A wonderful surprise in the new issue of Missouri Reader

Hi everyone,

Today I express my gratitude to Sam Bommarito and Glenda Nugent, co-editors of Missouri Literacy Association’s journal, MISSOURI READER, for featuring me in the new issue that comes out this weekend. Sam is also going into the second year of his two-year term as Chairman of the MLA. For some reason the national organization, International Literacy Association, has decided the heads of state chapters should now be called chairmen instead of president.

Last year I celebrated the 50th year since my first book for children was published. Sam and Glenda honor me for that and more so I hope you will enjoy their article and of course the entire issue. Here’s the link. https://joom.ag/RCwe

If you would like to become a member of MLA and/or contribute to the organization, you can do it online at https://mla31.wildapricot.org/Join-MLA. State Reading associations are in need of support for the invaluable work they do in supporting teachers and their efforts to help their students develop literacy skills that lead to a fuller life.
