Note to teachers: After twenty-five years of doing them, I have retired from making school visits. However, I still answer all snail and e-mail from my readers. And I am also willing to do conference calls or online chats with your students and I am on SKYPE if that will help. I can be reached at If I am in your neighborhood for a conference or signing or storytelling presentation, I hope you will stop by and visit for a while.
