The highlight of my autumn was a two-week trip to Japan with my husband Will. We did many fun things, including walking down the “Green Carpet,” of the Tokyo International Film Festival for the premier of a Japanese “anime” of Magic Tree House.
As a new school year begins, I am excited to introduce you to my new Classroom Adventures Program. I regard this program as my 20th anniversary gift to teachers who have inspired me with their dedication to their students and creative use of Magic Tree House in the classroom.
Last Wednesday, my husband Will and I spent a magical day at Old Mill Pond School in Palmer, Massachusetts. Since spring, 2011, the school has been helping us develop our Magic Tree House Classroom Adventures Program.
My big news is that Dogs in the Dead of Night comes out this week! My research for this book involved spending a magical afternoon with several St. Bernard dogs (thanks to Cheryl Barber and her Brushy Creek Saints.)
