Virtual Author Visit on Your Own Schedule!

Skyping with us last year
Suzanne Slade was kind enough to skype with one of our second grade classes last year and the kids loved it! Now, she has created two YouTube videos that are really great and could function as an author visit on your own time for free! The first one, What Authors Really Do, describes what she does, where she works, how she writes, and more. The second one is a Q&A of the top 10 questions kids always ask her. I enjoyed both videos and she does a great job keeping them engaging and adds some humor too. With over 90 books under her belt, she is certainly an accomplished author! It is interesting for kids too to see a mostly non-fiction author since author studies are usually done with fiction authors. Check it out!
