The Perfect Author Visit

I had the PERFECT author visit to Hampden Meadows School in Barrington, Rhode Island.

Librarian Jane Austin did everything right. She could write the book on HOW TO HOST THE PERFECT AUTHOR VISIT.

Many thanks to the fourth grade teachers who worked so hard to prepare the students...

...and to the awesome fourth graders at HMS who read my books, asked great questions, drew great pictures and made me feel so welcome!

Thank you so much for coming to our school. We really enjoyed your examples of how to "show" and not "tell" in your writing! We will be sure to put that into use in our own writing!!
