Another very good thing that happened to us on the way back from Chicago, we met Tammi Sauer, Oklahoma children’s book author extraodinaire. She wrote Cowboy Camp, and if you have any children in your family between say four and eight you need to get this one for them.
Plus she is a genuinely nice person. And the good news is she has a new book coming out very soon, called Chicken Dance. And look at this news from her website,
June 26, 2009:
CHICKEN DANCE was selected for the theme book for Read Across Oklahoma 2010. Bawk-bawk-ba-GAWK!
Look at her blog, she’s got a picture at ALA (American Library Association), where she was signing and promoting her new book. I can’t wait to see Chicken Dance. (I must have been off at some boring meeting during her signing, Sigh)
So sometimes work can be fun, at least when it’s in Chicago or at the airport. Check out Tammi’s works if you haven’t and see what an Okie author is up to on her blog and website.
