If you’d like to bring Anna into your Calgary elementary school, here’s how:

School visits may include: author reading of one of the Anna books and in-class discussions about writing, story ideas and sustainability/nature.

Pria and Alexander laughed at Anna. The whole class laughed at Anna. “You’ll see,” said Anna, “She’s real. And real big too.”

Anna’s family moves to a new neighbourhood. Anna doesn’t have any friends in this new place and dreads the long days of summer ahead. Anna discovers a pond in her neighbourhood and heads out to explore. She finds harebells and brown-eyed susans, honking geese and a scolding blackbird.

Anna finds a special place in nature and claims it as her own, coming often to sketch flowers and watch the butterflies. But when Anna returns one day to find her special place destroyed, she discovers an earth angel and the determination to restore her special place and the earth angel’s home. ~ Anna and the Earth Angel

Are you an elementary teacher in Calgary? Would you like to bring Anna into your school? Contact me to book a reading for your class or school. The book reading is great for grades 1 through 4. Classroom discussions are typically geared toward the grade 3/4s. My fee is $1 per student attending.

Anna is a champion of nature! She is a strong character with a big heart and an even bigger new friend. She inspires curiosity, exploration, a love of nature, tenacity and the power of community. She finds magic in everyday adventures, and sees the extraordinary in the ordinary.

While Anna works to restore her special place in nature in the story, Anna’s books will restore nature in real life. A tree is planted for every print copy of the book sold.
