Author Visits

How would you create a book? Which words require pictures? If you were the artist, what would your characters look like? I like to read a few pages of a book without showing the illustrations, so that students can imagine how they might illustrate the story. I use simple craft projects and templates to encourage kids to make their own characters and adventures.

One half hour virtual visit is $350.
