  • Jane Conner

    The book looks very interesting Karen, I’m a Logan teacher and we are always looking for current and topical local information about Logan to talk to our students about. Logan receives poor media exposure from time to time and I hope this book helps shine the true light on the wonderful and diverse communities we have living in Logan.

  • Hi Jane,
    Thanks so much for your support as a Logan teacher.
    I hope you’ll be one of many teachers and schools who embrace Ready.Set. Discover Logan.
    I will be uploading teacher notes and kids activities in March. Please look out for them.
    Many Thanks,
    Karen 🙂

  • Hi Karen,
    I’m very excited to see your new book. I’ll phone the library tomorrow to book my place at the launch. Can’t wait.
    What a great initiative.
    Best wishes,

  • Hi Norah,
    Thanks so much for your enthusiastic support for Ready.Set. Discover Logan … and ALL my children’s books.
    You brought tears to my eyes with JOY!
