What's Cooking, Amy?

Today author Amy Sklansky put on a chef’s hat & coat and “cooked” a book – three times for students at New Hope Elementary in Pennsylvania!

Into her large cooking pot went inspiration, rough drafts, revisions, pencil sketches, and more as she explained how an author’s idea becomes a published book. Amy used her fifth book, The Duck Who Played the Kazoo, as her primary example during this interactive videoconference.

This 45 minute videoconference is for students in grades 1st through 3rd. The participants interact with an author and develop an appreciation for both the creative writing and the publishing process during this interactive program.

Amy Sklansky's cookin'Author Amy E. Sklansky will put on a chef’s hat and coat to “cook” a book for participating students in this new videoconference for students in grades kindergarten through third! Into her large cooking pot go inspiration, rough drafts, revisions, pencil sketches, and more as she explains how an author’s idea becomes a published book. She will use her fifth book, The Duck Who Played the Kazoo, as her primary example, though she will also read from her other books. The participants will interact with the author and develop an appreciation for both the creative writing and the publishing process during this 45 minute program.

We are currently working on dates and times, as soon as we have them set, we’ll share with our readers. We’re looking forward to this addition (as well as another I’ll tell you about a little later) to New Links to New Learning.
