Highlight of the Week!

??? I have to share a highlight of my week! I was asked to come read my book in person to a great group of first graders in Lockhart, Texas, and of course, I agreed to share the story of Bernie’s Escape from Ong Island.

As you can see in the photo, the children were wonderful hosts for the reading; they were incredibly attentive and engaged, and they displayed a deep interest in protecting the environment.

This is what I love to do: meet people anywhere I can to share this story. This could be you! Contact me to schedule a reading of my book. A classroom, a local café, and a clean-up event are good places to learn about this topic. Virtual readings can also be arranged!

??? With Earth Day around the corner, this is the best time to incorporate this idea into lesson plans. What do you say? Let’s read, learn, and teach others about caring for the Earth.
