Yeah! Diane and I must be doing something right then, our kids love non-fiction books as much as they love fiction.

I am very impressed with what you are doing. I’d like to see you include interviews of nonfiction authors. Here are some great authors for you to consider: Gail Gibbons, Seymour Simon, Sy Montgomery, Russell Freedman, Diane Stanley, Albert Marrin, David Adler, and Jim Murphy.
