We always have a blast at events, which is good because in May we had four of them!
The first event we had was a school visit to Wickliffe Elementary in Upper Arlington, OH. During this show we brought along Morgan Stanley (wife of author Christopher Stanley) so that she could lead the students in yoga as we did an exercise with The Tree Watcher! Afterward, we had the students create their own story which Alex illustrated in real time. Bonus-Christopher's daughter (and Alex's God daughter) Olivia is a fourth grader at Wickliffe, so she was able to help lead the students in the yoga exercise.
Our next event was at the school carnival for Darbydale elementary. We had so much fun meeting so many different families from around central Ohio. Thank you to everyone who stopped by and picked up copies of our books!
Next, authors Christopher Stanley and T.D. Ashcraft were invited to participate in the Books for Bedtime charity event. What an honor to participate in such a great cause and for so many different people to be interested in our stories.
Our final event in May was a school visit to O.L.P.H. in Grove City, OH! The enthusiasm from the kids was contagious! We talked about all the different ways they use their imaginations every day, and they helped us create a monster that will make an appearance in our next book! We had a blast and can't wait to return for another visit.
What a month! We had a great time, and can't wait for our upcoming events this summer.
