During the K-2 virtual author visit, students will be involved with several activities which include interaction with my book, “Henry the Hungry Hound”, music and movement activities, and creating a kindness scavenger hunt.
In addition, I will share with students a sneak peek of my new book, “Harry’s Horrible Hair” and the process involved in creating a picture book, such as the illustrator’s sketches, edits and what “reviewing a proof” looks like.
