Thursday was my second time participating in World Read Aloud Day. As usual, it was a whirlwind day of Skype sessions with classrooms across the USA and Canada. I read a few of my books (THE WRONG SIDE OF THE BED, YOU ARE NOT A CAT!, and A BIG SURPRISE FOR LITTLE CARD), shared some of my illustration process, and even snuck in a sneak peek at my next project.
There's nothing like sharing books with kids. Even over the internet, their enthusiasm is contagious. I'm thrilled to share a couple of highlights of the day, especially the video above from the kindergartners (and their awesome teacher, Marci Johnstone) at the Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawaii. I almost cried! Special thanks to all the teachers and librarians who organized our day!
