Each year the Amelia Island Book Festival hosts 'Authors in Schools' for 27 schools in Nassau County, Florida. They purchase books for each student K-12 in their county and arrange for authors to come and read their books. We were fortunate to read at Yulee Primary School to over 750 students, age 4 years through 2nd grade. Each child received a copy of DLIMH!2, our goody bag, and dinosaur coloring sheets. Heather and I presented twenty-one times over the period of four days and loved every minute of it! Yulee Primary's Librarian is Kelley McCabe. She was an amazing help...

Traveling takes courage. Packing. Organizing. List Making. Traffic. Lines. Airports. Germs. Crowds. Weather Issues. Disgruntled People. Delays. Etc. I’m not a fan. One thing I do to offset the negative travel woes is pack a “Dinosaurs Living in My Hair” book and throw it in my backpack. Most times there is a perfect opportunity which presents itself for gifting it to an unsuspecting child. The “DLIMH” book, always wrapped with a bow, has a way of putting a positive spin on an otherwise not-so-fun activity. #CreateSmiles #KidsLoveBooks #WrappedWithABow #GiftsBringJoy #BePrepared #StayPositive #MakeMomentsCount #LiteracyforKids,inc. #EncourageKidsToRead #DinosaursLivinginMyHair #BackinNYC
