Adventures on Amelia Island

“English teacher Jane R. Wood presents Adventures on Amelia Island: A Pirate, a Princess, and Buried Treasure, an adventure novel for middle school and junior high young adult readers that continues the saga of the Johnson family and their knack for personally experiencing connections with history. Black and white illustrations intersperse this engaging tale, which draws upon carefully researched history to mesh with the medley of adventure and legend. Also highly recommended is Wood’s previous young adult novel, Voices in St. Augustine.”

Midwest Book Review

Lost in Boston


“This is one of my favorite books written by Jane R. Wood. As a teacher and parent, it is important to find a book that has good family values and teaches about historical places and events in a way that holds the reader’s interest. Mrs. Wood again intertwined her characters into a believable story that takes place in the historical city of Boston. She has also incorporated great teacher resources to use during and after reading the book.”
