Meanwhile, I'm blogging occasionally with the other Perseverance authors. Take a look at http://geti twriteblog.wordpress.com/category/sara-hoskinson-frommer/ to find my contributions. A recent one, "Kicking and screaming and rereading my babies," tells a little about the process of turning my old books into ebooks for all those gizmos.

Adult New Reader books

As my first contribution to literacy (before I started tutoring an adult learner in 1999), I wrote sixteen little books for adults who read at the first- and second-grade level. Very short and easy to read, these illustrated books appeal to the interests of adults, not children. Some of them are mysteries, including my first quilting mystery, Dear Mary Ellen. In 1999 I read about how Dear Mary Ellen was used in an ESOL GED class of Latino students learning to read mysteries. I was delighted to find my little story used between Langston Hughes and Guy de Maupassant, and getting raves from the students. In 1990 and 1991 they were published as the Kaleidoscope Collection of Stories by New Readers Press, the publishing division of Laubach Literacy International, and are still used in many literacy programs.
