Jerry Pallotta is Visiting!!

You may recognize some of these fantastic titles:
The Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar Fractions Book
Apple FractionsCount To A MillionHershey's Milk Chocolate Multiplication Book
All of which I have read to my class this year!  And, now I get to have them signed by the author.  Score!

You might also know him from some other books (not math related...but still fantastic):

He writes the "Who Would Win" Books:

Who Would Win? Series Set of 7 Books by Jerry Pallotta and Rob Bolster (Who Would Win? Tarantula Vs Scorpion; Who Would Win? Komodo Dragon Vs. King Cobra; Who Would Win? Lion Vs Tiger; Who Would Win? Killer Whale Vs Great White Shark; Who Would Win? Hammerhead Vs Bull Shark; Who Would Win? Polar Bear Vs Grizzly Bear; Who Would Win? Tyrannosaurus Rex Vs Velociraptor)
And here are a few more:
Who Will Plant a Tree?
Product Details
F is for Fenway: America's Oldest Major League Ballpark (Sleeping Bear Alphabets) 
I'm very excited for my students to meet him.  After our students get to meet him and learn from him, the teachers are getting a chance to have an afternoon in-service with him.  I'm so excited!

I can't wait to come back and tell you all about it :)

Do you have a favorite Jerry Pallotta book?  Is there something you would like for me to try to ask him?
