Planning for World Read Aloud Day 2018 is already happening! Tons of kid lit authors will be offering free Skype visits on February 1st. We will be reading to schools across the globe. Visit Kate Messner’s author site for a complete list of participating authors.
On WRAD I’ll be reading from my books, giving sneak peaks into top secret projects, and recommending some of my favorite titles from other authors. And I’ll always answer student questions! If you would like to schedule a Skype visit just send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
THEY JUST KNOW: ANIMAL INSTINCTS would be a great choice for lower elementary classes. To read a sample, PEEK HERE!
THE MIDNIGHT WAR OF MATEO MARTINEZ would work best for grades 2-6. To read the first chapter, PEEK HERE!
Last year I visited 22 classrooms on five different continents… it was pretty rad! And since World Read Aloud Day is in February you may even get to meet my tortoise, Marigold! My current availability is listed below. If Thursday gets filled, I’m happy to schedule something with your class at another time. Happy reading!
