20-Minute Chat with an Author
Grades K- 6
During this 20-minute visit, I will pop into your classroom or library
or other group to introduce myself, read one of my books, and answer
questions about the writing process or any of my books. I'm happy to
take book requests (i.e. poetry selections or Where Do Chicks Come
From? or Halloween books, etc.).
I will also customize this upon request: more time for questions, no
time for questions, include one eggs-periment with the reading, etc.
Students will complete this program with a greater understanding of
and appreciation for the writing process.
"It is a real challenge to perform a virtual session with young children and ignite the same level of engagement and excitement as in live author visits. Amy did not disappoint; she had everyone's attention from the very first minute and it kept on getting better. The eggs-periment was an absolute hit and the whole session--pure energy!"

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit with our second graders. They found the experience truly amazing. They asked such thoughtful questions and your answers deepened their understanding of both the writing process and collaboration."
