Happy Birthday to Phyllis Reynolds Naylor!

The author of the 1992 Newbery winner Shiloh is celebrating a birthday today. I found these incredible stats about her work on the Simon & Schuster web site!
  • Books written: over 125
  • Stories & articles written: about 2,000
  • Number of rejection slips from publishers: 10,443
    Wow! Now let that be a lesson to all you aspiring writers out there. Even outstanding writers get rejected. Take heart and keep on writing.

Finally, if you will be teaching Shiloh this year, here are some resources that may help.
Thank you Ms. Naylor for Shiloh and all your other wonderful creations. Happy Birthday!
