Here’s a little secret: Not only do I love writing stories, I also love READING stories, not just to myself, but out loud. When I taught elementary school I read aloud everyday using different voices for each character. The kids loved it and often brought in their own copies so they could read along. Reading aloud enlivened those stories an extra special way and got even the most reluctant readers interested in the magic of a good book.
As a writer and mom, I no longer work in the classroom, but I still love reading out loud. That’s why I’m thrilled to be participating in story time at our newest neighborhood coffee house.
If you live in the area, please bring your children and join me this coming Wednesday, July 17th at 9:30 am for story time at the Southside Roast in Cranford. (Take a peek at the picture for a preview of what I’ll be reading.)
Hope to see you there!
