How wonderful that a big winter hat couldn't hide her SMILE over my book! THANK YOU, dear teacher, who shared this!

Thank You to the school that kindly let me share this peek at some of its students sharing my visit VIRTUALLY!
Sure a Virtual Visit isn't the same as being there in person but it's still TOGETHER TIME. Children have a chance to know me and hear some of the real adventure stories behind my books. And enjoy SCIENCE MAGIC with me! I certainly love every chance to share SCIENCE MAGIC. Plus, I have a chance to hear the children's questions--even better their ideas and WHAT IFs? Those inspire me to imagine new books.
Virtual is still time together.
Time to build a connection so reading my books are more chances for us to share--virtually. And time for me to be with the readers I'm writing for.
So, for now, Virtual is Vital!

Here I am ready to go! It's almost time to start the action sharing Science Magic and my books with Librarians in Texas--hosted by Permabound and Lerner Publishing.
Of course, I shared a lot of Behind-My-Books Stories too!
And this is my chance to say "THANK YOU, Librarians, for making reading wonderful experiences for children!"

What's a SANDRA MARKLE Virtual Visit like?
WHEN we share a Virtual Visit, I first send "BEFORE SANDRA MARKLE VISITS" materials. This is a great way to introduce children to my books and to me.
During my Virtual Visit, I share "Behind-my-Book" stories.
These include my three trips to Antarctica with the National Science Foundation and my adventures camping out with Adelie penguins.
I not only taught science for many years, I was also Ms. Whiz on TV in Atlanta, Georgia for a number of years. Children love the SCIENCE MAGIC so much they don't realize they're discovering solid, STEM-based science concepts.
I receive lots of positive feedback on that from children and teachers. It's a peek at all of my 200+ published books plus special surprises I've tucked inside for kids to discover, such as a 10,0000 year old woolly mammoth hair.
I prove VIRTUAL VISITS can pack a lot of WOW!
A few reviews:
