Visit to Young Authors of LA’s Best
I recently had another successful visit with students in the LA’s Best Young Authors Program, this time at Maurice Sendak School in North Hollywood. I was greeted with a colorful welcome poster made by the children in grades K-2 and could see that they clearly had enjoyed dipping their hands in bright paint to make the design. I spoke first to the younger grades and shared with them A Zebra’s World, Wiggle and Waggle and Who Has More? Who Has Fewer? Then, with the older children (grades 3-5) I presented my slides and talked about my life as a writer and how I get ideas. As the children lined up to leave, I noticed that several of them were carrying musical instruments. I am pleased to know that they are having so many opportunities to develop their talents and creativity. Perhaps some of them will grow up to be writers or musicians someday!
