Comments From Some Of My Visits

Here are three letters from children who have written to me:




The children listened enthusiastically to your reading of your new book. You have an intimate, quiet style which perfectly suits your lyrical, poetic stories. You gave the children a complete and rare literary experience and you filled out their understanding of this story by speaking about the books “dedication” and the process by which you get your ideas. You personalized their experience by telling them anecdotes about your own children who inspired the storybooks. Meeting an author is a special event in a child's life, you have given these children something they will remember always.
