ED PERT AWARD Author Visit to Crestwood Street School
Signing the Author Wall at Crestwood Street School
Last Thursday I had an excellent author visit at Crestwood Street School in Rancho Palos Verdes, where I spoke to four groups of children grades K-6. They were enthusiastic during my presentations and asked terrific questions at the end. Crestwood Street School had won the California Readers Ed Pert Award and my visit was one of the benefits. The sponsor of the award is the Winnick Family Foundation. Crestwood Street School will also be receiving 100 books from the 2014 Elementary California Collection for their library. My books A Warmer Worldand Your Skeletal System are in the collection. I thank Gwen Davies for organizing my day and helping to prepare the students for my visit. At the end of the day I signed a special “Author Wall” in the library where I joined numerous other authors who have visited the school in the past. A photo taken of me during my visit will be added next to my signature.
