Online Reads and Resources

With everything going on, I’ve been asked a lot if I’ll be doing read-alouds of my books. I am working with my publisher, Simon & Schuster, to put something together, but in the interim, I wanted to update you with some guidelines and resources.

For using my books (or any Simon and Schuster books) please be guided by the following: 

You can also find these guidelines on the Simon & Schuster site here.

For my Going Wild books, please use the guidelines from HarperCollins here.

Here are some online resources for you to use with your students:
