You can download many of these materials today using the links below. Then fill out our contact form and I would be delighted to send you a free packet that includes these items and more to inspire your students – including posters and bookmarks from my books.
But be warned: You must handle them with care. Why? All these materials are supercharged with Contagious Imagination. On contact, you (and readers in your midst) will be instantly transported to bizarre, wondrous, and exciting imaginary worlds…which you may never want to leave.
