McElmeel, Sharron L.
This book aims to help library media specialists and teachers build a love of reading and promote reading comprehension, all while experiencing the fun and excitement of an author or illustrator visit. The book provides step-by-step help in organizing actual author/illustrator visits or "virtual" celebrations--including curricular activities. It covers all the necessary steps: from choosing the author/illustrator to obtaining books and resources to helping teachers publicize the event; events can be actual visits, "proxy visits,""read-ins," or visits by e-mail. The book details ways to help gather community support, plus new ways to obtain funding and involve co-sponsors. It includes reproducible forms to help make any event flow smoothly and also contains updated contact and related information in a resource section.
