Dear Second grade students and Parents,
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 Shana’s books before the visit.
Before the visit
W e have purchased copies of Shana’s books for each 2nd grade classroom and there are additional copies in the school library.
To make the most out of Shana’s visit
• Consider checking out their 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 about the author, visit her website shanacorey.com. If you have any questions or suggestions for this author visit, please contact our school Librarian, Mr Marcus, at email@example.com
Thank you for your participation—we’re looking forward to a great visit!
