Who knew that reading to 5th graders would be so much fun?? It was wonderful to share my books with these bright kids who asked and answered so many questions that I never get to discuss when reading to the K-3rd grade level… Even nicer, some of these 5th graders recalled the stories that I had read to them when they were in kindergarten…and they fondly remembered the stories!! Best of all, my daughter is the teacher!!!
I had a wonderful morning with the 2nd Graders at Grand View Elementary school, sharing some of my books and answering lots of wonderful questions!
Special thank you to Ms. Glassman for the invitation and for projecting the illustrations on the screen…
And also to my grandson who held the books for the children to see the illustrations…
We all decided that we should all try to treat others the way we would like to be treated… to follow the “Golden Rule”…and that 2nd graders can grow up to lead the world by being kind to one another.
I loved hearing from Abigail…
Her mother writes:
Here is my little angel, Abigail, checking out My Little Angel.
Here is her review:
“I loved it and I am bringing it to school today so I can show my class. I liked that it rhymed and that the angel made the girl sneeze and that an angel could be funny. I found all of the pictures and this is my favorite book by her.”
Thanks so much, Abigail! (and Mom)
Yesterday I thoroughly enjoyed being a Children’s Literature Guest Speaker at the College of New Jersey, Fellow SBPRA Author, Karen Scheuer, is a Professor there and invited me to speak to her class full of potential teachers and authors. It was refreshing and challenging to speak to older students, and approach writing children’s books from a different perspective.
Favorites were The Golden Rule and My Fingerpaint Masterpiece...
Karen Scheuer is the author of A Bug and a Wish, a popular children’s book. We have done several book signings together…
Storytime Pup is such a cute show for little ones… I’m pleased that The Magic Word is now available on the site!
I had a wonderful Book Reading at Fallsington Elementary School yesterday! Since Fallsington is a “PA School of Character”, my books about Consideration for Others and The Golden Rule were especially appropriate! I was able to share The Magic Word, Manner-Man, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys with the K-3 children and then My Fingerpaint Masterpiece with the entire school. I was delighted that one of the questions asked was “Where can we get these books?” (Fortunately, we are doing a Fundraiser with the school, so that signed books will be available!!)
Here’s the link for The Golden Rule on Storytime Pup!
