafras House will be out later this year, if all goes on schedule. My recipe blog is still there, but I don’t devote as much time to it as I once did. I hope all is well with you and your family.
