I still remember up until 2004, when I retired as a children's librarian, we would celebrate this special event in November. Little did I know back then that I'd still be celebrating it every year as a published author. (In 2008 it was moved to May)
This year I had the great pleasure of reading my latest book, "Baby on Board, How Animals Carry Their Young." with 2nd graders at Orange City Elementary. I use the word "with" and not "to" because the principal, Charles Bynum, asked second grade teachers to chose 15 students to read the book "to" me and the ninety 2nd graders in the audience, performing a Readers' Theater. There was some great interaction as together we celebrated a love of reading.
P.S. For free downloadable activities that go with my new book see:
