The book has been a hit with teachers and student alike.  Here’s what they said……

“What I liked most about the Jersey Trackers is that I’m learning so many new things that I never knew before about my own home.” – Hannah

  “I love the Jersey Trackers because it shows me and tells me a lot about New Jersey! It’s so cool that the kids go to places I’ve been before!” – Caroline

  “I love the Jersey Trackers series! It helps with our out-loud reading skills and I just can’t wait until next Thursday to read the next story! Thank you!” – Gianna

  “What I like most about Jersey Trackers is that it’s a fun and exciting story, and that it takes place in many different places that show how important New Jersey is.  Also it’s really funny how they base the story on a New Jersey legend called the Jersey Devil.” – Grace

 “The Jersey Trackers teaches you a lot about history. Every chapter is a new adventure. I really hope you make more Jersey Trackers.” – Jack

Consisting of eight chapters written by well-known New Jersey authors – Pat Brisson, Wil Mara, Wendy Mass, Jim Murphy, Trinka Hakes Noble, Margie Palatini, Pamela Swallow, and Joshua Tiprigan and illustrated by well-known New Jersey illustrators – Robert Blake, Leeza Hernandez, Gerald Kelley, Trinka Hakes Noble, Margie Palatini, Scott Rawlins, Karen Romagna, and Lena Shiffman, it’s a fun book focusing on the treasures of our state.
