Chicago Tribune Young Readers Book Reviews - Sept 12

Mary Harris Russell reviews three books including one by fellow Illinois-SCBWI member Esther Hershenhorn. I might add Esther recently stepped down as Regional Advisor for Illinois SCBWI (after serving for 17 years). She will always, however, be my writing Mom! Her book sounds wonderful.

I can't wait to read Mom's, I mean, Esther's masterpiece. Are you going to Esme's Reading Room for the booksigning? October 4th, I believe...

I've heard Esther's book is great--especially for teachers. I haven't heard about the other two, so thanks for sharing those with us! :)

Oct 4th sounds right. I think we've got too much going on, but there's a chance.
