"Humor and wit make the narrative sparkle, and, happily, Myrtle is as irrepressible as ever.”
"An important, positive conservation message, and a perfect nonfiction addition to preschool story time or a beginning informational picture book collection." - SLJ, starred review
This was a big week for EMLA author Trent Reedy, whose book WORDS IN THE DUST was chosen as Al Roker's latest Book Club pick. Taking his place on the couch next to host Al Roker, Trent answered questions from four young readers who not only loved his book but awarded it an unprecedented 5 stars! Follow this link to catch up on the event and watch Trent in action if you missed it live.
Congratulations, Trent, on meeting this terrific opportunity with such poise and presence!
While in New York, Trent was also able to visit the offices of the organization Women for Afghan Women. A portion of proceeds from sales of WORDS IN THE DUST will be donated to Women for Afghan Women so that they can continue helping the women and girls of Afghanistan.
