The DINOSAUR TOUR Blog Tour rolls on today, courtesy of children’s author Kate Narita!
You know me…I rarely post anything on days other than Tuesday and Friday. And I NEVER post on a Sunday. But I needed to make an exception for this!
For the past several months, Kate has been featuring a different children’s book trailer each day, along with a short review and links to downloadable activity sheets that accompany the books. And today, coming in at #98, it’s Don’t Ask a Dinosaur (Pow! Kids), which officially arrives in stores next Tuesday, April 17! My co-author, Deb Bruss, and I are so happy that Kate liked our book enough to share it with her followers. So please be sure to check out her post HERE, and download the free activity sheets for your kids!

Purchasing personalized signed copies ONLINE? Yes, it’s true!
I’ve teamed up with the good folks MainStreet BookEnds in Warner, NH to present an option for people who would love to have a signed copy of one of my books but don’t live anywhere near me. MainStreet BookEnds has ALL but one of my books available for ordering…and the best part is, you can get them personalized!
Just log onto my website and click the cover of whichever book you want, and they will get it to me to sign and send it off to you. Try doing that with those big online booksellers! (Plus, you’ll be helping to support local book-selling – and wouldn’t that make you feel good?)
