Sarah and I are honored that the book is a Junior Library Guild selection and received a starred review from Booklist.
To celebrate, Sarah and some family friends worked together to create this sweet book trailer.
And I created a new video mini-lesson about voice in nonfiction writing. To view it, click this link and scroll to the bottom of the page.
The video compares the lively voice of Pipsqueaks, Slowpokes, and Stinkers: Celebrating Animal Underdogs and the lyrical voice of Seashells: More than a Home. It also provides tips for crafting nonfiction with a strong voice.
Seashells will be available in bookstores on April 2, but you can pre-order it now.
