Librarians are a vital part of our communities. They guide people to the right information, but just how do they do this important job? This book features photos and information through easy-to-read text that allows readers a peek behind the scenes at this interesting job. Additional features include a table of contents, informational captions and sidebars, a phonetic glossary, sources for further research, an index, a Think-About-It section, and an introduction to the author.

They hide in the shadows. They balance like cats on overhead beams. They vault over castle walls. All to learn their enemies’ plans. And unlike samurai, if ninjas do their jobs well, no one will ever know they’re there.

I’m delighted to announce that today is Release Day for my celebrity biographies, DWAYNE ‘THE ROCK’ JOHNSON, LEA MICHELE, TAYLOR LAUTNER, and TAYLOR SWIFT!
Here’s what my publisher, The Child’s World, has to say about the Stars of Today series:
“The Stars of Today series introduces today’s hottest celebrities to young readers.
Each book covers a star’s early life, rise to fame, and career highlights. Interesting
quotes and anecdotes are captured in sidebars throughout each book. A glossary
and lists of additional resources help readers better understand each star. This
series is a must-read for any fan of these celebrities!”
Want to rub elbows with a star? Order online or ask your librarian to pick up a copy!

We used BREAD BEFORE THE STORE and BLUE JEANS BEFORE THE STORE to discuss the writing process and elements of nonfiction, including text features to look for in nonfiction books.
The kids and their adults asked great questions and even gave me suggestions for future writing projects.
Thanks for the opportunity, Park University!
