Review Books

I’ve taken a year off from blogging because my writing schedule grew so heavy. I stopped late in winter, 2012. I have not yet decided if I’ll return to blogging, but if you liked my blog, you might like my latest book for librarians, which will be out in December, 2013, from ABC-Clio. It’s a book of STEM and Common Core lessons for the library using mentor texts: Teaching STEM and Common Core with Mentor Texts: Collaborative Lesson Plans, K-5 by Anastasia Suen and Shirley Duke  (Nov 30, 2013).



I will be happy to receive review books at the elementary school or middle school level that have some sort of a science correlation and I will read and review those I believe will fill a need for my blog. I can’t promise to review all the books I receive, but each one will be carefully considered and if I can use it, I will. You can contact me about my address at:

I would appreciate any suggestions or comments about books or the blog. If you use an idea and like it, I’d love to hear from you. You can find out more about me at
