For children Aged 4 to 7, Pat’s 20+ years as an educator make her uniquely qualified for presenting to children. She reads with great expression and keeps the children engaged throughout the story hour.

Pat enjoys working with children in grades 2 through 5. She guides students through the process of writing and publishing the two books and includes information on word choice, editing, and revision. Pat stresses the importance of her writing critique group, and shares actual critiques with suggestions for cutting words, rephrasing and developing a story arc. Students learn about the illustrator and view original artwork.

Pat wrote a “reader’s theater” version of The Stitches Fairy. It is written at a 2nd grade level. The trunk show includes fun props and scripts of the story. Kids love reading and acting out the roles of Claire, Dad, and the fairy.
