School visits are a great way for kids to connect with the authors and illustrators behind their favorite books. Author/illustrator presentations can inspire young writers and artists and enrich the curriculum.
Inspired by the wonderful videos I saw on TeachingBooks.net, I hatched a plan to create a series of short videos that had a professional look without a professional price tag.
First, I organized a group signing event for seven authors and author-illustrators in my area. All of them had new picture books coming out around the same time as my title When Rain Falls.
