School Visits and Bookstore/Library Events

We loved having Julia Richardson visit our classroom and share her story with our class. Her story of overcoming difficulties and disappointment was inspiring to hear. Students were engaged from start to finish. I would highly recommend! L. Simonds, 3rd grade teacher, Mattawan Public Schools

I enjoyed having Julia read and engage with my students. The presentation was funny, engaging, encouraging and heartfelt. My students were giggling, smiling and thinking throughout. After, my kiddos wanted to use our writing time to answer the questions that were presented. One student raised their hand and said, “She was told no but she had grit!” K. Hopkins, Kindergarten teacher, Kentwood Public Schools 

The kids absolutely loved it and couldn’t stop talking about it. I thought my 4th graders might think the coloring sheet was too young for them, but they were all coloring it and loved showing me their work! I wouldn’t change anything at all! K. Sills, 4th grade teacher, Mattawan Public Schools

 

This was a perfect collaboration all about books and dandelions! Julia was welcoming and prepared with stories and props. All the feedback we received was positive. We would highly recommend!! Jeri Thomas, 2 Dandelions Bookshop, Zoom visit

Hello! I love to visit children and encourage them to believe in their dreams. Inside each of us lives a miracle. When I was young, I was in the lowest reading group and wrote every letter upside down and backwards. Thanks to dedicated teachers I overcame a severe case of dyslexia. My story to publication will inspire children to believe with hard work and determination anything is possible. I've presented at schools, libraries, and bookstores. I would love to visit you!
