Love this piano player Ken Gustafson who performed Jazz Fly live with me in Orlando!
Just posted video about the The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra's presentation of The Jazz Fly. Cool kids' show!
Feeling gratitude for all these schools that have invited me to perform!
I've learned that children stay more engaged in large groups when you give them something interesting to do (or shout!)
Do YOU know a child involved with video games? Share this video with parents you know and love!
A big fan of Alma!
Love seeing this in action
Delighted to perform at Family Day at the Park on Sat. An advantage of signing books and taking the stage there for year after year is that parents and children remember you. They recall which of your books they already have and which ones they are still interested in… I had so many pleasant conversations in English, and in Spanish, that next thing I knew, it was 3:00 PM.
This was a fun way to kick off my author assemblies when I visit elementary schools.
Just watched an insightful video in which Life Literacy President Margaret Eaton of Canada shares reading tips for parents. I'll list the the url below, but here is one tip I gleaned for parents with children learning to read and write: Young children may only read 100 words but comprehend thousands of words, so TELLING stories and TALKING about the books you share makes for a richer literacy experience!
Don't miss my newest video! I think you will like it.

I'm loving finding all these other authors and their read-a-louds!
A great video!
