Travel with Books

Travel with Books

I am starting a new video series on social media, highlighting books for kids, teens, and adults that help them travel through history.  I hope to virtually take you to the very places that are featured in the book and when possible, interview the authors to learn more about their book and its place in history.  

Check out my social media accounts on Facebook or Instagram to see these videos.  You can also watch them at my YouTube channel.  Come and join me!
