Love this book!
Theodore Roosevelt for Kids: His Life and Times, 21 Activities is for young readers, but adults will enjoy it, too. (I did!) Author Kerrie Logan Hollihan brings Theodore Roosevelt and his times to life with a well-researched and well-written book, full of interesting details, great quotes, excellent photos and illustrations, and intriguing sidebars. It's a great resource for kids' research but also just a fun read! You can find it on amazon.

Here are some pictures of my visit to the Religious Booksellers Trade Exhibit. I had a wonderful time meeting the Pauline sisters, visiting the various displays, and signing books! That's a big stack of The Stepping Stones Journals on the table, my latest book from www.pauline.org.

I recently found out that Saints of Note - The Comic Collection won third place for children's books at the 2010 Catholic Press Association Awards and Now You're Cooking - Ten Short Stories with Recipes won Honorable Mention! The Catholic Journalist says: "Saints of Note connects modern children's 'real' problems with the lives of a saint. The presentation aids in the resolution of the problems and teaches about each saint. It gives a clear example that no problem is new and the same feelings have been felt by saints." Many thanks to everyone at Pauline Books and Media who worked so hard on these books!
