Subject: Oregon Joke book for Kids

Interested in a way to help connect kids with the state in which they live in a way that makes them laugh at the same time? The American Riddles series of books might be just the way!

Hello from Alaska! My name is Jeff Brown and I've spent the past few months compiling and creating a series of 50 joke books, one for each state. Along with the jokes are facts and bits of information that help connect the joke with the state, so it makes each book educational as well as entertaining.

As many people are trying to do, I'm trying to connect with children's librarians across the country and am looking for a bit of help. Can I send you a PDF version of one of the books - pick a state, any state. If you like it, as many folks in the library world have already, it'd be great if you could help spread the word. If not, well, I'm pretty sure you'll at least get a few chuckles out of it.

The website is www.AmericanRiddles.com. It has a sample riddle from each state, plus information on how to order the books.

Thanks so much for your time!
