With Jennifer Best, Teacher (left) and Susan Bougetz, Librarian (right)
A week ago I had a very enjoyable author visit at the Platt Library in West Hills, California. My visit was organized by children’s librarian Susan Bougetz who promoted the event to all the local elementary schools and collected a huge pile of my books available in the library for check-out.

We met in the community room where I had a nice audience of parents and children who all enthusiastically participated in singing the Wiggle and Waggle song and having their wingspans measured. I ended by telling the story of how Hatching Chicks in Room 6 had been inspired by my visit to Haynes School, which is not very far from the library. Earlier in the afternoon I stopped by Haynes to visit Mrs. Best and this year’s students in Room 6. Outside the classroom I saw the pen where the chickens (who once had been chicks) have now grown up and are laying eggs.

I thank Susan Bougetz for inviting me to the Platt Library and doing such a good job of organizing my visit.
