Skype visit with Corey Rosen Schwartz

My 8th grade LA Enrichment class and I had the distinct pleasure of skyping with author Corey Rosen Schwartz a few weeks ago.

Most of my students had never skyped with an author before, so they were quite excited to do so.  Corey talked about her journey in becoming a writer and the process of having her books published.  She also gave us tips on reading books aloud and sharing with others.

My students were surprised to find out that Corey didn't have a choice in who illustrated her books.  We loved hearing about the amazing Dan Santat and the 2 books he has illustrated that she has written (and that there will be a third!).  We even heard about their newest book, Ninja Red Riding Hood!

Corey shared some pictures and parts from her newest book, Goldi Rocks and the Three Bears with us as well.

It was fascinating to see and hear about the sketches that are sent to her (in printed format) from her publisher from the illustrator.


Some of my students wanted to tell Corey THANKS on their blogs.  Their thank yous may be short and sweet, but the sentiment is there.

Corey:  Thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to skype with me and my students!  I know it is an experience they will remember forever.  You are an amazing author and I can't wait to read your next book(s)!
