My First Author’s Visit

On Thursday, April 4th, I read my soon to be published book aloud to my class. My mom brought a digital copy for my class to view while I read. 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 a couple 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. How long did it take for you to finish your story?

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 different versions of my story. 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 aloud to my class before.

Talk to you soon!
