My good cyber-buddy, Clara Gillow Clark, has an amazing opportunity on her blog today from author/illustrator Lindsay Barrett George. And some of us bloggers are working together to get the word out. Lindsay is offering a FREE school visit to anywhere as long as the school can pay her travel expenses!

If you aren’t familiar with Lindsay’s work, you can check out her website. Here are a couple of her books:
- Maggie’s Ball: Maggie’s Ball is currently out from Greenwillow Books. The description on the website says: “This is Maggie’s Ball. Now all Maggie needs is a friend to play with. Will you help her find one?”
- Alfred Digs: (also Greenwillow Books 2008) Description from website: “What would you do if your pet ant escaped from her ant farm? Would you follow her? Even if you had promised your Mama to eat your pie, and drink your milk, and stay in your cozy burrow?”
- In the Garden: Who’s Been Here?: (also Greenwillow Books 2008) Description from website: Christina and Jeremy have been sent to the garden to gather vegetables for dinner.
But they quickly realize that they are not the first visitors to the garden today. Keep your eyes open and join
Christina and Jeremy on a scientific journey in their own backyard!”
