All posts in school visit

Come join me this Saturday for a special event at the Bookshelf Cinema in Guelph.

We’ll be showing the winning video of a contest for the schools of Wellington County.  Entries for a visit to a class singing “Dashing Through the Snow” will be shown on the big screen with the winner to be announced.

Winner of the contest for me for a day in a local school will be drawn.

Lots of Prizes and a sing along to the big screen.
See you there!

Bookshelf Cinema, Quebec St. Guelph.Scholastic Christmas Card 2014

Over the years of writing and illustrating children’s books I’ve been fortunate to visit schools and libraries across Canada and into the high Arctic.  Yet sometimes the places closest to home get left out.
Because I believe strongly not only in the beauty  of books and the magic of reading, but also in the future of book stores,  I want to, with the help of a lucky girl of boy,  give a local school a present:
I will be giving away a Day in a School to any elementary school in the Guelph area.*
From now until December 20th, come in and fill out a ballot at the Bookshelf.
No purchase is necessary.
I will be at the Bookshelf Saturday Dec 8, noon until 3 to meet and sign copies of ‘A Porcupine in a Pine Tree’
Hope to see you there.
*Aberfoyle, Rockwood, Fergus &  Elora  included.
Value  $750.
Presentation date to be arranged by mutual agreement  between January  and March 2012
Winning school will be notified 8:30 a.m. December 21st.
















Last week I had the pleasure of four days visiting 12 schools and the library in beautiful St. Albert thanks to the generous support and sponsorship of the St. Albert Rotary Club. Read more…

Hello St. Albert!  I’m off to visit schools and libraries in St. Albert, Alberta this week and very excited to be going.  Tuesday to Friday will be filled with sharing my work and books, along with drawing dragons and a fun filled evening at the Library.  Friday morning it will be my pleasure to say thanks to the great folks at the St. Albert Rotary for sponsoring these next few days!  My pots are packed, lots of original artwork in my portfolio, and as soon as Cocky Locky’s legs are glued, my birds will be in their box for another trip across the country.  If it’s one of your schools I will be visiting, get ready for an hour of fun (and of course…learning).  No test at the end, just the hope that you will be inspired to read, draw and use your imagination to be as creative as you possibly can.  See you soon!
