The world has begun to take stock in a few good things that have happened during the pandemic. I would include my Zoom visit with the International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) as one of those surprise blessings. I had such a good time working on list poems with them. Take a look at some of their creations. A special thank you to Ms Catherine Bae, their amazing librarian, who organized this visit. The poem below is entitled SUMMER ROCKS by Mr George’s Second Grade. Isn’t it grand?!
It’s now over a week ago, but my WRAD experience was amazing this year. I loaded all of my events into my Google Calendar so that I could easily find the link to each Zoom or Meet. That was definitely helpful. I also printed off a sheet for each school so I knew which book or poem we were working on. With 7 visits in a row, there wasn’t time in between each one for any hesitation. From Colombia to Queens, El Paso to Midlothian, Virginia, I had a blast creating poems and showing a “sneak peak” of my next children’s book, For Every Little Thing (Eerdmans Publishing), co-authored with June Cotner. It’s safe to say, I can’t wait until next year.
