Especially for Elementary level---but can be enjoyed by all.

I have just been introduced to a charming new picture book, Celebrate the
fire within by a local author Kathy Larson.  The book was written for the
Olympics, but its message will go far beyond current events.  The book is
available at some local bookstores or North Star Publications at
801-221-0055.  (8.5x11, 32 pages, Hardcover $15.95, ISBN 1-930458-01-0)  The
author, Kathy Larsen, lives in Castledale and is available and eager to
visit schools to talk about her books and/or the writing process.  You can
contact her at 435-381-2585 or 435-749-0380 and email at taxman@etv.net
