SHORT STORIES:

I'd like to share with you a few of my short stories. You can download, print them out and read them with your class.

You can find other stories your students might enjoy at the wonderful website of my friend, Robert Topp who is a champion supporter of children's literature. The link to his site can be found under Quick Links--Read Aloud Short Story Index.




From time to time I receive requests from educators who are looking for study guides and other material to aid in using some of my books. I am therefore in the process of creating focus questions and study guides that might help you share these books with your students.

Email me if you wish to have focus questions for The Gift-Giver, Yellow Bird and Me, One True Friend and Home is With Our Family. A link to my email address can be found on this page.
