I have had rave reviews about your visit from teachers and students. Your presentations engaged and inspired the students. I have first graders who are able to quote your words because they were listening so intently. A fourth grader commented that you didn’t talk over the students’ heads, but spoke so they understood.
You could tell from the questions, many from the adults, that the process was of broad interest to a broad range of ages.... Your whole program was just chock full of information and you presented it in a way that kept both the children and adults engaged.
Your slide presentation kept the students interested and focused, and your easy-going manner allowed students to immediately relate to you and want to know more about you.... I sent a letter to Candlewick Press letting them know how much we enjoyed our visit with you and would be happy to recommend you to other interested schools.
Parents stopped me all over town for several days after the event to tell me how much their children enjoyed it, and how much they liked meeting you.
You held everyone’s attention for the entire presentation and the age span was about 5 to 85! ... I can’t remember another visiting author captivating young readers more than you did.
