Books of the Week: Author Margot Finke and her wonderful books

Today, instead of one book, I’m highlighting a whole bunch of books by one author, Margot Finke. Her 7 rhyming book series about US and Australian animals are fun reads as well as educational. She’s also written “Rattlesnake Jam” which is hilarious. On her website she has delicious (?) sounding recipes for rattlesnakes.

Take Margot’s books beyond reading. First Hop over to Margot's DOWN-UNDER FUN - for fun facts about all the Aussie animals in this series.

Next, Buzz over and visit WILD US CRITTERS - to discover more fun facts about the U.S. animals in this series.

Go over to Gran's Kitchen
Read real recipes for cooking rattlesnake. Watch out your mom doesn't faint!

Since all her books are available as e-books, Margot wants to assures us that today's kids are computer savvy, and e-Books today are selling better than ever. Why? Because the technology for e-Books and POD publishing is finally coming of age, and who can afford expensive hard cover books anyway? Parents can SAVE MONEY and TREES by going GREEN, and buying their kids books on CD or Download. Be thrifty!!

Here are two great articles on both these topics.
