Story times in schools and bookstores

I'd be delighted to visit you in San Francisco and share my books, 10 Days Till my Summer Vacation! and 10 Days Till my Birthday!

My engaging and playful presentations last 30 to 75 minutes and are addressed to children from preschool to 1st grade.

  • THE BOOKS

10 Days Till my Summer Vacation! is a countdown book that anticipates summer vacation through a playful and interactive approach and is designed to help young children develop their understanding of time. Based on a memory game, the book features a growing list of objects, all evocative of summer vacation, and invites children to get ready for the departure day! Coloring the objects contributes to strengthening memorization in a fun way. The concepts of color and search-and-find are also featured.

10 Days Till my Birthday! presents a selection of the greatest ingredients of a birthday party. Coloring, search-and-find Teddy, playing with sounds and repetition are part of the fun.
