Feedback from Readers
Kathy visits with one of her readers, Vickie Peacock.
“I have my autographed copy of H is for Houston written by my new favorite author, Kathy Slaughter! I met Kathy when she substituted in my classroom probably 20 to 25 years ago. I wrote “Great Sub” next to her name on my personal sub list. That great sub became a great teacher at our school, then a great reading specialist, and now she’s a great children’s book author! Kathy, your friends will be rooting for you! Good luck!”
“Enjoyed our bedtime story tonight. He insisted on reading it to me and asked all sorts of great questions!”

“Thank you so much for coming today. It was a pleasure to meet you, and to hear you talk to the students. Your book, H is for Houston, is just perfect for introducing second graders to Houston, and it’s detailed enough that fourth graders will certainly learn as much from reading it as I did! I also appreciate the way that you encouraged the children to read and to write throughout their lives.”
Karen Schiver, Cummings Elementary School Librarian
Writers are also readers. Michael Connelly is one of my favorite authors, and I enjoyed meeting him at a recent signing at Murder by the Book in Houston.
Harlan Coben, on right, is another of my favorite authors. My husband George and I enjoyed meeting Harlan at Murder by the Book, where he was signing copies of his latest book.
