School Library Connection Recommends The Jericho River!

I’m delighted to announce that School Library Connection has recommended The Jericho River! The review appears in the In the August/September issue. Here’s an excerpt:

School Library Connection's recommendation: The Jericho River!I really enjoyed this book. I loved the history and the strange creatures Jason meets and befriends along the way. Another great thing about the book is its relevancy to the classroom, featuring a nice set of lesson plans in the back. The story is well told and the characters are well-developed. I feel that readers with a love of history will really enjoy this book.
