It's a Book!

It's my favorite way to launch a book: to celebrate the publication of my latest today, I Skyped with several hundred children, from Connecticut to Hawaii and states in between. Carl and The Meaning of Life is about how everything and all of us are connected — so, many, many thanks to the wonderful teachers and school librarians who participated and made today’s connections possible! I could not have asked for a better Book Birthday.,

The World Through Blue-Tinted Eyeballs

February 18th was World Read Aloud Day. What fun! I Skyped with eleven school all around the U.S. Here's a class whose teachers prepared for our visit by looking at the world through blue-tinted eyes... inspired by Penguin Young Readers' "Educator's Guide to the Works of Deborah Freedman".
