(Extended Q and A)
After the large group presentation, Amy will visit individual classrooms ensuring that all students have an opportunity to ask questions in the comfortable classroom environment.
Students who have read or listened to Little Big Sister in class prior to the visiting author presentation have a deep connection with the book and often have thoughtful questions that are more suitably asked in the classroom setting rather than the larger group.
Please share this video message with your students once you’ve selected Little BIG Sister as a read-aloud and reserved a date with Amy for an in-person or virtual Visiting Author Presentation.
