He is an active member of the National Council of Teachers of English, and his academic publications number more than a dozen and include Reading to Make a Difference and the Ultimate Read-Aloud Resource. He also has written seven children’s books, including Three Hens and a Peacock and The King of Bees. Laminack lives in North Carolina. He plays saxophone and a Native American flute from a river cane. Follow his work at www.lester.laminack.com or on Twitter @lester_laminack
