Darcy Pattison, an author I met at the Arkansas SCBWI conference
last spring in Little Rock, is the author of some wonderful non-fiction books.
I find myself more and more endeared to the craft of non-fiction as I write the exercises in my ICL classes–there’s a different satisfaction that comes after completing a non-fiction work. I am guessing–just guessing mind you–that it is the ‘teacher response’ in me. There’s something about delivering facts with the element of fascination that excites both learners, and I suppose, writers.
Every kid has an opinion of bathtime. So, they might be fascinated that some baths go beyond the ordinary.
SO, Darcy has written this wonderful book, Desert Baths, that I wanted to feature in a post.
I’ll be referring the book to my school librarians, my community librarians, and my friends.
Facts with fascination. Get this book.
