Dallas Kids Read!

A Great Day at the Dallas Kids Read! Event 2012

What an honor to be included with several notable children’s authors in the Dallas Kids Read! Event on Monday, July 9.  This annual, day-long festival celebrates literature and imagination as authors interact with the students at several Dallas schools.  
The staff and students at the Stevens Park School welcomed me, and together we had fun play-acting as audience volunteers took on the roles of presidential candidates, campaign managers – and even the President!  I appreciated all the warmth and hospitality extended to me that day, and was excited to meet such an enthusiastic group of our country’s young writers and future leaders.
