World Read Aloud Day 2017

On February 16, I participated in World Read Aloud Day. I skyped with students in Wisconsin, Georgia and New Jersey. What fun! After reading SALAD PIE (and singing along with me--one group in New Jersey had a great new tune. I wish I had recorded it!), students had a chance to ask me questions. They asked me all sorts of interesting things: if Maggie was just like me, why I loved MARVIN K. MOONEY (a favourite childhood book of mine), if I would write a book called Sandwich Stew, and what the weather was like here in Michigan. I had a blast!

Thank you to LitWorld for creating this event and to Kate Messner for giving authors a great way to connect with schools for this event.
