What a Welcome!

One of the best parts of this job is spending time with students and teachers. They really go above and beyond to make us feel welcome and show love for reading and Carmen’s books. Just look at this fabulous artwork!

Out of the Mouths of Babes

One of the BEST things about this job is kids. Kids are AMAZING! After many of our visits, teachers and kids send us artwork and letters letting us know how we did. If you’re on the fence about hosting an author visit, check out the feedback below from some of the kids at Blanchard Elementary in Columbus, GA.

While we don’t have room to post all of our letters, Kids, please know that Carmen reads EVERY SINGLE ONE. They really do make her day, so keep them coming! We will continue to post kid letters as we get them!

"We all loved your story and we no theres more you know theres more so come tell the rest..."

"Thank you for making me laugh till I cry. I almost had a heart attack! Please pay for my medical bill."
