Dear Teachers and Librarians,
I'd love to visit your school! Here are some activities that can go with my books.
TOY BOAT: Crafting toy boats with the same materials the little boy uses
THE DUCHESS OF WHIMSY: Making fancy party invitations like the one on the book's opening page
MATHILDA AND THE ORANGE BALLOON: Using metaphors to describe ourselves, like Mathilda the sheep does
PEANUT & FIFI HAVE A BALL: Studying different versions of the cover and designing our own
A FIRE TRUCK NAMED RED: Discussing: Can something old ever be better than new?
Interviewing an older person, then drawing his/her story in sepia tone, to match Papa's stories in the book.
- Looking at the process of making a picture book, from inspiration to publication
- Reading and writing book reviews
- Sharing some of my favorite picture books
I'd also be happy to work with you on a plan that's just right for your students.
Please contact me by email to discuss arrangements.
Hope to see you soon--
