WIN A Chance To Become A Markle's Book Explorers School

Here's a group of Markle's Book Explorers at Beacon Cover Intermediate School in Jupiter, Florida

WOW!  The first year of Markle's Book Explorers was amazing.  Through my on-line contest, I adopted nine schools across the United States.  

I love it when my books make readers smile!
I gave copies of my books to these schools.  I shared action-packed opportunities for young readers to explore my books.  

That's me on the BIG screen performing science magic.

Thanks to email and Skype, I also stayed connected to the Markle's Book Explorer schools and even visited most of the schools.

I was overwhelmed by the enthusiastic response I received from the children and the teachers.   So I'm going to stay connected with those nine schools.  They'll become Markle's Book Explorers Alumni.  However, with the start of 2013, it's time to pick a new group of schools to become Markle's Book Explorers.  Any teacher, librarian, or school administrator can enter their school before February 28th.  I'll announce the winners on March 15, 2013.

To enter, just use the post option to enter your school's name and contact information.

The names of all entries will go into a hat and I’ll select nine.Please be sure to include your email address to make it easier for me to be in touch!

Of course, everyone can still join me and share special activities here at my blog. I look forward to continuing to meet you here and can’t wait to start connecting with the 2013 Markle’s Book Explorers.
