For grades K-3: SENSES. My picture book, The Better Tree Fort, features a father/son relationship. I also share an interest in birding with the characters in this story. I will include a fun mini-lesson about local bird songs during my presentation that encourages young writers to use all their senses.
There will be a FREE book draw of Jessica Scott Kerrin’s books.
