My Visit to Morton Elementary in Omaha, NE

Morton Elementary went “to infinity and beyond” when they organized an Enrichment Day based on my author visit. It was amazing!

Every hour of Enrichment Day was designed to support one of my books. A representative from the Henry Doorly Zoo spoke with students about ocean animals, a program that supported “Sea Horse, run!”. Another talk entitled “Project Wild” included real toads and frogs in honor of my Polliwog book and was presented by the Ak-Sar-Ben Aquarium in Gretna, Nebraska. A violinist and a percussionist demonstrated instruments and talked to students about the orchestra. Both orchestra programs reinforced the educational aspects of our Kaleidonotes book.

Meanwhile, in Morton’s library I discussed how I wrote, illustrated and published my picture books.

Students’ art decorated windows and walls throughout the school, and I especially loved the welcome sign taped to the office window.

Morton’s librarian, Heidi Neumann, did a fantastic job organizing and hosting the event, and we are so grateful to Karen Adams for making our visit possible by handling the book sales on behalf of Barnes and Noble.
