In a continuation of last week's post, I offer more pointers for a preschool author visit:
1) Many preschools have multiple ages. Begin your presentation by reading to all children. Save question and answer sessions, etc. for older children (ages 3 & 4)
2) Come up with some type of games, song, etc. to get children involved. My main character sneezes throughout my book. I divide kids into two groups (red group and purple group). When I say corresponding color, that group says "achoo, achoo."
3) Prepare for lots of hugs. Little kids love visiting authors!
