I’m looking forward to celebrating the launch of Nita’s First Signs with stories, songs, crafts, snacks, and more! This event will be appropriate for all ages and accessible in American Sign Language and spoken English.
I’m thrilled to be participating in the 2017/2018 Read Local Challenge, sponsored by the MD/DE/WV Region of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators! The Read Local Challenge features traditionally-published authors and illustrators from Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and Washington D.C.
We invite all schools, libraries, homeschool groups, scout troops … groups of any size to join us! Take the challenge to read as many of these books from local authors/illustrators as you can, for a chance to win fabulous prizes, such as signed books and free Skype visits with one of our Read Local authors or illustrators. Then visit our websites to find our already-scheduled book signings and events, or to schedule a visit to your school or library.
Take the Picture Book Challenge, the Middle Grade Challenge, the Young Adult Challenge, or all three! Click here to learn more.
Part storytime, part book-signing event, and ALL fun!
Join Kathy MacMillan, author of Little Hands and Big Hands: Children and Adults Signing Together (Huron Street Press, 2013), as she shares hands-on activities that parents and caregivers can use every day to improve communication, reduce tantrums, and promote early literacy in children ages birth to six. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Children of all ages are welcome at these family-friendly events!
