Exciting FREE opportunity

We don't usually promote information for older kids, but here's some information we just received which talks about a program which could be great fun for classes and homeschooling families with older kids (middle school) to think about 'attending':

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt invites teachers, librarians, booksellers, and reading groups to participate in a special live webcast with David Macaulay on October 7 at 10:00AM EST.

MacArthur genius and Caldecott Medalist David Macaulay is beloved by teachers, librarians, and readers around the world for his ability to explain just about anything. Now he has turned his attention to the most complicated structure of all: the human body.

Register today to watch David talk with middle-school students about his new book, The Way We Work: Getting to Know the Amazing Human Body (available 10/07/2008). Participants viewing the webcast online can email questions for him to answer in real time. Macaulay will also discuss how he creates his books, his career, and other popular titles including The New Way Things Work, Mosque, Cathedral, and Black and White.

Webcast details:
Tuesday, October 7

10:00AM EST


To register, and for more information on David Macaulay and his books, visit

After registration, you will receive guidelines for hosting and viewing the webcast.

If your class or homeschool family participates, we'd love to hear about it!
