To Fly, the Story of the Wright Brothers makes the list

Oh my heavens.
For some time I've noticed that some of my books have suddenly become very popular on Weird.
I had finally decided that Amazon had simply gone wonky because To Fly, the Story of the Wright Brothers had never ever shown sales that high before.

Yesterday I was exploring Marc Aronson's blog, Nonfiction Matters, and began reading some information about the new national Common Core Standards for US schools.
Interesting -- there's a booklist of recommended books to support these standards.
I wonder. ...

(well, you guessed what I wondered -- what any author would wonder -- were any of my books on this list?)

So, there I was, sitting in the back of the room of a fantasy art workshop at BaltiCon, the local science fiction convention,while my granddaughter and her friend drew dragons, exploring the appendix of the Common Core Standards on my iPhone, trying to resist disturbing the workshop with my squeals of glee.  My book is on this list!

Oh my!

Congratulations! How great to have your work recognized!

Now I am off to search Dr. Google for a list of Common Core reading materials.
