READING TAKES YOU EVERYWHERE: Author Visit at Encino/Tarzana Library for Summer Reading Program

Encino/Tarzana Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library

Yesterday afternoon I spent a wonderful hour with kids and their parents at the Encino/Tarzana Public Library in Los Angeles giving a presentation as part of the summer reading program for kids. The theme this year is “Reading Takes You Everywhere” and my books are a perfect example of all the different places you can go when you read about animals. We started with a trip to Africa when I read A Zebra’s World and we all did a Lion Hunt together. We then talked about birds and I measured the kids wingspans. The kids also helped me sing the Wiggle and Waggle song, along with my Wiggle and Waggle sock puppets.

With the Star Volunteer

During my visit I enjoyed meeting Jennifer, the new head librarian as well as one of the teen volunteers who helped with the program, and one of the devoted Star reading volunteers who works with kids at the library every week. I thank Shokoufeh Moghta, the children’s librarian for inviting me to the library and organizing the event. I know it was enjoyed by all!
