Every summer Hollins students are invited to do a reading for kids from a neighborhood summer camp. This is one of my favorite events because it means a little people audience and some genuine feedback. I read my newest picture book manuscript, The Clean Show: A Bath Time Book, starring Cora and the dancing ducks. I taught the kids motions for the refrain, which includes "a wiggle and a CLAP and a be-bop scrub." The audience was 4-5-year-olds and they had fun shaking their booties. Meilani sat in the back with Daddy and yelled out the wiggle and clap on cue. She was especially proud I brought her plastic duckies along for props.
