What is your favorite thing about school visits?
When I see the lightbulb go off in young children’s brains, and they are excited about reading. I also love it when after my presentation, more hands go up when asked, “Who wants to be a writer when they grow up?”
When are you most creative?
In the mornings.
What book are you currently reading?
Mr. Blackwell, about the man who did the Worst Dressed lists.
Lots of students are gearing up for spring break, do you have any book recommendations?
The Tapper Twins.
My book, An Eye for Color: The Story of Josef Albers, since it has art activities in the back.

NatashaWingThanks again to Natasha Wing for appearing.  Natasha is a daughter, sister, wife, mamma to her kitty cat, biker, hiker, skier, traveler and lover of chocolate and pink. Most proudly, she’s an author.

She is best known for her paperback series based on the popular story, The Night Before Christmas. The stories are about families celebrating holidays and other big events in kids’ lives such as the first day of school and losing a tooth. Her titles include The Night Before Easter, the original book in the series which was published in 1999, and The Night Before Kindergarten, which has regularly been on bestseller lists since its publication in 2001 and is also a sticker book, part of a kindergarten gift set, and an ebook.  Wing’s multicultural book, Jalapeño Bagels, is a favorite among elementary school teachers and students. The story is based on a real bakery in Arcata, California and includes recipes from the bakery.  An Eye for Color: The Story of Josef Albers is about a neighbor of hers when she was growing up in Connecticut. The artist of the “Homage to the Square” paintings studied color for 27 years and changed how teachers taught color.  Several of her poems appear in anthologies, and she has also written articles for children’s magazines such as Highlights and Babybug.  Natasha’s interactive presentations bring the writing and publishing process to life.
