Today is a super awesome day. As many of you know, I love writing as much as I love reading. Today my newest book called A Spectacular Natural Wonder: Niagara Falls hits the Amazon shelves. I was inspired to write this book after visiting the Falls myself. Last year after visiting with my family I wrote part of this poem. I wanted to teach about Niagara Falls in a fun way, so I began writing it in poetry style. This is one of those things that got put on the back shelf since I have been working vigorously on my Tutorpreneur program to teach other tutors how to run their own tutoring business. This year, as we were travelling, I was reminded about it. I begin revising my poem and then started searching for the best photographers that could help tell my story. It was easy to do, but much more time consuming than I thought. I worked and worked and worked on it to get it just right. I am really pleased with the final product and would love for you to open the pages of it and enjoy it. You will feel like you are right there in the falls experiencing it throughout all times of the year.
As I have been tutoring children in reading online, I have found that one of the areas that they struggle with is non-fiction reading. Many children have a gap in their fiction and non-fiction reading levels. Specifically girls find reading non-fiction as boring. However, the more non-fiction books that a child reads, the higher their success rate in all of their other classes. It is important that children are exposed to as much non-fiction books as possible. This was one of the inspirations for writing this book. I used easy to read language so that the earliest of readers could enjoy it over and over again. It can even be read to younger children before bed, without boring them to pieces.
If you are interested in checking out the book, you can find it on Amazon. A Spectacular Natural Wonder: Niagara Falls.
