Charlesbridge Publishing’s fall 2009 catalog came out this week, and in its listing for The Day-Glo Brothers, it included something I’d never really thought much about: curriculum links.

Here’s what the good folks at Charlesbridge say my book can be connected to in the classroom:

Language Arts: expository text, biography; chronological development

Science: physical science (properties of materials, light and color, chemical reactions); science and technology (technological design and application)

Social Studies: science, technology, and society (uses of fluorescent paints, technology in World War II)

Not bad, huh?
