Can you dig it?

Original post made on Sep 7, 2012

So great! I went on a tour with my 3rd grader the the Pleasanton Museum last year and she was the leader. She was wonderful and so knowledgeable. So great to finally see a positive book for girls, I'm so sick of princess stories. I hope she goes a long way with these books! Anyone know where I can get the book- the Pleasanton book shop?

I got a signed copy at Towne Center Books on Main. It's also available on Amazon.

Btw, I think you should take Chloe traipsing around the globe to many different famous archeological sites. Readers would love this.

Thank you for your lovely comments and thank you for reading the article.

Laura- So glad you and your child enjoyed the program with me. Hope you got your hands on the book. Feel free to go to the website and we can arrange for you to get the book signed!

Vishal- Chloe would find India absolutely amazing! Great idea... Rich history, incredible mythology and such colorful festivals and celebrations. Perhaps I should plan a research trip!

Andrei- I hope to have Chloe visit many countries! So many amazing archaeological sites, but also a chance for readers to enjoy the sights and sounds of other cultures. So much out there to explore!
