Sherry Shahan wrote me with an amazing offer to WorldWide IDEA's Idita-Read 2012 Team Managers: a complimentary signed copy of her new book, ICE ISLAND (Random House, January 2012) to the first 10 who contact her.
Several teachers have already registered for our 2012 event and the book offer has been passed along to them, but there are still complimentary copies available. I expect them to go fast, so don't wait to register for the event for the chance to get this free, cool book for your students to read during the event and beyond!
ICE ISLAND is an Alaskan-based adventure for readers aged 9-13. It is the story of two kids who get lost in a freak snowstorm during a training run with their sled dogs. The pair must rely on each other — as well as their faithful dogs — to survive subzero temperatures and bone-numbing exhaustion.
