Virtual Author Visits

One of my favorite activities is meeting young readers on author visits. I live outside of the U.S.A., but you can meet me virtually via Zoom.

On a virtual visit we read a book together, discuss it, and I answer questions. Here are some programs I offer, but there are other
options too. Contact me and we’ll come up with the perfect plan for your group.

Exploring Nature in Israel

We read the story A FEATHER, A PEBBLE, A SHELL and go on a fun virtual trip in Israel! I share pictures from my ourdoors adventures, including exciting wildlife encounters. I also share about creating this book, including inspiration from childhood memories, and my art process from pencil sketches to final watercolor pieces.

We read PENNY AND THE PLAIN PIECE OF PAPER and continue to a fun hands-on creative workshop where we play with different types of paper, and create a collage, inspired by the story.
