Return to a time when a boy could be a boy, when life was clearer from the top branch of a tree, when a kid could trade anger and disappointment for action and adventure, when the whole neighborhood was his playground, and the sloppy kiss from a dog could make everything right.
Wander back trough time with me as you read my new novel, Tucker McBride, releasing on July 30, 2019. Then, come join us here to brainstorm about possible discussion ideas and activities for the classroom. Your ideas will be welcome.
Vicki Borgman, a fifth grade teacher here in Indiana and Donna Brewer, also a fifth grade teacher in Houston, Texas will use my novel, Tucker McBride in a several week reading unit in their classrooms in the spring of 2020.
Join them as the students have fun learning about a time, in 1946, when kids were outside letting the fresh breeze blow all the dust out of their thinking from sun up to sun down. Perhaps you would like to use Tucker McBride in your classroom, or read it to your students, enjoy it with your family or your reading club, or curl up in your cozy chair and smile with all the antics of a twelve-year-old boy.
Tucker McBride is available for pre-order on Amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and other on-line book outlets. It can also be ordered at your brick and mortar store. Your target deadline? Pull out your tablet, cell phone, or laptop and order Tucker McBride on July 30.
