I've been working on a chapter book for eight to eleven year olds for a few years. The Weebly website above has sample chapters in a Choose Your Own Adventure format. Note: Cal is now Callie twin sister to Artie and in revision is the lead character of the two. I have not changed the gender of Cal on the Weebly website.
I want readers to laugh and learn about earth science through the adventures of twins Callie and Artie who love to dig. They carry on the geoscience family legacy of the Marbles and Granites. They love Mother Earth. Their Earth Crew promotes sustainability. Rocks, minerals, meteorites, the geosciences, and earth's dynamic changes excite their curiosity. Using Marble Dig Kit Tools will intrigue anyone who digs and searches for a "treasure." And if you look carefully, it might just be lying right in front of you...
If you said, "Yes,", then you are a digger. Diggers love to look for treasures. These may be interesting looking rocks, amazing crystals, gold, fossils, unique creatures, minerals, relics, artifacts, or even meteorites.
Some of us are pickers. We like to see what diggers discover. We can pick through what they leave. I am a picker.
