Last Friday I had the pleasure of visiting Darlene Andre’s fifth grade class in Illinois via SKYPE. They were in the middle of reading WHEELS OF CHANGE and had a lot of questions about the story, characters, setting and issues presented in the book. There are so many wonderful writers in the class and ALL the students were interested in learning about how to write and get books published. Many shared some of their own writer’s notebooks as well.
We discussed gender roles, when it’s okay to “break rules”, how to develop characters and setting, and many more topics based on the students thoughtful questions.
Thank you boys and girls for a wonderful visit to your classroom. And thank you for being interested in WHEELS OF CHANGE. Keep on writing so one day I can read YOUR books! ♥
