tucson festival of books 2013

The Tucson Festival of Books inspires me each year, and the 2013 event was no different in that regard. I am still sifting through my notes and compiling my “must read” list.

Some of the highlights:

painted sky school visit

I enjoyed sharing my books and a little bit of my writing goods with three classes of 4th and 5th graders at Painted Sky Elementary School in Oro Valley, Arizona. Best of all, I loved (trying) to answer their intriguing questions.

In the evening, I signed and sold copies of my books, “Animals That Live in Groups” and “Gross Recipes.” Students who visited my table had the chance to make their own thumbprint animal bookmark! It was a great day.
