My visit to the New York French American Charter School in Harlem, NY.

The students’ of NYFACS enjoyed a lively reading of Corduroy Lost & Found at the schools’ June book fair.

I took part in the Spring 2017 auction for PSI 276 in Manhattan, NY.  A custom water painting was up for grab. As of April 2017 her item has been auctioned off.

“This event raises money for things that are not covered by the Department of Education, such as our music program, foreign language, teacher development, math coach, and classroom supplies.”

Check out my adventure at a pre-K read-aloud!



In February of 2017, I was the guest storyteller for a read-aloud with a pre-kindergarten class in Manhattan. The featured book was “A Wish for Corduroy.”
