Overview

Arizona Way Out West & Witty: Library Edition's target audience is grade-school children; yet, it is as appealing to adults as it is to kids! Highlights of Arizona's history are punctuated with true but gross, humorous, interesting and witty stories and facts about the Grand Canyon State. In addition to all the important stuff about Arizona, readers learn: What Geronimo and yawning have in common, What a glass eye has to do with Phoenix being Arizona's state capital, How many teachers it would take standing head-to-toe to go from the bottom to the top of the Grand Canyon and much, much more! But it takes more than amusing writing and fascinating facts to keep children's attention, so AZWOWW's award-winning creative team added recipes, crafts, games and science to the mix. Arizona Way Out West & Witty: Librarian Edition's activities do not tempt children to write or mark in the book -- there are no coloring pages or fill-in-the-blanks. This library edition, which was designated an official Arizona Centennial Legacy Project by the Arizona Historical Advisory Commission includes a complete curriculum kit. Winner of ONEBOOKAZ for Kids 2012.

Meet the Author

Conrad J. Storad is a national award-winning author of more than 40 science and nature books for young readers. His newest titles are Arizona Way Out West & Wacky, and Arizona Way Out West & Witty, fun history/activity books. AZ Witty was named OneBookAZ for Kids in 2012 by the Arizona State Library. AZ Wacky was a national finalist for the 2012 Benjamin Franklin Award for nonfiction. USA Book News named his Rattlesnake Rules as 2011 Best Children's Non-Fiction Picture Book.

Michael Hagelberg couldn't make up his mind about what he wanted to be when he grew up. He had a strong affinity for science and natural history, but art was also tempting. He eventually gave in to art. Hagelberg began his career as a designer with agency and freelance work after graduating from Northern Arizona University, but the desire to combine science and art soon took him into educational publications. Today he illustrates for magazine and book publishers, as well as develops fine art.

Exley, a member of the National Federation of Press Women and National Speakers Association, won 50-plus awards for editing and writing. She co-authored Arizona Way Out West & Wacky, Arizona Color Me Wacky and Arizona Way Out West & Witty, which won 2012 ONEBOOKAZ for kids. She is the SanTan Sun News editor; editor, writer and publicist for Five Star Publications; and a former editor and writer for Arizona Parenting, Houston Parent, LA Parent and Ahwatukee Monthly, among other publications.
