So, this year, the kidling has more home reading assignments, more art assignments, and just more... So, what is she using? PERN! She started with Dragonsdawn, and for art, she is doing a Bronze, Brown and Green fighting thread.

-Grins- It doesn't stop at Middle-School you know. I did my 3rd Year University Dissertation about Anne's Dragons. xD If she enjoys it that much, be prepared for more 'homework' becoming 'PERNwork'.

God for her! It's so much easier, and so nice to share with other people what you love. Maybe it will bring someone else to read Pern.

Sounds like she's enjoying it, which is good! And I once used Anne McCaffrey herself for a writing assignment I had to do in college. We had to choos esomeone we'd like to meet and write about what'd happen if we did. Managed to work in the kitchen table and some ideas based on the experiences of people who had met her.
