World Read Aloud Day 2021
I am thrilled to volunteer to join your classroom to celebrate the joy of sharing stories with my picture book DOWN UNDER THE PIER! Everyone who signs up will recieve a packet of activites, from writing prompts to bookmark templates. This will be a fun and casual visit, about 20 minutes in total, looking something like this:
1-2 minutes: Quick intro and talk a little bit about my picture book, DOWN UNDER THE PIER
3-5 minutes: Read DOWN UNDER THE PIER to your class
5-10 minutes: Answer a few questions from students about reading/writing
1-2 minutes: Book-talk a couple of books I love (but didn't write!) as recommendations for the kids.
Please note the time slots listed are Pacific Standard Time.
My debut book, DOWN UNDER THE PIER, was published in April 2020 by Cameron Kids. In 2022, I have WHEN THE SKY GLOWS (Beach Lane/S&S) and CAVES (Scholastic) coming out. I love reading to kids! You can read more about me and my books on my website, www.nellcrossbeckerman.com
Lit World founded World Read Aloud Day in 2010 in celebration of the power of reading aloud to create community, amplify new stories, and to advocate literacy as a foundational human right.
