My First Author’s Visit

img_0985On Thursday, April 4th, I read my book aloud to my class. My teacher, Mrs. Smith, gave me the microphone so my class could hear me better. After I finished reading the book, my classmates clapped, and then they started asking me questions. These are some of the questions they asked me, and this is what I said.

1. Why did you choose that topic?

I chose this topic because I went there. I wrote about it because I knew a lot about it.

2. When was your book published?

It was published on my birthday.

3. How long did it take for your book to get published?

It took a long time, almost one year.

My mom started talking about how you publish a book after I answered all of the questions. She is a librarian.  My mom showed my classmates the copyright with my name in the book. She also showed them the first version of my book. She then showed my class stuff the editor wanted to change in the book. Then, kids asked my mom questions and even my teacher asked my mom a question.

When it was over, I felt proud of myself because I never read a book aloud to my class before.

Talk to you soon!
