Back to my Virtual Visits Page


(Last updated November 22, 2018)

Thanks for your interest in having me visit on World Read Aloud Day! NOTE: This page is an unlisted page. Please do NOT share it with anyone else without my permission, thanks.

My 15-minute Skypevisit will consist of the following:

Approx. 3 minutes: I'll introduce myself and talk a little bit about my books, then I'll read aloud one of my picture books (your choice).

Approx. 5 minutes: I'll read aloud one of my picture books.

Approx. 4 minutes: I'll do a fun drawing demo.

Approx. 3 minutes: I'll answer a few questions from students about reading, writing and illustrating.


Ideally, you will be used a wired connection rather than wireless - I have found that wireless connections often resut in lag, and that can suck the energy out of a Skypevisit plus can cause communication issues.
