It's that time of year: Author Visit Time.  March through May are generally my busiest months for visitng schools.  That's one reason I love it when educators and parents make plans early, sometimes inviting me 8 to 12 months in advance.

The last two weeks, I've visited two beautiful schools in person: St. Helena Primary in St. Helena and Carmen Dragon Elementary in Antioch.  Reminder to self: plan to stop for dinner at the The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone next time I'm in St. Helena.  Beautiful on the outside and I'm sure scrumptious on the inside. 

This week I've also skyped with graduate students at SUNY's Brockport, New York campus and helped elementary students celebrate BOOKFEST in Shigawake-Port-Daniel, Quebec. It's great fun to skype and from my feedback extremely successful, but I always wish I could step into the classroom and chat or take some fun photos as we did at Carmen Dragon this week.
