Author Visit at WPC Preschool, Los Angeles, CA
Last week I had a fun morning at the WPC Preschool in Los Angeles, California, with two sessions, first with the three-year-old group and then with the four-year-olds. This is an annual visit and I always enjoy seeing how the kids grow from year to year. With the younger children I always share my folding book, Who Has More? and the children count the eggs and baby birds on each page, going from one to seven and back again. I also read the first two stories of Wiggle and Waggle while one of the teachers acts out the story with my worm sock puppets. With the four-year-old group we talked about birds and feathers, measured their wingspans, and I showed them my new book Hatching Chicks in Room 6. And, it has become a tradition that I end by reading my tall tale, The Terrible Hodag and the Animal Catchers. As always, I had a good time and look forward to going back again next year.
