IT HAPPENS IN THE MONTH OF OCTOBER by Ellen Jackson

All about October, including weather, animal behavior, plant growth, zodiac signs, birthstones and flowers, holidays, historic events, famous people born that month, and a story to wrap it all up.

WELCOME!


"Simple, rhyming text introduces eleven animals and the surprising tools they use, including an octopus that hides in a coconut, a dolphin that protects its nose with a sponge, and a deer that bedecks its antlers with heaping piles of mud and grass.

TOOLING AROUND is a National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) recommended book.

THE MYSTERIOUS UNIVERSE by Ellen Jackson

“Strange as it may seem, 96 percent of the universe seems to be made of two ingredients that no one understands.'” "...a shining addition to the Scientists in the Field series.." Kirkus, (starred review)

"[The book] focuses on viscerally fascinating celestial subjects: supernovae, dark energy, and black holes. These are fairly complex matters, but Jackson’s treatment makes them accessible through reasoned explanations and comparisons, helpful diagrams, and, of course, dazzling photographs of the universe’s most awesome spectacles." Booklist

Ellen and Abby

Hello. I'm Ellen Jackson, and I'm the author of more than 60 books for children. Being an author is the best job in the world. I get to go to work in my pajamas, write for a few hours, then spend time with my dog and husband, who also works at home (the husband, not the dog). Abby (the dog) sleeps under the computer and keeps my toes warm when I’m writing.

My books have won many awards, but the best part of my day is getting a letter from a child who has read and enjoyed something I've written. Reading has always been an important part of my life, and I hope it's an important part of yours.
