World Read Aloud Day

Last Wednesday was World Read Aloud Day which is a way for authors to Skype with students. I signed up on Kate Messner’s website (link above) and four teachers/librarians emailed to connect with me for a virtual visit. I ended up reading with 3 schools in Michigan, New York, and Virginia and it was a wonderful experience. The students enjoyed hearing ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON and asked wonderful questions. The feedback from each school following the event was gratifying and these pictures were sent by my contacts at the various schools. What a wonderful way to share writing with students.

By the numbers:

  • 3 schools
  • 9 classes
  • 4647 miles ‘traveled’
  • 2 hours

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" features a creative and curious girl who loves science, her little brother, and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a MG novel and several picture books with STEM elements and dogs.
