Moore Teacher's New Children's Book Being Promoted by Scholastic Books

Moore Elementary enrichment specialist Brenda Maier’s latest book – “The Little Blue Bridge” – is being featured by Scholastic Books as part of its ALA Midwinter Scholastics Author Illustrator Preview Event Saturday, January 23.

Maier is the author of “The Little Red Fort,” which has been chosen as one of Scholastic’s top recommended titles for World Read Aloud Day 2021 on February 3.

Her new book is among those featured in a Scholastic email being sent to educators. Maier will join others in a webinar at 4 p.m. Saturday, January 23, to talk about their work. You can register for the webinar here: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_4iVjEZbNSLazknhgHCl-zw . The topic will be Empowering Young Voices through Illustrated Stories.

“The ‘Little Blue Bridge’ is a modern retelling of ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ and a companion book or a sequel to ‘The Little Red Fort,’” Maier said, adding ‘‘‘The Little Red Fort’ was planned as a single title, but my Scholastic editor asked me to write another Ruby story, so this is it.”
