I read three of my children’s picture books to a class of Kindergarteners today and loved every minute of it. Their reactions to the stories and their questions after each were delightful. When I’d read all three I asked which was their favorite. Here was the vote count from the class of fifteen:
6 MZ’s Magical Day (My newest in hand.)
5 Wilbur the Duck Who Flew Upside Down (My top-selling book to date.)
4 Clyde and I (My first book.)
I’m encouraged that my newest stories are getting higher vote counts. I like to think I’m improving as a writer. I also like that all three stories were favorites to at least 20% of the youngsters.
I look forward to being invited to read for other classes of K-3rd Graders.
