    Kids Can Get Chemistry!

    Kids Can Get Chemistry!

    Dr Colleen Kelley returns to the #ReadingWithYourKids #Podcast to celebrate her MC Detective Agency Comic Books. Dr Colleen tells us these comics books were designed to give kids a chance to take a deep dive into chemistry and bond with a cavalcade of chemical characters! You’ll get to know Granny Eve and her grandkids, Poppi and Ray, as you join them on missions (aka “cases”) and learn everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the mysterious world of molecules! Dr Colleen believes that kids can learn chemistry at a much earlier age.

    The Phantom Slave Stealer

    The Phantom Slave Stealer

    Francis Schoonmaker is on the #ReadingWithYourKids #Podcast to celebrate her #MiddleGrade #Novel Sid Johnson and the Phantom Slave Stealer. Francis tells us in this novel we will meet Sid Johnson, a young teen who’s parents claim they don't know anything about a slave stealer that slave holders call the "Phantom." But when Sid discovers that their Southern Illinois farm is a stop on the Underground Railroad, he isn't so sure Ma and Pa are telling him the truth. They could get caught breaking the law. When bounty hunters threaten Pa, Sid resolves to take action to protect the family. Before his plans are in place, bounty hunters burn the barn. With a civil war brewing and the farm compromised as a stop on the Underground Railroad, Ma and Pa decide to go west. Disappointed that he failed to learn any more about the slave stealer, Sid is glad to leave the slave question behind. He is about to find out that the ugly shadow of slavery reaches beyond the Johnson farm to the Santa Fe Trail, and his involvement with the Phantom Slave Stealer has just begun.

    Thankful We Can Share

    Author Carmen Agra Deedy and illustrator Brian Lies are on the #ReadingWithYourKids #Podcast to celebrate their beautiful new #PictureBook Wombat Says Come In. In this book we meet a kindhearted wombat offers refuge to a parade of animal friends during an Australian bushfire.
    Australian bushfires roar above Wombat’s home. He is fortunate that his burrow is deep below ground and he is safe. He snuggles under his crazy quilt and drinks his tea. Then, one by one, five uniquely Australian animals – Wallaby, Kookaburra, Platypus, Koala, and Sugar Glider – seek refuge from the fires, and Wombat welcomes them all. When you have the heart of a wombat, there’s always room for one more! Fellowship, empathy, and adorable Australian animals star in this delightfully heartwarming and funny story about help in the time of trouble.

    Do You Have What It Takes To Be A Green Actioneer?

    Do You Have What It Takes To Be A Green Actioneer?

    Dave Finnigan is on the #ReadingWithYourKids #Podcast to celebrate The Green Actioneers Family Action Guide. The Green Actioneers believe that kids deserve a green future. This compelled them to create “The Green Actioneers Family Action Guide: The Definitive Guide to “Going Green,” Saving Money, and Saving Our Planet.”  A collection of passionate University of Central Florida interns has worked to create this family road map to save energy, water, money and, ultimately, the Earth.  They look forward to becoming the ultimate resource for families who want to go green. This is a STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO “GOING GREEN” The book is unique because it appeals to both kids and parents. There are over 100 potential actions families can take to go green. Every two-page spread describes one action with a description on the left that tells briefly about some of the benefits in English and Spanish. On many of these pages we have a relevant game or puzzle. On the right side we have a coloring book, plus a quote from someone famous, who kids or families can research.
