FALL FUN – Back-to-School-Visit

Hard to believe the new school year is well underway, but it’s a great time of year to visit schools to inspire students to have a year filled with reading and writing.  Here’s what I’ve been up to:

Fun Times in SAN ANTONIO:  I had the awesome pleasure of visiting 9 schools in the San Antonio area:  Kuentz Elementary, Knowlton Elementary, Kay Franklin Elementary, Scarborough Elementary, St. Anthony Catholic School, Blattman Elementary, Leon Springs Elementary, Aue Elementary, and Locke Hille Elementary.  What a fantastic week of spending time with readers in the great state of Texas!

Welcoming librarians who even serve authors a wonderful breakfast!

And students who write touching thank you notes . . .

It all makes me even more thankful that ALWAYS, ABIGAIL is a nominee on the Texas Bluebonnet List!  Thank you, Texas!!

Back in Illinois, I had the pleasure of visiting Henry Puffer School in Downers Grove.  Fun to talk about THIS JOURNAL BELONGS TO RATCHET (A Rebecca Caudill Nominee – so excited to be on my home state’s reading list this year!  Thank you, Illinois!) and show students that building an engine is a lot like building a story.

The Henry Puffer students will be doing “One School, One Journal” this year and setting out on their own writing adventure.  A big thank you to Anderson’s Bookshop for providing books for the book sale.

I’ll end the post with a few back to school bargains.  Looking for an inexpensive middle grade ebook?  Try ALWAYS, ABIGAIL

September is almost over, but I have a feeling my good times with school visits have only just begun.  I can’t wait to head out and visit more schools, make even more middle grade friends, and inspire them to have a great year of reading and writing!

Happy Reading & Writing,

Nancy
