2nd Grade Author Visit, March 26th, 2015

Second Grade Author Visit
Doreen Cronin
Thursday, March 26th, 2015 in the P.S. 32 library

Dear 2nd Graders & Parents,

We are excited to bring award-winning author Doreen Cronin to our library on Thursday, March 26th to speak to our Second Grade classes. Please note, this talk is during school hours and is for the students only but we want to let parents know so they can help their kids get familiar with Doreen’s books before the visit.

During her presentation, Doreen will speak to the kids about what they need to write a story and will work with them to come up with a few story starters of their own.

Before the visit
We have purchased some copies of the books shown above for the 2nd grade classrooms so students can become familiar with Doreen’s work before the visit. There are also additional copies in the library that students may check out.

To make the most out of Doreen’s visit:

  • Consider checking out Doreen’s books from the school or public library.
  • Talk up the visit before the actual date. The more excited the kids are about it, the more they’ll get out of it.

For more information, visit Doreen’s website at doreencronin.com, and check out teachingbooks.net. If you have any questions or suggestions for this author visit, please contact our P.S. 32 Librarian, Adam, at adam.marcus@ps32.org

We are looking forward to a great visit!

About the author

Since then, she has given up her law career and written many other bestselling picture books including Click, Clack, Peep!, Duck for President (New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Books (Awards), and Diary of a Worm.
