Oliver Anole here. Karin is busy listening to an audio on blogging with John Kremer and Jo Ann Kairys. I got a little impatient (not my best quality but there you go). I want to write about a great day last week when we went to talk to students at Gulf High School in New Port Richey, Florida. Victoria Mudry invited us for Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida. Karin read to a lot of kids. Some were in high school and some were 4th graders from James Marlowe Elementary. I could tell by the many questions that kids of all ages like a good story. Many were interested in how a story and pictures became a published book. Karin answered questions and even suggested that kids can write books. And you know, quite a few kids had story ideas! So make a leap and write and I hope to hear your stories some day soon!
Thank you so very much for your wonderful book-talk. You truly motivated and engaged so many students- Elementary and High School.

You are so welcome.
And thanks for commenting.
I really value and enjoy the chance to talk to kids, and teachers and librarians and parents (those who truly care about their futures).
